  • Visit The Queen’s Gallery, opened by Her Majesty The Queen in May 2002 as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations
  • Soak up the royal English splendor and enjoy an audio tour of the Gallery's current exhibition, including special insights and commentary from Royal Collection Trust experts
  • See some of the world's finest paintings, drawings and decorative arts, from the Royal Collection

Step through the pillared portico and right into The Queen’s Gallery. This public art gallery is part of Buckingham Palace and thus a pretty special place to view some (royally approved) artwork! The latest exhibition Charles II: Art & Power celebrates the opulence of the Stuart court, and explores the role of the arts in the re-establishment of the monarchy.

After a decade of austerity under the rule of Oliver Cromwell, Charles II was eager to return the royal courts to their former splendor, commissioning countless artworks and decorations that glorified and legitimized the monarchy.

The highlight of the new exhibition is John Michael Wright's larger-than-life portrait of Charles II in coronation robes and the real silver plate which sat on the high altar of Westminster Abbey during Charles's coronation.

You'll also see paintings by the old masters, rich tapestries, and a spectacular collection of silver-gilt furniture which would have sparkled throughout the Stuart court.

Don't forget your free multimedia guide for special insights and commentary from Royal Collection Trust experts!

Above all expectations. The audio guide was brilliant. Not crowded like the Royal Academy Charles I exhibition that we did the same day. Thank goodness as we did both on the same day . King Charles overload !

Portraits of Charles II's women predominate with two fine tapestries and a memorable portrait of the King looking merry and obviously enjoying himself! However, there were very many prints? etchings? of the king which are all very similar and I would have preferred to see more paintings and other items in the collection.
