Kensington and Chelsea first originated from Saxon settlements with both areas mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. Royalty first moved into the area in 1689 when William III moved into Kensington Palace. Queen Victoria was born in Kensington Palace in 1819 and continued to reside there until her accession to the throne in 1837. With Queen Victoria's wishes, the title "Royal Borough" was given to Kensington in 1901, after her death.

Modern day Kensington is one of the most densely populated parts of the UK. This is partly due to the high proportion of large terraced Georgian and Victorian houses that have been converted into flats. It is an extremely affluent area, and has some of the most expensive streets and garden squares in London, including Edwardes Square, Earls Terrace – an exclusive redevelopment of Georgian Houses, The Phillimores, and Wycombe Square – a new build development done to a very high standard. In early 2007, houses sold in Upper Phillimore Gardens for in excess of £20 million.
