7.53am update: Kensington Palace under review for links to slave trade
Lucy Worsley, a television historian, is leading an investigation into royal residences and their links to Britain’s historical slave trade.
One of many iconic buildings under the inquest is the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s London home, Kensington Palace.
Other buildings under review include the Tower of London and Hampton Court.
The BBC documentarian’s new inquest was prompted by the Black Lives Matter movement, and follows a National Trust report on Britain’s historical links to the slave trade.
Their report suggested a third of its properties were linked to money generated by the trade between the 17th century and the Slave Trade Act 1807.
