Buckingham Palace has been the official workplace and residence of the British monarch since the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1837. The history of the site dates back to the 17th century, and what was once the Buckingham House was modified both inside and out throughout its history, including its most significant expansion by architect John Nash in the 19th century. Once completely closed to the public, a handful of the State Rooms was opened for visitors in 1993, and can generally be visited throughout August and September. The Queen’s Gallery is open year-round. Wondering if the Queen’s at home? Look for the Royal Standard, the sovereign’s unique official flag " the Union Flag is flown when the monarch is away.
