For nearly two centuries, Clarence House has been home to senior members of the British royal family. Nowadays, the house is known as the London home of Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, but the residence has a fascinating history of its own, and has undergone many a reinvention over the years.
Here, what you should know about Clarence House.
The residence was designed by John Nash next to St. James’s Palace as a home for King George III’s son—then Prince William Henry, Duke of Clarence, soon to be King William IV—in the 19th century. The three-story stuccoed mansion was luxurious, to be sure, but far less resplendent than Nash’s work on Buckingham Palace.
Prince William and Kate might still be in Norfolk, but their London home is set to reopen to the public later this month, giving fans the chance to take a peek around their main residence.
William and Kate, both 38, chose to spend lockdown in Anmer Hall, their home in Norfolk, with their children Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte.
Kensington Palace has long been associated with younger royals, and it’s where William and Kate have their main residence.
Prince Harry used to live there too, and Meghan Markle moved in with him there before they married and moved to Windsor.
Along with other palaces, Kensington Palace closed when the country went into lockdown in March.
But Historic Royal Palaces announced on Thursday that it would be reopening the West London home on 30 July.
