Being a Royalist From Birth

Being a Royalist From Birth

Favourite Places, Tower of London

For anyone who is new to the blog, I am a historian who is also a royalist, meaning that I try my hardest to visit pretty much every royal palace possible. Kensington Palace, Holyroodhouse, and Hampton Court Palace are all places I have had the good fortune […]
