Buckingham palace is the official  London residence of Her Majesty The
Queen and as such is one of the best known and most potent symbols of
the British monarchy. Yet it has been a royal residence  for only just
over two hundred and thirty years and a palace for much less; and its
name, known the world over, is owed not to a monarch but to an English

Buckingham House was built for John, first Duke of Buckingham, between
1702 and 1705. It was sold to the Crown in 1762. Surprisingly, since it
was a large house in a commanding position, it was never intended to be
the principal residence  of the monarch. 

Although King George III modernised and enlarged the house considerably
in the 1760s and 17770s, the transformations that give the building its

entertainment .These include  Receptions and State Banquets, and it is
on such occasions, when  the rooms are filled with  flowers and thronged
with  formally dressed  guests and liveried  servants,  that the Palace
is seen at its most splendid  and imposing. But of course the Palace is
also  far  more than just the London home of the Royal Family and a
place of lavish entertainment. It has become the administrative centre
of the monarchy where,  among a multitude of  engagements, Her Majesty
receives foreign  Heads of  State, Commonwealth leaders and
representatives of the Diplomatic Corps and  conducts   Investitures,
and where the majority of the Royal Houshold, consisting of six main
Departments and a staff of about three hundred people, have  their
