Decanting The East Wing | Reservicing Buckingham Palace

Watch the work being done to remove around 3,000 Royal Collection items out of the East Wing of Buckingham Palace, to allow for essential reservicing works to take place. Find out more here: The Reservicing programme will improve visitor access and make the Palace more energy efficient. Designed by Edward Blore in the 1840s, the East Wing of Buckingham Palace was built for Queen Victoria to provide more entertaining and living space for her expanding family. Blore’s design included the famous central balcony on the front façade of the Palace, which was incorporated at Prince Albert’s suggestion. Since then it has been used on many national occasions, including annually at Trooping the Colour. Follow The Royal Family on social: Twitter: Instagram: Facebook:
