On top of the exciting announcements about next year’s exhibitions at the Queens Galleries in London and Edinburgh, the Royal Collection have just announced that the 2014 special exhibition at Buckingham Palace will be ‘Royal Childhood’, which ‘will reflect on the birth of HRH Prince George of Cambridge. Royal Childhood tells the story of life as a young member of the royal family at Buckingham Palace, and will include a range of current and historical objects from the Royal Collection and the private collections of the Royal Family.‘

How fabulous does that sound? I think it’s so lovely that next year’s exhibition space at Buckingham Palace has been inspired by Prince George. I wonder if the famous royal christening gown will be on display?
