    I think the most interesting royal roads are the ones at the top of Kensington that were developed after Queen Victoria Golden Jubilee in 1887. In addition to Jubilee Drive there are the following;-

    Empress Road (after her title of Empress of India)
    Albert Edward Road (after Prince Albert Edward, heir to the throne an later Edward VII)
    Renfew Road - after Albert Edwards title of Baron Renfrew
    Albany Road and Leopold Road - after Prince Leopold, duke of Albany
    Connaught Road - after Prince Arthur Duke of Connaught
    Saxony Road and Guelph Roads - after Victoria and Albert's Germanic connections
    Battenberg Street - Prince Henry of Battenberg, Victorias son in law
    Teck Street - Mary of Teck, who married Victoria's grandson

    Original houses on Kensington opposite Guelph place. A chapel has been added to the front garden of one of the houses - some extension!
