In an introductory clip, the Queen’s Guard played the This Morning theme song on musical instruments before Holly and Phillip arrived on the Palace grounds in a taxi.

When they stopped in front of the Palace, Phillip said, “Well, we’ve done a lot of entrances in our time, but this has got to be the most special.”

While Holly added: “This is ridiculous, when you think of the people who have driven vehicles up to this grand entrance.”

Holly said that decades of presidents and prime ministers had been in the same place as them, before Phillip joked that they probably hadn’t arrived in a taxi.

As Holly got out of the car, she cheerfully said that she felt she should bow before the pair walked through the Palace’s grand entrance.

As they stood in a large hallway, Holly explained what would be happening during the segment, saying, “We’re going to explore the incredible halls of the Palace, as well as the gardens and kitchens.”

Phillip then asked the camera to pan around the room to show the lavish fireplace and a ‘beautiful’ grand staircase, with Holly jokingly asking if that’s where ‘Cinderella’s shoe fell off’.

During the show, the hosts interviewed Eurovision’s Sam Ryder and looked back on the Queen’s 70-year reign with Gyles Brandreth while Gok Wan gave a tour of the Picture Gallery.

As Holly joked that they had been given the keys, Phillip said, ‘It’s like special permission! Royal house, the Queen has to be on the other side of this and say ‘yes, they can come into my house’.

He then got out of the taxi and showed off the grand exterior of Buckingham Palace and revealed that viewers would be given a glimpse of the picture gallery, gardens and kitchens.
