Subject to numerous development works, Clarence House has retained all its British charm over the centuries. A real cozy nest occupied by Charles and Camilla who have given themselves a mission: not to touch any of its works of art or its furniture.

Home of the royal family for two centuries according to the Royal UK website, Clarence House was notably the London residence of the Queen Mother (real name Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon) from 1953 to 2002 then that of Queen Elizabeth II and the prince Philip after their marriage in 1947.

Modified according to the tastes of the different members of the royal family, it has nevertheless retained the same spirit over the years. That ofa warm and family home. The main rooms of the house – living room, dining room, kitchen and bedrooms – were used by King Charles and Queen Camilla, when they were still Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, for receptions and other official events but also to receive visitors to the United Kingdom.

The layout of the rooms and the decoration remain as they were during the time of Queen Elizabeth II, the works of art and the furniture remain in their place. Nothing has been modified by Charles III who seems to want to keep an atmosphere which reminds him of his late mother who died on September 8, 2022.

However, Clarence House has undergone extensive renovation and redecoration by the time King Charles and his wife Camilla moved in. As a result, paintings were changed in most rooms, new textiles were introduced, and several new pieces from the royal collection and Charles’s art collection were added.

In addition to the photographs available in our slideshow where you can discover many images of Clarence House during official events, the Australian magazine Women’s Weeklyrelayed by the site Nobility and Royalties shared numerous photographs of the interior. As a reminder, these photos were taken in the ground floor apartments which are open to the public every summer. There is no doubt that the decorative spirit of private parties is essentially the same!
