BUFFALO, N.Y. – WNED-TV will air the documentary “The Queen’s Palaces” on Saturday, June 9 at 8 p.m. in celebration of the British monarch’s Diamond Jubilee.
“The Queen’s Palaces” is a landmark program celebrating three exceptional royal buildings and the treasures found within them, hosted by Antiques Roadshow’s Fiona Bruce. The Queen has three official residences - the best known, Buckingham Palace; the oldest, Windsor Castle; and the most romantic, Palace of Holyroodhouse. Among the few working royal palaces in the world today, they serve as both family homes and as the setting for the business of the Monarchy.
Each palace has its own distinctive story - long histories that reflect good and bad times, triumph and tragedy and, of course, the lives of some of our most memorable kings and queens. But they all share certain features - incredible collections of treasures that reflect both the tastes of their occupants and the artistic development of the nation, and architecture that has evolved across the centuries to meet the needs of different ages, reflecting the story of Britain and its people like no other buildings.
