Historic Royal Palaces, Inc. was formed by Americans with a passion for iconic royal buildings, namely the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland.
Over hundreds of years the palaces have survived war, revolt and royal scandal as well as seeing great periods of prosperity, peace and enlightenment. These events and stories help us understand our own place in time and how, by learning from the past, we can help shape a better future.
Historic Royal Palaces Inc. is a tax exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
The American Patrons of Historic Royal Palaces Inc play a vital role in keeping the palaces alive to delight and inspire the generations of the future.More about becoming a Patron
