40 things you didn’t know about Buckingham Palace

Everyone has heard of Buckingham Palace, the home of the Queen of England, but few people know these obscure facts. For example, the Palace has a jaw-dropping 775 rooms, seventy-eight of which are bathrooms. To get into and out of these rooms, there are over 1,500 doors. Light enters through 760 windows, each of which is cleaned every six weeks.

Buckingham Palace has its share of history, too. The spot was established in 1761 when George III bought Buckingham House for his wife. It was meant to a be a family home, as opposed to the ceremonial residence, St. James’s Place. See more fascinating facts about the royal residence at the article.

    Extremely disappointed…you ‘trick’ people to open an article that seems very interesting and full of history of Buckingham Palace when it doesn’t!!
