For those who follow London news, the words CLARENCE HOUSE are almost a daily part of our lives. At this moment, it is the residence of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (for a short time only), and the Prince Harry. For the last half of the 20th century, Clarence House was the residence of the beloved Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Prior to that, it was the residence of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh when Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, prior to the Duchess’s becoming Queen. The original Georgian house was built by Nash during the Regency and the official residence of William IV, when Duke of Clarence.
The house is open to the public during the same period as the Palace, during the summer. But tickets are limited to small groups and must be booked on the Royal Website long in advance. So, if you want to visit Clarence House for this summer, BOOK NOW.
