A place of pilgrimage for fans of Diana Princess of Wales, Kensington Palace was her residence from 1984 until her death in 1997, although this has been a royal residence since the 17C. Of relatively modest proportions and possessed of a rural charm, the building has the richly decorated state apartments, reached by Wren's King's staircase, not to mention a remarkable collection of court dress.
