Like a lot of families, the Royal Family take their holidays in August. While they’re away, they open their doors to two splendid Royal residences that are otherwise closed to visitors, so what better time to glimpse into the lives of our British royals, the most famous royal family in the world.

Features of this tour

FROGMORE HOUSE
Situated in the Windsor Great Park, this was the stylish setting for Prince Harry and Meghan’s evening wedding reception back in May.
Frogmore House has been a favourite royal retreat for more than 300 years. It became a royal residence in 1792 when George III bought it for his wife, Queen Charlotte. The interests and talents of several generations of the royal family influenced Frogmore's interior - Queen Charlotte's passion for botany is reflected in the decoration of the house and for almost 20 years Frogmore was the home of Queen Victoria's mother. Queen Victoria herself often visited Frogmore during her long widowhood and worked on her papers there. Also of interest is the Britannia Room which is furnished with a selection of items from the Royal Yacht Britannia.
 
CLARENCE HOUSE
Clarence House has been a royal residence since 1827 when King William IV lived here in preference to St James’ Palace, which he found too cramped. Many members of the royal family have lived here over the years including Queen Victoria’s children and her mother as well as Princess Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Princess Anne was born here in 1950 and in 1953, after the death of her husband King George VI, the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret moved here.
In WWII, it was used by the Red Cross and the St John Ambulance Brigade as their headquarters before being given to Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
The Prince of Wales moved there in 2003 after the house underwent massive refurbishment following the death of his grandmother, Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
