Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of Queen Elizabeth II, glistens Tuesday evening on what is forecast to be England’s coldest night of the year.   Dense fog has canceled many flights as freezing fog blankets southeast England. Temperatures in the United Kingdom are forecast to fall to the low 20’s (F) overnight, and will struggle to get above freezing the next several days, according to weather advisories. Located in Westminster, Buckingham Palace dates to 1703 when a large townhouse was built on this site for  the Duke of Buckingham and Normandy. Queen Elizabeth serves as the Head of State of the constitutional monarchy of the United Kingdom and 15 other Commonwealth realms, having reigned as Queen since 1952, following the death of her father, King George VI.  Her Majesty the Queen also serves as Supreme Governor of the Church of England.
