Just a quick little travel photo diary today of my recent to trip to Kensington Palace with a friend of mine last Saturday morning. I’m actually shocked it’s taken me this long to actually visit considering I’ve lived in the UK my entire life, but it was so worth a wander before having a proper catch up with my friend over hefty amounts of Italian food and coffee in Soho later on.
Thoughts from the day
: – I am likely exactly the same height Queen Victoria was for the entirety of the her reign – fingers crossed I don’t end up as the same weight as her at the end of her reign
: – The British monarch is full of incestuous history – and it’s probably a good thing William’s married outside of the blue blooded legacy (too many illnesses, too little time to elaborate)
: – Catherine Walker’s designs are just as stunning up close as they were in some of the most recognisable pap snaps. The Fashion Rules exhibition was running when we ventured down and as always I got very excited at the prospect of seeing proper couture up close. Walker’s designs for the late Lady Di are seriously stunning.
: – I can’t take King George III seriously anymore – not that I could take the Mad King seriously anyway but now I can only picture this gif of Jonathan Groff prancing about Kensington singing You’ll Be Back *shakes fist at Hamilton*
: – The King’s staircase is seriously overcompensating for something – especially compared to the Queen’s, which is still beautiful but is a tasteful exercise in self control for interior design
