Travelling with a baby

Kensington Palace with kids

The Historic Royal Palaces enchanted us all with more festivities this December. And part of our Xmas celebrations, we spent a couple of hours at Kensington Palace, a favourite spot of ours: parents usually for glamorous social events and kids for running around the gorgeous gardens.

It was the first time we took the monkeys inside for visiting  – the eldest has been insisting many times and adamant he’ll put up with me contemplating beautiful dresses and reading about Victorian habits Christmas time.

The baby has been the most curious and patient, the royal surroundings, the lights, golden chandeliers and rich textures kept him amused for over an hour. The 3 years old loved the Christmas decorations: the little houses, cool illuminated posters, the smells of oranges, cinnamon and Xmas trees, the royal pillows. I loved the dress collection though as I anticipated, I had to drag my 3 years old around with bribery and threats.

We all also loved listening to Victorian carols sitting in the Queens State glamorous ballroom by the fireplace. The Prince Regent’s Band brings the Palace a different dimension and facilitates our imagination travelling back in time – it’s all very festive and authentic.

We all also loved the Family room and spent over 30 minutes in here: the boys playing with lovely restored Victorian toys: trains, cars, dolls, bunnies and little horses to be pulled. Me, delighting myself with staring at little outfits from 200 years ago and smiling at the good old habits.

Few paintings of gorgeous Royal children, mostly boys dressed in exquisite little dresses.  So if you ever catch me dressing my boys up in anything like that, blame it on royal vicinity and time travelling 😉
