My visit to Buckingham Palace was yet another experience that reminded me of my childhood. Those days when I wished I was a Princess, when I was always setting up afternoon teas using my little kiddy tea sets. 

When it comes to places and things in London, I am always reminded of my childhood, not because I have ever been there before but probably because I was born in a country which was once part of the British Colony. Also, I grew up alongside a Nanna who lived in the era of the queen. Therefore, there is that bit of cultural background which somehow relates to all things London or doing things somewhat with that bit of royal or the ‘queen’s’ way. 

Buckingham Palace has a really interesting architecture. Seeing it on television and seeing it in person are just two different things. Some may say, “arghhhh…it’s just a palace, just another building” Oh well, when you are in the premises, it is does not give that vibe of being just another palace or just another building. It gives that colloquial feel as you walk long the Palace streets, as you are able to somehow sense that bit of royalty in the air. It is a building with beautiful architecture and surroundings, well balanced greenery and building architecture.

I am happy I got to see Buckingham Palace in person because, heyyyyy! The Queen lives there you know!!! ;-P
