• Kensington Palace is a royal residence in London
  • Famous royals have lived there over the years

Kensington Palace is one of the largest and oldest residences of the Royal Family. It was acquired by King William III in 1689.

However, it seems this palace is not much appreciated by members of the Royal Family, since many choose, if they can, to live elsewhere!

The palace was the vacation residence of King William III and Queen Mary. Later, it would be the home of the young Queen Victoria and eventually the home of the princesses Margaret and Diana.
