Summary/Review: Since the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837, Buckingham Palace has been the private London home of the royal family and the headquarters of the British monarchy. Subsequent generations have made their mark, but the Palace remains, in purpose and in essence, the creation of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.00Victoria was a modern and enlightened monarch, and introduced a number of innovations to the Palace, from the construction of the iconic East Front and elegant Ballroom to the new facilities of electricity and the telephone. This book traces the transformation of Buckingham Palace from a relatively minor royal residence into a grand stage for state occasions, a symbol of the British monarchy and a national monument.
