Georgian etiquette at the Palace

Georgian hatsSunny spells are forcast this weekend as Kensington Palace’s Glorious Georges Family Festival brings the courts of George I, II and III into the gardens. There will be a royal study, lavish dining room and powder room ready for youngsters to get their mits on. It is all designed with ankle-biters in mind, so there will be family games and lunch with the king (you have to bring a picnic for that bit). Children can learn how to become the perfect courtier with the Masters of Etiquette in the Powder Room … steady on. And they can learn how to bow and swordfight before making a Georgian hat (pic) to wear for an audience with the monarch. There will also be a pop-up Parliament, where they’ll be discussing (more like shouting about) some of the important issues of the Georgian age, and canvassing for your vote. Perfect Saturday for small people taming. 28-29 June, Kensington PalaceUnder-16s free, adults pay £15.40 buy tickets here KensingtonPalace
