St James’s Palace | Tourope

As we are heading to Buckingham Palace it would be a good idea to stop by St James’s palace for 15 minutes. Maybe it’s not directly related to The Crown but this palace is one of the most important palaces in the city. It was intended as a residence for Queen Anne Boleyn, King Henry VIII’s second wife and the mother of Queen Elizabeth I.

Anne Boleyn was executed by beheading within the confines of the Tower of London and her untimely death meant she never saw the completion of St James’s Palace. She’d been queen for just three years.
