The Georgian Kings Tour @ Kensington Palace
Who were the four "Georges" – the kings who gave their name to an age?
George I was a shy and socially awkward man - he wasn't thrilled to be the King of Britain and was frequently travelling back to his beloved native Hanover.
George II was a brave military man, but quick to anger - on occasion, he would tear off his wig and kick it around the room!
George III was a cultured, well-intentioned king, but his worsening mental illness cast a huge shadow over his later life.
George IV had a huge appetite that made him trying to disguise his expanding girth by pulling in his gut with a belt, and buttoning his excess flesh into tight fitting uniform jackets.
You will hear all these stories and other gossips from the Georgian court at the guided tour at Kensigton Palace.
After the tour we can wander around to see the rooms where Queen Victoria was born and raised and the grand lavish rooms of the King State Apartments, then head out for a lunch at Mercato Metropolitano in Mayfair.
