Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace has been the offical London home of the sovereign since it was built by the first Duke of Buckingham between 1701 and 1705.

In the early 19th century, King George IV had had enough with his London home and ordered for it to be knocked down and rebuilt from scratch. However when parliament failed to agree with his wishes it was decided that Buckingham Palace should be rebuilt. It became the official residence of Queen Victoria in 1837 and is today used as both a home and office by the present Queen, Elizabeth II.

Today, the palace is the setting for "The Changing of the Guard" ceremony which is held in days throughout the year.
