Royal ChildhoodThe eagerly awaited announcement of the birth of Prince George of Cambridge at 4.24pm on 22nd July 2013 is one of 150 objects spanning more than 250 years on display at Royal Childhood, this summer's special exhibition at Buckingham Palace. Well-loved toys, treasured family gifts and tiny outfits belonging to nine generations of royal children, as well as previously unseen photographs and film footage, are among the objects from the Royal Collection, the Royal Archives and the private collections of members of the Royal Family. The spectacular silver-gilt Lily Font, commissioned by Queen Victoria for the christening of her first daughter Princess Victoria in 1841 and used at almost all major royal baptisms since, is part of the display and can be see in the Music Room alongside the silk-satin and lace christening robe worn by Prince George of Cambridge.

 

About Buckingham Palace

England's most famous royal palace, and the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II, Buckingham Palace opens the doors of its State Rooms to the public every summer. Originally acquired by King George III for his wife Queen Charlotte, Buckingham House was increasingly known as the 'Queen's House' and 14 of George III's children were born there.
