The Buckingham Palace Ballroom is the epitome of royal living. Take the most lavish wedding ceremony you can imagine and times that by 100, and that is what being in this staggering room feels like.

Equipped with six massive chandeliers, golden trim, and a rich velvet carpet, this space is an architectural masterpiece from floor to ceiling. Below an ornate archway rests two magnificent thrones, but don’t be confused; this isn’t even the throne room.
