Today, April 12, is the Duke of Edinburgh’s President’s Council Forum to be held at Marlborough House, Pall Mall, London.
Marlborough House is almost 300 years old and has the status of a Royal Palace. It has been occupied over the years by some five Dukes and Duchesses of Marlborough, three Dowager Queens of the United Kingdom, three Princes of Wales who later became Kings of the United Kingdom and Prince Leopold, who became King of the Belgians.
Sir Christopher Wren, the Surveyor of the Queen’s Work was commissioned in 1709 to draw up the plans for Marlborough House, which was completed in 1711.
Marlborough House is today the home of the Commonwealth Secretariat.
