The Main Event

Immerse yourself in everything Royal and visit The King's Gallery located by Buckingham Palace on the old site of a private chapel for Queen Victoria.

Developed as an art gallery after the chapel was destroyed in the second world war, in 1997 the gallery was expanded and modernised and opened by Queen Elizabeth II in May 2002 as part of the Golden Jubilee Celebrations and today hosts a program of exhibitions from the Royal Collection.

The current exhibition is Royal Portraits A Century of Photography - and will run from the 17th May 2024 to the 6th October 2024.

For centuries, portraiture has played a vital role in shaping the public’s perception of the Royal Family. This exhibition will chart the evolution of royal portrait photography from the 1920s to the present day, bringing together more than 150 photographic prints, proofs and documents from the Royal Collection and the Royal Archives.

Discover works from the most celebrated royal photographers, from Cecil Beaton and Dorothy Wilding to Annie Leibovitz and Rankin. Explore some of the close relationships between royal sitters and photographers, seen most clearly through the lens of Antony Armstrong-Jones (later Lord Snowdon), who married Princess Margaret in 1960.

The exhibition will shed light on behind-the-scenes processes, from photographers’ handwritten annotations to never-before-seen correspondence with members of the Royal Family and their staff, these materials will reveal the stories behind some of the most celebrated photographs ever taken of the Royal Family.

This exhibition is taking place at The King's Gallery, Buckingham Palace formerly known as The Queen’s Gallery.

Once you have enjoyed touring The King's Gallery, take a stroll down the embankment towards The Royal Horseguards Hotel for a culinary treat of either a two course lunch, a sparkling afternoon tea or a traditional afternoon tea!
