Las cosas de palacio van despacio
 
In English?

It means that beurocratic or important things always take their time.

En otro foro nos dan varias opciones, unas que me parecen bastante decentes son estas:
"The wheels of bureaucracy turn slowly"
"The mills of God grind slowly"
"It all takes time"
"The wheels of Justice grind ever so slowly"
"Rome was not built in a day".
Hope these help... :)

En inglés no existe un dicho igual, aunque JPablo le diste unas proximaciones. Quisiera añadir dos más.

Things need to go through a lot of bureaucratic red tape before anything can get done.

.....bureaucratic mumbo jumbo before anything a get done.

One thing though:

Bureaucracy does not mean important.
