21 May - 20 August 2010. Kensington Palace's rich history is celebrated with an unusual exhibition which highlights the glamour, love life and tragedy of its seven most famous princess inhabitants: Mary, Anne, Caroline, Charlotte, Victoria, Margaret and Diana. In 1694 Mary II died of small pox here, Queen Victoria was born here in 1819 and met her husband Albert here when she was 17. It was here that Princess Margaret held her wild parties during the Swinging 60s, here that Princess Diana resided before she died in 1997. Designers use each room, and the inhabitant with which it is most famously associated, as inspiration for their installations. The artists include Vivienne Westwood, Stephen Jones, Brian Kirkby, Zowie Broach and William Temples.

21 May, 18 June, 16 July & 20 August: 18.00-21.00 (Last entry: 20.00)
