London, 2015: The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is an inner London borough of Royal borough status.
As the smallest borough in London and the second smallest district in England, 
this urban area is one of the most densely populated in the United Kingdom.

The borough contains major museums and universities in Albertopolis, 
department stores such as Harrods, Peter Jones and Harvey Nichols, 
and embassies in Belgravia, Knightsbridge and Kensington Gardens. 
It is home to the Notting Hill Carnival, Europe's largest. 
It contains many of the most expensive residential districts in London and even in the world, 
as well as districts with high levels of social housing and poverty.

The borough's motto is Quam Bonum in Unum Habitare, 
which can be roughly translated as 'How good to dwell in unity'.
