DESCRIPTION

Clarence House is famous as being the London home of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother for fifty years, from 1953 to 2002. Built by John Nash, it has been a royal residence for over 170 years. This stunning book tells the story of the house and its former occupants - from the Duke of Clarence, for whom it was built and who resided here as William IV from 1830 to 1837, to the present occupiers: The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry. It showcases the many treasures within, including works of art by Monet, Piper, Sickert and Augustus John, and the Queen Mother's personal collection of porcelain and silver.
