The children loved our visit to Buckingham palace and were pleased to know the queen was at home as the flag was flying high! They had lots of questions and it was lovely to start explaining about the royal family. They loved watching the changing of the guards, if you do want to see this, make sure you check the Internet for times as they do change and some months it only happens on certain days. The visit brought back happy memories of doing exactly the same thing when I was a child. This is a real must on a trip to London.
