For Prince Charles' 70th birthday, Clarence House did something unprecedented. They permanently opened up the home he shares with wife Camilla Parker Bowles to the public. Not literally - but virtually.
Now, thanks to the help of Google technology, you can take a 3D virtual tour of the palace.
Charles and Camilla have lived in Clarence House since 2003. Before that, it was home to The Queen Mother who lived there for 50 years. And before The Queen Mother, Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip called it home between 1949 and 1952. Charles spent the first part of his childhood there, before the family moved into Buckingham Palace when Elizabeth became Queen.
Clarence House is situated on The Mall in London next to St James's Palace. It was built between 1825 and 1827 for The Duke of Clarence (later King William IV) and his wife Adelaide. It sustained damage during WWII bombing raids and underwent extensive repairs before Princess Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh moved in.
One other notable resident was Princess Diana, who moved in to Clarence House before her engagement to Prince Charles was announced. She lived there until they married in 1981.
The home is opened up to the public in August each year, where visitors can be given a guided tour of the five rooms and adjoining spaces on the ground floor.
But now, thanks to the magic of Google 3D technology, you can take a tour from your living room.
