While admiring the beautiful tree set up at Kensington Palace, it's also easy to admire the beauty of the Palace itself.  First known as Buckingham House, it was a big townhouse designed for the Duke of Buckingham in 1703. It got bought by King George II in 1761 as Queen Charlotte’s private home after which it got known as The Queen’s House.

During the 19th century, the structure got expanded and became the principal residence for the British Royalty in 1837 with Queen Victoria. Located in Westminster, it is not surprising that Kensington Palace is currently listed as one of the most beautiful castles in the world.
