Buckingham Palace opens gardens for picnics and walks for first time ever

If you've ever fancied dining with The Queen, they you're not one step closer.

That's because Buckingham Palace has opened its garden to the public, allowing visitors to enjoy walks and have a picnic on the grounds for the first time ever.

In what is labelled as a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity”, you can now bring food, blankets, and lawn chairs for a daytime picnic with views of the Palace.

Visitors can also take a private walk around the garden, which is usually closed to the public.

Before, visitors could only access the garden via guided tours.

You will be able to walk the grounds and discover the Herbaceous Border, Horse Chestnut Avenue, the Plane trees planted by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, and the lake with its island that is home to the Buckingham Palace bees.

However, you'll have to be quick as the garden is only open this summer – between July 9 and September 19.

You should also note that there are some rules to ensure the grounds stay in order.

Although picnics are allowed – you can bring your own food or buy refreshments there – barbecues, ball games, and alcohol are forbidden.

According to reports, Buckingham Palace could also soon have new residents – The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

It's claimed Prince William may break royal code and move into there, according to a royal expert.

The List commentator Christine-Marie Liawg Dixon said: "The family could actually move to Buckingham Palace before William becomes king.

"His father, Prince Charles, is reportedly planning on staying at his residence, Clarence House, when he becomes king."
