Kensington Palace


Categories: Architecture, Royalty

A residence of the British royal family since the 17th century. Built as Nottingham House by the Earl of Nottingham. It passed from his heir (who was secretary of state to King William III), to the monarch, who was asthmatic and wanted a residence away from the smoky air of London (Kensington was a suburban village at this time). British monarchs lived there until the death of King George II.
