Where: Buckingham Palace
Royal relatives have inhabited the stately Buckingham Palace for centuries, and it has been the official London residence of the sovereign since 1837. As a 10-year-old princess in 1936, Elizabeth moved into the palace with her family when her father, George VI, became king — and since her own reign began in 1952, the queen has worked there, too.
Buckingham Palace boasts 775 rooms and functions as a home, office, art gallery, and year-round tourist attraction. It also serves as the site of many official visits with world leaders and a celebratory space for the royal family. We often see the entire brood step out onto Buckingham's famous balcony for Trooping the Colour, as well as after big royal weddings!
