Buckingham Palace, London, Photo Tour
Buckingham Palace has been the official London residence of the British monarch since Queen Victoria ascended the throne in 1837.
Built in 1703 years ago by the ‘man who was the Duke of Buckingham at that time. When George III became king soon after, he liked the palace so much that he bought it, and English kings and queens have lived in it ever since. Buckingham Palace is attended night and day by special troops of the British Army. These troops work in shifts, like all guards. Each time a new shift comes on, there is a very colorful ceremony called the “Changing of the Guard.” The bugle call at this time suggested the music for the song that starts, “They’re changing Guards at Buckingham Palace, Christopher Robin went down with Alice.”
