On a sunny day with clear blue skies in London last Spring, we ventured towards my favourite Hyde Park to visit the newly renovated Kensington Palace, the birthplace of Queen Victoria and former home to the late Princess Diana and Princess Margaret. The Palace is still home to some other members of the Royal Family with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge about to move in this coming July. It was a one fine day to stroll around Hyde Park, visit the palace, its colourful gardens and also have lunch at the Orangery Restaurant near the Palace gardens. Visiting London in the Spring was truly magical.
These were original photos I photographed from inside the Palace.
Orangery which was built by Queen Anne during the 18th Century in the Kensington Palace Gardens. It is a restaurant now offering delicious British food for lunch and their famous Afternoon Tea. We were lucky that there was no line up. After we were seated, there were many people that arrived which caused a long line up outside this beautiful building. After our visit there and a stroll in Hyde Park, my Aunt took me shopping at Regent Street to show me her favourite store, Ted Baker.
They say no Sovereign was more loved
than I am.
- Queen Victoria.
Canada will celebrate Queen Victoria Day with fireworks across the nation.
May you all have a lovely Spring Weekend!
