Take a virtual trip through Prince Charles’ luxury residence in honor of his 70th birthday
People can now take a glimpse of Prince Charles’ home, the Clarence House, thanks to Google. The virtual trip is in celebration of his 70th birthday.
Royal fans would be able to take a virtual tour and see the luxurious residence of the Prince of Wales, as well as the gardens.
It took Prince Charles almost four decades to create his official London residence’s green spaces. The property is very special to him, and he would like to share it with the people with the help of Google’s Art and Culture department.

Google made use of photos and videos, including rare ones, high-resolution shots of artwork, and 360-degree imagery to make it as realistic as possible for the viewers.
The team was adamant in making sure that by the end of the virtual trip, the public would be able to understand how passionate Prince Charles is for art and heritage.
Suhair Khan from Google UK’s arts and culture department spoke to Standard UK about Prince Charles’ London home.
She said, "Now using 360-degree imagery anyone can stroll down the halls, explore the art collection, go from one room to another and really come up close with a lot of the artworks."
His communications secretary, Julian Payne, said that Prince Charles had been hands-on with the project and had been keeping a “close eye.”
When William passed away, many generations of royals chose to live at the Clarence House, including the Queen Mother. It was said to be her most favorite residence.
