I think, taking interior and exterior into account, that Sandringham is the pretties of HM's houses.

THANKS SO MUCH, Richard!!

These pics are so nice!

I love Sandringham, it is not a palace, it's a house, a perfect place where to spend Christmas time.

Is there anyone who knows if Alexandra used to live at first floor or downstairs?

Thanks again.

Yes, I can see why QM hated York Cottage - that room is so cramped!!!

An exterior shot of staff at the Royal Mews, Buckingham Palance, 1847. Why do so many Victorians look like criminals?!

LOL - the scraggy beards and big hats, all very suspicous looking!

Here's the Drawing Room at Osborne House in QV's time:



And the Bridal Suite, arranged for Alice after her wedding:

That's a fascinating shot of the drawing room at Osborne. Looks almost unVictorian!

And another external shot. It's a huge shame they don't allow internal photography!
