Crowned jointly in 1689, Protestant monarchs William and Mary oversaw important moves towards parliamentary democracy. 

The King and Queen also transformed Kensington Palace, through the employment of architect Sir Christopher Wren, into a suitable royal residence, featuring a suite of State Apartments where they could hold audiences and ceremonies.

Join Professor Kate Williams in the Kensington Palace Pavilion as she discusses the lives of this fascinating royal couple.
