A ‘sunny, cheerful happy house’, Clarence House has served as the private London residence for members of the Royal Family since it was built in 1827, and it retains the welcoming feel of a much loved family home. Its distinctive atmosphere owes much to the late Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, who lived at Clarence House for 50 years. The works of art she collected throughout her life remain on display in the ground-floor rooms that are open to the public. Now the official London residence of TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, Clarence House continues to provide an intimate setting for family occasions. But this is also very much a working house. Each year Their Royal Highnesses welcome guests, from visiting heads of state to school children, and host a wide variety of receptions and meetings in support of charities and other organisations. With over 70 illustrations, this new souvenir provides a charming insight into the life of Clarence House.
