  2. A collection of rather tired and shabby rooms for a palace. It needs a competent designer to refurbish it and give it grandeur.

    1. Are you serious?? How are they shabby?? If you knew anything about the Palace, 3 photos are not of the palace and 2 more are from the Queens Doll house.

    2. The first bedroom with the quilt looks jumbled. Nothing matches. The rest of the rooms look good.

    3. The first bedroom is not in Buckingham palace. Also the two French style bedrooms are not there either. One is in Versailles.

  3. I used to think how wonderful it would be to live in this kind of splendor and beauty. Now in my older age I think how drafty and cold they must be. How difficult to heat. I'm proud I love in my warm and cozy little home and not assigned to have to live in a castle or palace.

  4. Queen Victoria was the first monarch to live in Buckingham Palace as a principle Royal Palace in 1837. 3 of your photos are not rooms in the Palace and 2 more are from the Queens doll house.
