The Queen's Palaces

The Queen's Palaces

Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse -these buildings have been part of British royal history for hundreds of years. The Queen's Palaces showcases the art and architecture, the interior decoration and the treasures stored inside these fabulous buildings and reveals the surprising and fascinating stories behind them. As well as telling the story of the building's creation, as Fiona Bruce walks around the rooms and corridors she captures the stories and histories of works of art and fine objects, so that each film marries the chronology of history and the pure delight of a walk around a beautiful interior.
