The palace was once a small and suburban villa, known as Nottingham House. New monarchs William III and Mary II chose this modest mansion in 1689 to be their country retreat. Over the years, Stuart and Georgian monarchs transformed the palace into a fashionable home for Britainís young royal families. Queen Caroline shaped the palace and gardens, and Queen Victoria spent her childhood here. She left to live in Buckingham Palace in 1837. Kensington later became home for minor royals, including her daughter, the talented sculptor Princess Louise. More recent inhabitants include Diana, Princess of Wales, Princess Margaret, and currently, TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children, and TRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Your admission ticket includes the King's & Queen's State Apartments, the King's Gallery plus the beautiful formal and sunken gardens together with the new Victoria exhibitions as 2019 commemorates the 200th anniversay of her birth.
