^ That's not a presidential palace. Hong Kong doesn't even have a president. It's the Chief Executive's residence.

Not every country would have a president. Constitutional monarchies can have a Prime Minister instead. Even presidents don't necessarily have a palace, but referred to merely as a residence. I don't even think the White House is considered a palace, but rather a residence.
