Buckingham Palace will open its gates to the public tomorrow for the 2018 Royal Collection Trust Opening.
The Queen enjoys her summer months at the private residence and is frequently joined by other members of the Royal Family.
One of the highlights includes a felt-hooded cloak that once belonged to Napoleon Bonaparte.
Speaking in the audio commentary, Prince Charles says: "his striking cedar wood pavilion stands at over four-and-a-half metres high and features intricate carvings which draw on the rich heritage of Afghan design".
The artwork is arranged on the walls of an octagonal room with tables filled with books by Charles, family snaps, vases and other decorative objects, while above are hung rows of paintings and other artworks, some with a tapestry as a backdrop.Читайте также: Tiger Woods speaks out after stunning third-round Open Championship performance

"It is meant to give a flavour of the Prince of Wales' own residences and reflect his personal involvement". "This oil sketch of my grandmother was painted as a study for a group portrait... to mark the 25th wedding anniversary of my parents, The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh".
The Palace's Ball Supper Room is lined with various family photos and works of art, including a special oil sketch of Queen Elizabeth that recently made a cameo in Prince Louis' christening portraits. "Both are dressed in the regimental uniform of the Household Cavalry - the Blues and Royals - and are particularly good likenesses".
She adds, "The display aims to show the public the prince's long-standing passion for art and the way this has been channeled into the creation and understanding of art charities".
Buckingham Palace switchboard was flooded with calls, according to The Sun, and sources said the Queen was left 'absolutely fuming'.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
