About the event
At the Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace in 2018 experience A Royal Welcome.
Find out what goes on behind the scenes to create the magic and magnificence of an official visit to the Palace. From the dresses designed to the ingredients chosen and the porcelain selected, the preparations behind State Banquets, Garden Parties and other royal occasions will be revealed.
Last year the Royal Family welcomed around 62,000 guests to Buckingham Palace, at State Visits, receptions, Garden Parties, Investitures and private audiences. This year, displays throughout the State Rooms will recreate the settings for these occasions, and will show the preparations that go into each one, whether a private audience with Her Majesty The Queen or a Garden Party for thousands.
To mark the 70th birthday of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales this year, visitors to the Summer Opening of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace will enjoy a special display featuring a number of works of art personally selected by His Royal Highness.
