Rare look into Queen Elizabeth’s royal kitchen

Rare look into Queen Elizabeth’s royal kitchen

The Queen and Prince Philip’s kitchen inside Buckingham Palace has served as been at the helm of the world’s biggest royal events of all time.

The chef’s kitchen has catered from everything to royal weddings to birthday and not many few photographs have been shown over time.

The few images that have been released show baker Sophie Cabot preparing the wedding cake for Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank’s nuptials in October 2018.

Other photographs show that the expansive kitchen is perfect for cooking on a mass scale and is equipped with all the bits and bobs.

The kitchen also seems to be perfected with stainless-steel splash back panels behind each sink, as well as shelves positioned above, where endless amounts of ingredients and kitchenware is stored.

Copper saucepans that date back as far as King George IV's reign are stacked on racks in the kitchens, with sizes to suit every purpose.

Buckingham Palace has been used as the monarch's royal residence since Queen Victoria decided to renovate the previously vacant property in 1837.

The former Queen extended the property and added on touches that are still standing today.

This includes the famous balcony at the front, where royal family members often gather for occasions such as Trooping the Colour.

Inside, there is a total of 775 rooms, including 19 state rooms, 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 92 offices, 78 bathrooms and 188 bedrooms for household staff.
