Hi! I am a HUGE royal watcher and I'm coming to London this summer. Hopefully I'll be there for the birth of the baby, but either way, I still want to know what I should see that's related to Royalty. Thank you!
Clearly you and I were separated at birth. No human being alive is more obsessed with the Royals than I am. I could make this list a lot, lot longer, but I don't want to freak you out. I'm just trying to give you the Cliff Notes version of some of the big spots to hit.
In addition to these, you'll want to make sure you hit all the major department stores--I can pretty much promise you they'll have displays in the windows for the baby, especially Harrods. For the Jubilee last year they gave every customer a flag (I framed mine). The store windows are some of the best (free) ways to get your royal fix.
Buckingham Palace–OK, this is a little obvious, but I thought I’d mention it. It’s about $30 to see it and it’s a lot of fun. Only open in the summer when the Queen is in Balmoral.
If you check the royal website, you can find out where members of the royal family are going to be and when. Here’s the link: http://www.royal.gov.uk/LatestNewsandDiary/Royaldiary/Locationsandtimes.aspx
Sloane Street/Kings Road –Kate is notorious for popping in to the shops here, especially Whistles and Jigsaw (she used to work for them). If you’re going to catch her in a candid moment, it’ll probably happen here.
Mentioned in this answer:
Although it is a bit outside the city, Windsor Castle is a great place to visit. It is absolutely beautiful and, if the flag is up, it means the queen is there!
