In case you’ve somehow managed to avoid every single news outlet this week, let us fill you in: Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting a royal baby. (Say it with us: squee!) All this chatter has put us in a London state of mind. Here are a few things we love about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s hometown:
- With a population of 12 million, London is the largest city in Europe.
- Buckingham Palace has 775 rooms (including 78 bathrooms!), and more than 50,000 people visit each year.
- London was not the first capital of England. That honor goes to the city of Winchester, which had the title from 827 to 1066.
- London Heathrow Airport is the world’s busiest airport for international passenger traffic, and the third for total traffic.
