Kensington Palace's doors are once again open to the public, and the timing couldn't be more apt in this Jubilee year. Once home to Queen Victoria and the Princess of Wales, it will now be the residence of a new generation of royals. The rooms have been transformed into interactive experiences, showcasing work by contemporary installation artists alongside exhibits from the palace's collection.

The new permanent exhibition exploring the life of Queen Victoria has been inspired by her letters and journals with excerpts written on the walls and display cases. The exhibition shows more than 300 items, including childhood shoes, the wedding gown she wore to marry Prince Albert and the first mourning dress she took to after his death.
