Buckingham Palace serves as both the office and London residence of Her Majesty The Queen, as well as the administrative headquarters of the Royal Household. It is one of the few working royal palaces remaining in the world today.
At the Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace in 2015 experience A Royal Welcome.
Find out what goes on behind the scenes to create the magic and magnificence of an official visit to the Palace. From the dresses designed to the ingredients chosen and the porcelain selected, the preparations behind State Banquets, Garden Parties and other royal occasions will be revealed.
Last year the Royal Family welcomed around 62,000 guests to Buckingham Palace, at State Visits, receptions, Garden Parties, Investitures and private audiences. This year, displays throughout the State Rooms will recreate the settings for these occasions, and will show the preparations that go into each one, whether a private audience with Her Majesty The Queen or a Garden Party for thousands.
For the first time ever, visitors to the Summer Opening will enter the State Rooms through the Grand Entrance, used by those who come to the Palace at the invitation of The Queen, including Heads of State and Prime Ministers.
