Kensington Palace was also the childhood home of Queen Victoria, the great, great, great, great grandmother of The Duke of Cambridge and and The Duke of Sussex.

It was at the palace that Victoria met Prince Albert, her future Consort, and was woken with news of her accession in June 1837. She held her first Privy Council meeting that same day in the Red Saloon and a few weeks later departed for Buckingham Palace, admitting she would miss the ‘poor old palace’.
