Royal Connections

Kensington Palace
It's hard to miss royal connections in London. Royal history is everywhere as is current royal presence. After a walk through Kensington Gardens, Elaine and I visited Kensington Palace, current home of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. And as I found out during Monday's news announcement of Prince Harry's engagement to Meghan Markle, the future home of this vibrant young royal couple. They will live in Nottingham Cottage located on the Palace grounds.
The Palace is lovely and has a nice display of vintage clothing...
I can't even imagine wearing this dress. No wonder ladies had to pass through doors sideways! And how did they ever sit down or worse yet...use the loo?

The exhibit of some of Princess Diana's clothes and sketches of her wardrobe pieces was both fascinating and poignant. She was a never-to-be-forgotten princess.

Stay tuned for another royal connection in my next blog post.
