royal borough in inner London, part of the historic county of Middlesex, on the north bank of the River Thames west of the City of Westminster. The borough of Kensington and Chelsea forms part of London's fashionable West End district; it is predominantly residential in character and includes a royal palace and the embassies of several nations. It was established in 1965 by the amalgamation of the borough of Chelsea with the royal metropolitan borough of Kensington, whose royal charter had been granted in 1901. It includes such areas as North Kensington, Notting Hill, Kensington, Knightsbridge (in part), Brompton, Earl's Court, West Brompton, and Chelsea.
