I went to the Royal Childhood exhibition at Buckingham Palace yesterday. The ticket was expensive as it was part of the Staterooms tour. I decided to go with it and it’s worth every penny. The highlight was seeing the footage of the Queen’s childhood. I’m sure you’ve ever seen some of it before. I did not expect it so imagine me trying NOT to squee in public!
