You might know it or not but, Buckingham Palace is the official London residence and principal workplace of the British monarch.

Originally known as Buckingham House, the building was before a big townhouse built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1705. Later the place was acquired by George III in 1761 as a private residence for Queen Charlotte.

During the 19th century it was enlarged, principally by architects John Nash and Edward Blore. Buckingham Palace finally became the official royal palace of the British monarch on the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837.

The Queen's Gallery was built on the site of a chapel destroyed by a bomb and opened to the public in 1962 to exhibit works of art from the Royal Collection. The gallery host the Royal collections. Some 450 items are displays on a rota basis from the collections. It presents temporary exhibitions all year round.
