Buckingham Palace has been the official residence of the Queen of England. However, it’s worldwide known not only for this fact. This place is the central headquarters of the monarchy in the United Kingdom. Without a doubt, London offers a wide range of diverse attractions. But only Buckingham Palace is the main palace in the country which holds numerous receptions and state events. Buckingham Palace

The Palace is more than the English Queen’s Home

After Queen Victoria mounted the throne, she had no hesitations that the palace must become the official residence. She was not scared of the smell of mold floating in the air of every room. She realized the level of efforts to take before this place could shine again and become the pearl of the capital again. Great Britain collected plenty of attractions throughout its history. But some places stand against time and its destructive strength.

Serious restoration process had taken places before the palace was re-born again. Buckingham Palace was proclaimed to be the main Royal headquarters back in 1837. Even though Queen Victoria moved to Windsor Castle after her husband’s death, the palace still remained to be the central residence of the English monarchs.
