Because the palace was the home of the Ducal House Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (previously Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld), many royal occasions happened here. In 1860 Queen Victoria (whose mother and husband grew up here) met Austrian Emperor Franz Josef for the first time in the Giant's Hall (a sign marks the occasion).
In 1894 a royal wedding in Coburg brought together Queen Victoria, her son the future King Edward VII, her grandson King George V, her daughter, the Empress Friedrich, her other grandson Kaiser Wilhelm II, her other grandson future Tsar Nicholas II of Russia (with her granddaughter, future Tsarina Alexandra), and many other royalty from England, Greece, Belgium, Romania, Portugal and elsewhere.
The palace is used as a museum today.
