The Queen’s Gallery is part of the west wing of
Buckingham Palace, and displays the pick of the Royal Family’s art collection.
It includes works by De Vinci and Canaletto, as well as fine chinas, porcelains and Fabergé eggs.
History of the Queen’s Gallery
The Queen’s art gallery started out as a chapel designed by John Nash in 1843. But the building that we see today is surprisingly modern, having been built as late as the 1960s.
It was redeveloped from the chapel’s bombed-out husk – the remains of which were caused during the Blitz.
