Kensington Palace



Kensington Palace

A royal palace from many years and home to Charles & Diana.

Location: Palace Avenue, Kensington

Description: Kensington Palace is a royal residence set within Kensington Gardens to the west of Hyde Park. It has been a residence of the British Royal Family since the 17th century.

This was the official residence of Diana, Princess of Wales until her death in 1997. In 1981, apartments 8 and 9 were converted after her marriage to Charles, The Prince of Wales.

Princess Margaret also resided here until her death in 2002, and Princess Alice until her death in 2004.

Today it is the official residence of The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke and Duchess of Kent and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent. Kensington Palace is also used on an unofficial basis by Prince Harry, as well as his cousin Zara Phillips.

The palace features long passageways, a helicopter pad, and many outdoor gardens, including one on the roof.

The Gardens were designed for King George II and Queen Caroline in the 1720s and 1730s by the royal gardener, Charles Bridgeman. The wide, tree-lined avenues of Bridgeman's plan were all designed to give stunning vistas of the palace.
