Diana: Designing for a Princess

Handwritten notes by the princess show the joy and happiness she found in developing her royal style, and the careful thought she put into outfits that would later become iconic.

Description

An actual royal palace - it's where Prince William lives with the Duchess of Cambridge and their kids. Though you probably won't bump into them in the hallway, it's still a fascinating window into the lives of royals past and present.

London's Kensington Palace has been a royal residence for over 300 years. At Queen Victoria's behest, the State Rooms were opened to the public in 1899, on her 80th birthday. Since then it's been both a private residence for the royal family and a public museum.

Head up the magnificent Grand Staircase, visit the King's State Apartments, and the King's Gallery. The beautifully ornate Cupola Room and the Drawing Room will make you feel like you're among royalty (which, of course, you are).

Afterwards, swing through the Palace Gardens. Wander the shady Cradle Walk and look out upon the ornamental flowers in the Sunken Garden. It's a great opportunity to practice your royal wave.

Insider tip

Queen Victoria was born in the palace and met her eventual husband, Albert, there. It was only when she was coronated that she finally moved into Buckingham Palace.

An expensive visit as there was not a lot to view, probably better to wait until the Victoria Exhibition in May. Also gardens should look at their best.
