Kensington Palace

On Sunday morning I headed to Kensington Palace (with my camera memory stick) to have a look around the palace. The palace's state apartments are open to the public to look around at the exhibitions. The exhibitions on at the moment are the "The Last Debutantes" a world totally different from ours and various dresses worn by the the debutantes and Princess Diana.

Kensington Palace is a royal residence set in Kensington Gardens in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London, England. It has been a residence of the British Royal Family since the 17th century. 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.

In 1981 apartments 8 and 9 were combined to create the London residence of the newly-married Prince and Princess of Wales, Charles and Diana, and it remained the official residence of Diana, Princess of Wales after her divorce until her death. Her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, went to local nursery and pre-preparatory schools in Notting Hill.

Until 1997, it was the official residence of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

It was amazing to see how huge the area was that was covered in flowers after Princess Diana died. Unfortunately, no royals were spotted.

And in the afternoon headed to Battersea Park to hang out with the others and lap up some of the afternoon sun.
