We are a Royal-Family obsessed Londoner. From the history of the crown and regal family-feuds, to the design of Buckingham Palace and its royal traditions; there is nothing I don’t know about the fascinating family that call Buckingham Palace home. Buckingham Palace is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the England. It’s so hectic, in fact, that without the help of an expert guide you’ll surely miss some of the sight’s most iconic features. To truly appreciate this magnificent palace, its traditions and history, in all their regal glory join me and my pals; Sarah, James, Anna, Ahmed and a few others, to experience Buckingham Palace like a royal.
