The name ‘mews’ came about at the Charring Cross at the south of Trafalgar Square sometime in the 13th century. Mews denotes stable, carriage house, and the recent times garage. The mews of the Royal family has been in two sites in London, the initial one being at the Charring Cross and since 1820s at the Buckingham Palace. The first Royals mews have been referred to as the King’s Mews, the Royal Stables or the Queen’s mews if a woman was on the throne.
The current Royal Mews is at the Buckingham Palace where King George III moved some of the horses and carriages for his wife’s use, eventually when his son, George IV made Buckingham Palace as the Royal official residence, the entire mews was moved to Buckingham Palace and the Charring Cross was destroyed and Trafalgar Square was built on it. The Royal Mews at the Buckingham Palace is open to public and one can view state coaches, other carriages, 30 horses and other counterparts. The chauffeurs, coachmen and other staff are accommodated above the stables in the quarters especially built for them. John Nash is yet again the famous architect who designed and built the Royal mews just as he did build many other ancient Royal sites in Britain.
