Buckingham Palace is the official London residence of our monarch and has been since 1837. It has 775 rooms including 19 staterooms and 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms and 78 bathrooms. The balcony of Buckingham Palace is one of the most famous in the world and has become the focal point for national celebration. From George V’s appearance on the eve of the First World War to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s post-wedding kiss more recently in 2011, the famous balcony has been the setting of many iconic moments in history. The tradition was started by Queen Victoria during the opening celebrations of the Great Exhibition in 1851.
