Buckingham Palace is the London residence and administrative headquarters of the monarch of the United Kingdom.
Located in the City of Westminster, the palace is often at the centre of state occasions and royal hospitality. It has been a focal point for the British people at times of national rejoicing and mourning.
The building at the core of today’s palace was a large townhouse built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1703, originally known as Buckingham House. Built on a site that had been in private ownership for at least 150 years. Acquired by King George III in 1761as a private residence for Queen Charlotte and became known as The Queen’s House.
Enlarged during the 19th century principally by architects John Nash and Edward Blore, who constructed three wings around a central courtyard. Buckingham Palace became the London residence of the British monarch on the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837.
