Each summer, Buckingham Palace is opened to visitors and a special exhibition is put on in the State Rooms. This year’s ‘Queen Victoria’s Palace’ exhibition explores how Queen Victoria, celebrating the Bicentenary of her Birth, transformed Buckingham Palace from a private house into a working royal residence. Together with Prince Albert, she made the Palace a rallying point for the nation, a powerful symbol of the British Monarchy, and a family home for their nine children. The Exhibition opens on the 20th of July and will run until September 29th.

The Queen was given a preview of the Royal Collection Trust’s ‘Queen Victoria’s Palace’ exhibition, the centrepiece of this year’s summer opening of the state rooms at Buckingham Palace, on July 17th, which marks the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth. This annual tour is usually her last public appearance ahead of her departure for Balmoral Castle and the start of her annual summer holiday.
