Buckingham Palace Postcard

The postcard shows an aerial view of the Buckingham Palace and palace grounds. I had the chance to visit the palace during my UK visit in 2004, and both the facade and the interiors are really, really grand and magnificent. Really fit for a king/queen.

Buckingham Palace, located in the City of Westminster, is the official London residence and the administrative headquarters of the British Monarch. Buckingham Palace became the official royal palace of the British monarch on the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837.
