Royal Interiors
« on: August 16, 2005, 03:22:00 AM »
It would be fun to see the interiors of some of the Royal Homes. Here's one to start - The Queen's sitting room at Sandringham in the 1970s.

This one of the rooms that houses the royal collection in BP.

That's the White Drawing Room at BP. It doesn't house items from the Royal Collection per se in the sense that the room is some sort of repository, although it contains items from the Royal Collection. Interestingly, the mirror to the left of Queen Alexandra's portrait, disguises a door from which the Queen apparently likes to emerge to surprise her guests.

If you haven't visited Buckingham Palace, it's worth doing so. Parts of it are surprisingly small and it's not as grand as I thought it would be. Nevertheless, it's fascinating and you don't have the sense of being hurried along.

Sorry - the pic must have been labelled wrong. Re visiting the palace: I would love to, but <sigh> it's a money thing and I don't live in the UK.

Here's Mary Stuart's bedroom at Holyrood House - sorry the pick is so small:

The Drawing Room - apparently the Royal Family and their guests often gather here to enjoy the afternoon and early evening light.
