Overview

A royal residence for over 300 years, Kensington Palace has been home to some of the most iconic members of Britain's royal family. It was within the walls of this intimate palace where Queen Victoria was born, while more recently it has been the home of Diana, Princess of Wales. Today, it is the residence of Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and their family. Inside the State Apartments, adorned with an impressive display of paintings from the Royal Collection, you'll catch a glimpse into the private lives of the British royal family.

VICTORIA: A ROYAL CHILDHOOD
Discover the story of Princess Victoria, the young girl destined to be queen, in the rooms where she was born and raised at Kensington Palace.

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Victoria’s birth, this permanent exhibition explores how an indulged young princess blossomed into the independent and iconic monarch we remember.

The display includes remarkable objects relating to Victoria's early years – including a poignant scrapbook of mementos created by her German governess, Baroness Lehzen, which goes on public display for the first time, and Victoria's doll house.
