Buckingham Palace was originally the townhouse for the Duke of Buckingham. Eventually three wings were built around the original structure, and it became the primary residence of the British monarchy.
The palace opens her halls and state rooms to visitors during the summer months, but the gardens and lake in the rear remain private, as the Queen hosts an exclusive garden party here annually.
