#atozchallenge: K is for…Kensington Palace
In April, I’m posting 26 blogs, one for every letter of the alphabet. I write historical romance set in Regency England, and I’m offering a brief lexicon of words to help you understand the story world of my Regency characters. Follow the links for more in depth information.
K is for Kensington Palace:
As I mentioned in an earlier post, King George III had fourteen children. Fortunately, he had plenty of housing for them, including Kensington Palace.
Built as Nottingham House, in the late seventeenth century the name was changed by William and Mary, the first Royals to move in. George II was the last king to reside there. The palace became the residence of some of George III’s children, and today, Princes William and Harry have apartments there.
Kensington Palace is open for public tours. I’m putting it on my sightseeing list for the next time I visit London.
