St James’s Palace has played host to the most important royal events in the last 300 years. St James’s Palace: Secrets Of The Royal HQ reveals the hidden stories of this beating heart of the monarchy.

Today, it is home to Princess Anne and Princess Alexandra and, since making some of its apartments available for rent, it's also been a London pad for Hollywood star, Catherine Zeta Jones.

The film also explores the Palace’s incredible history: the setting of Charles III's ground-breaking Accession council and a poignant place of rest for Princess Diana after her death; the scene of William and Camilla's first meeting: where the late Queen had sittings for controversial artist, Lucien Freud; from its early beginnings as Henry VIII’s isolated rural retreat to the real reason this residence became a royal rental.

Packed full of incredible insight from those who know these palaces inside out, glorious archive and 3D modelling.
