The tour of Buckingham Palace will take place over three days starting Thursday and running through April 12.

The royal family is spending the next four days in the Palace of Westminster in central London.

They will also have lunch at Buckingham Palace and the White House, and then go on a visit to Buckingham Palace itself.

There will be a total of eight stops, starting at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday and continuing through the end of the week.

In addition to the Palace tour, the royal families will visit the grounds of the Bewdley Palace, where Queen Elizabeth II will have her private office, as well as a memorial to Princess Diana at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

The visit will also be followed by a private meeting of the British Sovereigns and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Windsor Castle in Windsor.

The tours, which begin Thursday, will also include stops in Westminster Abbey, the Eiffel Tower and the Palace gardens, and include the return to the Royal Collection at Buckingham Hall, where they will be joined by the royal guest.

The royals will also travel to Buckinghamshire for the annual Easter Ball on March 4.

The Queen and her family will be accompanied by the Duke of Cambridge, Duke of York and Prince Harry for the event.

Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip and the Duchess of Cornwall will be also at the Ball, and the royals are expected to have lunch with the public and attend an event hosted by the British Library.

The tour will also see the Queen, Duke and Prince Philip take part in a visit of the National Gallery in London, the Queen at a public opening of a new exhibition at Buckingham House, a royal visit to the National Trust Museum in Norwich, and an informal meeting with senior government officials.

The Buckingham Palace tour is part of a royal family-led tour that includes a visit by the Prince of Wales, the Duke & Duchess of Sussex, the Duchess and Prince George, the Prince and Princess of Wales and Princess Charlotte.
