Kensington Palace

Bert at Kensington Palace!

Bert at Kensington Palace!

Bert strolls down the street
And what does he see?
A Queen Victoria statue
As beautiful as can be

Why, it’s Kensington Palace
Bert wants to see more
So he grabs his camera
And heads through the door

Bert's anxious to get inside!

A Jacobean mansion
Was the original design
Then bought by William & Mary
In 1689

It became the home
Of British Royalty
Along with those who pledged
Their faith & loyalty

Bert's heading to the Orangery for Afternoon Tea!

Bert’s heading to the Orangery for Afternoon Tea!

Queen Anne built a greenhouse
In 1705
During the harsh winters
It’s where the plants survived

Anne called it the Orangery
But it’s changed over time
Now it has afternoon tea
With scones that are simply sublime!

Inside Kensington palace
See the Queen & King State Rooms
You can play royal games
And try on some costumes!

King Bert will see you now

Bert tries on a vest
Then plays some Game of Court
His opponent is his grandpa
Who is a very good sport

Bert might be losing... he's not sure how to play!

After a few hands
It’s time to move on

Love the wardrobe!

Love the wardrobe!

There’s some optical devices
Which you can look through
And see photos come to life
It’s truly quite a view

Checking out the optical devices

Princess Diana
Was once a resident here
There’s many tributes to her
That will never disappear

Now the Palace is home
To Duke William & Duchess Kate
Along with their son George
Who have free reign of the estate

Lovely!

Lovely!

Before you leave the palace
Make sure to walk the grounds
To see the amazing gardens
And the Merry-go-rounds!

Gorgeous!

Gorgeous!

Bert thinks Kensington palace
Is truly a sight to see
But now Bert has to leave
He’s got another place to be!

Bert loved Kensington Palace!
