Buckingham Palace is the most expensive & beautiful house in the world ever built but it is not personal property. It is situated in the center of the state occasions and royal hospitality place in the City of Westminster. Before 1730 the property was known as Buckingham House. After that, it was in private ownership for at least 150 years.
Then it was taken by King George III in 1761 as a private residence for Queen’s Charlotte and became known as The Queen’s House. Right now Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of the UK’s sovereigns since 1837.
It has 775 rooms. In total, the palace has 19 staterooms, 52 guest rooms, 188 staff rooms, 92 offices, and 78 bathrooms. In measurements, the building is 108 meters long across the front, 120 meters deep and 24 meters high.
