Kent summerhouse in Buckingham Palace's Rose Garden

The summerhouse in Buckingham Palace gardens was built in 1740 during the reign of King George II and is attributed to William Kent. Among its features is a corgi dog made out of wicker in homage to Queen Elizabeth II. This was also where the Brownie pack, formed by King George VI to provide social fun for the young Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret, met for their activities.
