Buckingham Palace---The Official Principal Residence of the British Monarchf. Originally a country house of the Duke of Buckingham, King George Y remodeled it into a palace in 1825. In front stands Queen Victoria Memorial topped by gilded Victory. The Palace is open to the public each summer.

From Trafalgar Square we walked to Buckingham Palace, getting through Admiral Arch and walking along Pall Mall. I saw ahead many people making a long row. I asked one of them wherefore they made the row. He said they were looking for the admission tickets to enter into the Palace.

The row was so long that it should take a long time to satiffy their purposes.
