A new virtual tour of Prince Charles London residence gives fans a rare glimpse into royal life

While royal life is often guarded by gates, guards, and secret traditions, Google is offering fans a rare glimpse into what it s like to be a royal. Google Arts Culture created a virtual tour of Prince Charles current residence, Clarence House, in London in honor of the future king s 70th birthday. Viewers can now virtually walk through the residence that has been in the Windsor family for over 100 years. Although the tour is only the ground floor of the house, it s an intimate look at the place that Queen Elizabeth herself once called home. Keep scrolling to get an insider look at the royal home and see how Prince Charles honors his royal family throughout his residence. Since 2003, Clarence House has been the official residence of Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. Clarence House was built in 1827 for The Duke of Clarence who would later become King William IV. From 1953 to 2002, the Queen Mother called the four-story house her home. For a short time, Queen Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh lived in the home after they were married in 1947. Today, it is the residence of Prince Charles.

Anyone who visits Clarence House is first greeted by the home s lavish gardens. Prince Charles designed the gardens himself in 2005 to honor the home s longest occupant, the Queen Mother.

The Entrance Hall to the home seems like a gallery of paintings and relics of the royal family. The Entrance Hall is decorated with portraits of King George VI and The Queen Mother, along with a famous tapestry called The Formal Garden. Although Prince Charles lives in the home, most of it has remained the way the Queen Mother designed it, including all of the artwork.
