They are terrific.

Flickr has also put up a few very high resolution photos of State Apartments.  Worth a look.

Here you are, but since they keep adding photos, the page number does change -

One last thing, you must click on the photo, then click view all sizes.  The larger format of the photos are 6.5 mb.

Here i sa drawn portait of Queen Mary at Buckingham Palace in 1926 and im strongly sure that she is sitting in her private sitting room in the north wing of the Palace.
Compared to photographs i have of the Queens sitting room from the time of Queen Victoria and from the time of Queen Mary herself the detailing above the door looks exactly the same which leads me to believe that this is definetly the Queens sitting room.
It appears in other ways very different to the way it was in Queens Victorias day though, it looks much less clutterd and cleaner with a very nice silk damask on the walls.

Unfortunatly i dont think it was erick. I found this picture on a website that was dedicated to an artist from around this time, id love it though if there was a photo version of this picture and it would be even better if it was colour, then the mystery of the Queens sitting room and the way its decorated would come to and end.
My own wild guess however after studying the photograph of this room from around 1914 is that the damask is a bluey purple, i have no idea why its just what comes into my head lol.

Does anyone have details (and perhaps pictures) regarding William and Katherine's "cottage" in Kensington Palace?

Hello Windsor,

Over on the Kensington Palace Floor Plans thread (http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=14564.0) there are some posts discussing this very topic. Refer to my post #11 & #12. I'm afraid that's all the information that is out there at the moment, but we will know soon enough which apartment/cottage was chosen. Plus, in post #13, CHRISinUSA, quite rightly points out that the apartment/cottage they initially will be housed in is a temporary home until a larger property becomes available.

Cheers,

RoyalWatcher

An interesting view of the Ballroom at Sandringham.

In my opinion not the nicest room ive seen in any one of the Queen's residences official or private.
