The Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace commenced on the 27th of July, and this years’ exhibition runs until the 1st of October. The theme is The Queens Year and is a collection of Her Majesty’s outfits and robes (including the Robe of State) on display to the public for the first time.
Some of the state rooms are also available to the public and it is a rare chance for visitors to walk around these magnificent rooms and admire the furniture and paintings, or to escape to the tranquillity of the palace gardens. Walking amongst the flowers it is hard to imagine the busy city which is bustling on every side.
You will not catch a glimpse of the Queen, however, as at this time of year the Royal Family are cruising off Scotland before their summer vacation at Balmoral Castle on Royal Deeside.
