Royals are always intimidating. The most famous being the British royals. The desire to get a peek into the lives, palaces, their food, clothes of royalty is paramount. Undoubtedly Queen Elizabeth is very popular and an important personality.
All around the UK, one gets a glimpse of the monarchy. We were lucky to have even witnessed Queen’s birthday celebrations in Edinburgh, changing of the guard ceremony at Windsor castle
and felt the regality in the air. Here is a sneak peek into royalty.
The Royal Abodes
There is a long list of royal residences, some privately owned and some royal palaces. Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Kensington Palace, St. James Palace are the familiar names. Others include Balmoral Castle, Sandringham House, Holyrood Palace, Hillsborough Castle, Clarence House to name a few.
