Queen Mother's home opened up

Royal fans have a rare chance to see some of the artworks and furnishings of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Her former home, Clarence House, has been opened to the public until the end of August.

Despite being the official London residence of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, the rooms which are open to the public remain similar in appearance to how they were in her day.

For almost 50 years, until her death in 2002, the Queen Mother lived at the central London mansion built in the 1820s from designs by celebrated architect John Nash for George III's third son, the Duke of Clarence.

Clarence House will be open to the public until August 31, with adult tickets costing £10.
