    The Queen has three official residences - the best known, Buckingham
    Palace; the oldest, Windsor Castle; and the most romantic, Palace of
    Holyroodhouse. Among the few working royal palaces in the world
    today, they serve as both family homes and as the setting for the
    business of Monarchy. Each has its own distinctive story - long
    histories that reflect good and bad times, triumph and tragedy and,
    of course, the lives of some of our most memorable kings and queens.
    But they all share certain features - incredible collections of
    treasures that reflect both the tastes of their occupants and the
    artistic development of the nation, and architecture that has
    evolved across the centuries to meet the needs of different ages,
    reflecting the story of Britain and its people like no other
    buildings.Buckingham Palace may be just about the most famous
    building in the world, but its story is much less familiar. Fiona
    Bruce reveals how Englands most spectacular palace emerged from a
    swampy backwater in just 300 years. The journey of discovery takes
    her from the sewers of London to the magnificent State Rooms; from a
    home for camels and elephants to the artistic brilliance of
    C18th-century Venice; and from a princes Chinese fantasy to the
    secret of how the Palaces glittering chandeliers are cleaned today.
