The Palace of Holyroodhouse was rebuilt in the 1670s by the Scottish architect Sir William Bruce, who retained the sixteenth-century north west tower and designed a matching tower to the south-west to give a symmetrical façade. Inside, the processional sequence of rooms was modelled on the those of the French court. Although Charles II never visited the Palace, the Duke and Duchess of York stayed there on three occasions.
