'royal house' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both man-made objects as well as being singular nouns.
Perhaps there's a link between them I don't understand?

'labour reverse has lesson' is the wordplay.
'labour' becomes 'lab' (abbreviation).
'reverse' shows that the letters should be reversed in order.
'has' says to put letters next to each other.
'lesson' becomes 'moral' (synonyms).
'lab' backwards is 'bal'.
'bal'+'moral'='BALMORAL'

'for' is the link.
