Mosaic Monday: Kensington Palace

I don't know what is wrong with me lately.  I keep forgetting about Mosaic Monday!  This week, I do have something of an excuse -- with the holiday weekend here in the United States, I just forgot what day it is.  :)

Anyway, here are a few photos from our trip to London last month.  This is Kensington Palace -- specifically, the King's State Apartments, sumptuously decorated in the reign of George II and Queen Caroline.  The Queen's State Apartments were closed for renovations, so I will just have to go back to visit them, right?  ;)

Here are the instructions to join today's post:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.

  1. Stunning photos of Kensington Palace, Mary! Such grand and ornate halls, precious and priceless paintings, and period elegance. Thanks for sharing and for hosting! Have a lovely week!

  8. Hi Mary, what glorious photographs. When I visited London I did get to visit Windsor Castle. My friend lived nearby and it was magical. Kensington Palace looks beautiful. Thank you for sharing your photos in such a lovely way.

  9. Beautiful photos of Kensington Palace. I read that Will and Kate are doing up an apartment in the palace for themselves. A lovely place to live, I would imagine.

  10. Thank you for sharing this. What a beautiful place to visit. A beautiful mosaic!
     When i look at English stylish royal residence and their surrondings, my heart beats faster. It's called Passion.

    I'll definitely put it on my list for next years visit.
    Imagine living in such surroundings - amazing.
