Hey Beautiful person,

How are you?

I am glad to announce this post as the last series on my recent trip to England and for 2016. If you missed any please do go back through my previous  posts. As I mentioned in the first series;  I visited the London Bridge,  London Eye,  Big Ben and finally the Buckingham Palace.

The Buckingham palace was pretty big and beautiful in it’s own way . I was not able to capture a full image of the entire palace. It was the last place I visited which meant the sun had gone down by the time we arrived. This also had an effect on the lighting, regardless we tried to capture as much as we could .

Queen Victoria was the first monarch to live there. As of now, living in the  the Buckingham Palace is the Queen and Prince Philip but also the London Duke of York (Prince Andrew) and the Earl and Countess of Wessex (Prince Edward and his wife) and their daughter.

The buckingham palace was originally know as the Buckingham house in in 1703 . It was then bought privately for Queen Charlotte and renamed the Queen’s House. For more interesting facts click here.

Some say the royals cost a lot on the British economic . This from security to maintenance and many more royal related issue. Some say the royal family add an interesting dynamic to the British culture, which then attractes millions of tourist. If you ask me from what I saw on the day I visited and from the turn up everytime Kate Middleton has a child. The British people love their royal family! There were people everywhere, as you can see it was hard to get a picture without loads of people in it. I was even told some people make it a duty to visit this place at least once a week !

This brings us to the end of today’s post; let me know if you how I split my travel posts into series. I will have one or two more post before the end of the year 2016, if not see you in the new year.

See you soon

Florence
