Buckingham Palace is located in London, England and has served as the residence for the Royal family since 1837. Today it’s the administrative headquarters for the Monarch.
The Palace has 775 rooms and more than 50,000 people visit each year as guests to banquets, lunches, dinners, receptions and the Royal Garden parties.
Buckingham Palace was once known as Buckingham House and was built in 1703 for the Duke of Buckingham.
Below is a picture of Royal Guards riding horses through the crowd in front of the Palace. The Palace has 830,000 square feet of space. There are 1,514 doors in Buckingham Palace.
The 760 windows in the Palace are cleaned every 6 weeks to keep them clean. A flag always flies above Buckingham Palace. When the Queen is in they fly the Royal Standard. When she’s away they fly the Union Flag.
There are 350 working clocks and watches in the Palace.
During the Holiday’s, they use a projector to put colored images on the front of the Palace. It looks extremely cool when you see it in person.
The only problem was that the section on the right side of the building wasn’t lit for some reason so it’s not a symmetrical look
This was my favorite image that they projected onto the Palace. I wish that one section to the right had been lit though.
This is another good look at what the Palace looks like during the Holiday’s.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about Buckingham Palace.
I couldn’t resist… I had to get a selfie in the front.
