It’s about to be a memorable summer for the Royal Family’s biggest fans! Her Majesty is opening the doors to her London home for a limited time, allowing access to some of Buckingham Palace’s most beautiful rooms
From July 20 to Sept. 29, the public will be allowed access to the exquisite White Drawing Room, described as “perhaps the grandest of all the State Rooms in Buckingham Palace.”
Photos taken from inside the stunning space were shared on the Royal Collection Trust’s official Instagram account. The images show off the room’s ornate white-and-gold walls, the classic red carpeting, a portrait of Queen Victoria, hanging chandeliers, fresh blooms and more.

The White Drawing Room, perhaps the grandest of all the State Rooms in #BuckinghamPalace, serves as a royal reception room for The Queen & members of the Royal Family to gather before official occasions. This is one of the 19 State Rooms open to the public from 20 July - 29 September 2019. #palace #royal #thequeen #london #thingstodoinlondon #thingstodo #summeratthepalace
The White Drawing Room is used primarily as a place for the Queen to hold audiences, but it’s also the place where she meets important guests before mingling in a larger State Room. The space is likely most recognizable from the Queen’s Christmas Day broadcasts.
But a secret entrance used by Her Majesty is easily the most amazing feature! It’s hidden behind a mirror and cabinet.
Windsor Castle and Sandringham Estate also have their own White Drawing Rooms. The adorable official portraits from Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding day were taken at the White Drawing Room in Windsor Castle. Members of the family gather in the one at Sandringham for Christmas Eve fun, snacks and tea!
