Hampton Court Palace was a royal residence from the early 1500s until the 1730s. Successive sovereigns filled their apartments with the best artworks from the Royal Collection, for the private enjoyment of the royal family and as grand public statements of royal authority. Various parts of Hampton Court have functioned as purpose-built royal art galleries over the centuries, where masterpieces by some of the greatest European artists were collected together and displayed. The Cumberland Suite will open in October 2014 and will be the first chapter in a new Hampton Court story aimed at improving visitors’ understanding and experience of the artworks on display across the palace, from Mantegna’s ‘Triumphs of Caesar’ to the baroque murals of Antonio Verrio.

Once a countryside retreat for King William III and Queen Mary, Kensington Palace was at the epicentre of royal life in the 17th and 18th centuries. The spectacular King’s State Apartments will bring to life the court of George II and Queen Caroline this year. Kensington Palace will continue to host two further exhibitions in 2014: Victoria Revealed explores the life and reign of the Palace’s most famous resident. Inspired by extracts from the Queen’s private diaries, the exhibition presents a truly intimate account of Victoria’s extraordinary life. Kensington Palace’s royal connections reach into the 20th century.
