The feminine influence of generations of women in the English monarchy has shaped this stylish Palace and elegant gardens. The birthplace and childhood home of Queen Victoria, the Palace first became a royal residence for King William III and Queen Mary II in 1689. Mary felt 'caged- in' at Whitehall and much preferred her New Kensington home, which was extended for them by Sir Christopher Wren. The famous Orangery was built in 1704 by Queen Anne, and George I's wife, Queen Caroline, another keen gardener, added further improvements. Today, the Palace houses a stunning permanent display of fashionable and formal dresses, the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection, which includes Queen Victoria's wedding dress and dresses worn by Diana, Princess of Wales.

There is also an exciting exhibition included with the entry ticket: Fashion Rules is an elegant new exhibition about the history of the monarchy in the 20th century with exquisite dresses, some of them rarely seen, of S. M. Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret and Princess of Wales, Diana. This picturesque lush exhibition will be a nostalgic review of recent decades.
