The Fake Buckingham Palaces that Queen Victoria Envy in Real Life.
In a TV series about Queen Elizabeth’s life, Buckingham Palace is without a doubt one of the locations most recreated in the show. Filming inside the real palace was out of the question, the scouting team chose Lancaster House, a mansion in central London, to set many of the scenes in the Palace. No great alteration had to be done in order to transform its interiors into a royal residency. In fact, its decoration is so extravagantly luxurious that it is said that Queen Victoria herself once said to the owner in the 19th century: “I have come from my House to your Palace.”
Another building that doubled as Buckingham Palace in the show was Goldsmiths’ Hall. In this historical building also in central London they filmed the iconic scene when Princess Diana roller-skating though the Palace listening to music. As well as the scene with Diana getting ready for her wedding day.
