Kensington Palace is an official Royal Residence set in Kensington Gardens in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London. It has been an official Royal Residence since the 17th Century and was the childhood home of Queen Victoria, the home of Princess Diana from the time of her marriage to Prince Charles to her death, and the official residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Wills and Kate!) and Prince Harry.

The names on this bench made me think of another book I loved as a child; Bimbo and Topsy, a story about a kitten and a puppy by author Enid Blyton.
I saw this umbrella stuck in the tree and looked around thinking Mary Poppins must have crash-landed somewhere close by.
This statue with the cuddling bears was so cute! It had a plaque that said it had been donated by the Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association. Not sure what the significance of the bears was though.
