Have you ever wondered how many properties the royal family own? It can be hard to keep track. But, from Buckingham Palace to Clarence House, this new infographic below by Quid Corner pinpoints every royal residence in the UK, from Scotland to Ireland and England.

See how many you have visited and learn about when each of the properties were purchased...

1. Balmoral Castle
Set in Scotland, Prince Albert bought this property for Queen Victoria in 1852. It's a place where the Royals still escape to each summer on holiday. Boasting baronial-style features such as turrets and dormer windows, it really is like something out of a fairy tale book.

2. Buckingham Palace
Perhaps the most famous of all, Buckingham Palace is the London residence and official administrative seat of the monarch of the United Kingdom. It's also where the Queen gave birth to Prince Charles and Prince Andrew.

3. Craigowan Lodge
Just a stone's throw from Balmoral Castle, this seven-bedroom stone house was once a firm favourite of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Today, however, it is mainly used to host visiting VIPs.

4. Hillsborough Castle
In the heart of Northern Ireland, this country house was built back in the 1770s. As well as four giant Ionic columns added by local architect Thomas Duff in the 1820s, it has incredibly breathtaking gardens.

5. The Palace of Holyroodhouse
Over in Scotland, Holyroodhouse was home to Mary Queen of Scots and now serves as the official residence of the monarchy in Scotland. If you pay a visit, you can still see the many ruins today.

6. Sandringham House
The Queen inherited private ownership of Sandringham from her father, King George VI, back in 1952.

7. Windsor Castle
Windsor Castle is the largest and longest-occupied castle in Europe, which was founded by William the Conquerer in the 11th century. The 1,000-room castle is a timeless blend of both Victorian and Georgian style.

8. Birkhall
Home to the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, Birkhall is a beautiful private residence in Scotland. Hidden in the gardens, you'll find the famous Wendy house which was built for Princess Elizabeth before she took the throne.

9. Clarence House
Today, Clarence House is the official London residence of Charles and Camilla, who have apartments on the second floor.

10. Highgrove House
Prince Charles first bought Highgrove House in 1980 and it now serves as his family home. The property is also close to the prince's Duchy Home Farm.

11. Llwynywermod
This beautiful property is Charles and Camilla's Welsh home, which they bought and refurbished in 2007. Previously, the home was owned by relatives of Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII.

12. Tamarisk House
This home on the Isle of Scilly also belongs to the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, where they often visit for a holiday. Most recently, they have opened it up for holidaymakers to rent.

13. Kensington Palace
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge live in this 20-bedroom property with their three young children. Back in 1689, King William III and Queen Mary bought the mansion for £20,000 and commissioned Sir Christopher Wren to expand it.

14. Amner Hall
Anmer Hall was a wedding gift to William and Kate from the Queen, which now serves as the Cambridges' country home. It is part of the Queen's Sandringham Estate, and is where the Cambridges spend much of their time together.

15. Frogmore Cottage
Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex renovated this quaint cottage, officially moving in before the birth of their son Archie. The couple commissioned Soho House designer Vicky Charles to add a 1920s style to the interior.

16. Gatcombe Park
This Grade II listed property was purchased by the Queen as a wedding present for Princess Anne in 1976. Anne now lives there with her daughter, Zara Tindall.

17. St James' Palace
This is the official residence of Princess Anne and also contains the London residences of Princess Beatrice of York and Princess Alexandra. The interiors are remarkably striking, with a red brick exterior and four courtyards.

18. The Royal Lodge
Prince Andrew moved into this 30-room property back in 2004.

19. Bagshot Park
Home to the Earl and Countess of Wessex, this 120-room Tudor mansion was previously used as a hunting lodge. Before they moved in, Queen Victoria arranged the construction of the property for her son, Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught, in the 1870s.
