News and commentary about the reigning royal houses of the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands, Spain, Monaco -- and the former European monarchies as well.
Hever Castle in Kent (Anne Boleyn's childhood home) was on my must see list for some time. My friend Katrina and I visited the castle when I was in the UK earlier this month. Of course, it rained, on and off. The house and estate were restored by the American-born William Waldorf Astor, 1st Viscount Astor. Since 1983, the property has been owned by Broadland Properties Ltd.
The rose garden is absolutely breathtaking. So happy that I could check Hever off my bucket list.
