The Royal Collection
Much of the fine and decorative art on display across our palaces remains part of the Royal Collection, one of the largest and most important art collections in the world. The Royal Collection is held in trust by The Queen for her successors and the nation, and is housed in 13 royal residences and historic palaces across the UK.
Many artworks can be seen in the historic settings and royal apartments for which they were originally commissioned or acquired. Others are displayed in temporary exhibitions or in purpose-built galleries, including the Cumberland Art Gallery and Mantegna Gallery at Hampton Court Palace.
