After Friday’s Royal Wedding ceremony, you’re probably wondering where the handsome Prince William will whisk away his beautiful bride Kate for their fairytale ever after. They do have a place lined up. Clarence House will serve as the the couple’s $76.68 million “starter home.”
Clarence House has been in the royal family real estate portfolio for decades. From 1953 to 2002, the four-story mansion was home to the Queen Mother and home to Queen Elizabeth until her coronation. It now serves as the official residence of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, as well as home to princes William and Harry.
The royal home was designed by John Nash and built in 1825. After the death of the Queen Mother in 2003, the house underwent an extensive renovation, where most of the rooms were redecorated by interior designer Robert Kime.
The decor does have a distinct Victorian style, but that’s to be expected from a place that was Queen Victoria’s house. Can’t wait to see what Kate does with it!
