A few days ago I saw photos (in the Daily Mail) of a party Charles and Camilla hosted at Clarence House. Does it have a ballroom or is it large enough to entertain large numbers of guests? It's connected to St James' Palace, correct? Could they use the ballroom there (if there is one)? Thanks.


Update: I see now where there was a reception at Clarence House followed by a banquet at Lancaster House.

Did Prince Charles keep any of the paintings in Clarence House his grandmother The Queen Mother had placed when she resided there?

Clarence House does not have a large ballroom, in fact I believe most of its rooms are relatively small by royal standards but a series of rooms can be opened through opening up all the adjoining doors.

That said, Clarence House is joined to St James' Palace which has a series of State rooms in the State Apartments which can be used for entertaining. In addition, Lancaster House is located just over the road and is a large house with plenty of large rooms for entertaining.It is owned by the government and used for official entertaining, summits etc. So while CH may not have lots of large space it is close by to plenty of places that do.

There's nothing more calming or relaxing than a tranquil garden to calm the soul. Especially in busy London.
Better homes and garden show on our tv showed with special permission the lovely garden at the rear of No 10 Downing street. A lovely big area to relax the PM and good entertaining areas.

I remember reading some of Queen Marie of Romania's autobiography where she says growing up at Clarence House in the 1880's, if a little princess fell over wearing a white dress it was covered in black soot.
The pollution in London was that bad back then.

Interesting that the CC makes no mention of a banquet at Lancaster House after the Reception. Charles had a dinner at Buckingham Palace after the reception for the Elephant charity.

Where did you get information about a banquet at Lancaster House?

I suspect a majority of the art from the time of the Queen Mother is still at Clarence House.

I know I read it in the Daily Mail but now the article seems to have disappeared. The video is still there but not the article. Oh well.

Did The Queen Mother purchase paintings from only British painters?

"The arrangement of the rooms and the grouping of their contents remain recognisably as they were in Queen Elizabeth's time, with much of Her Majesty's collection of works of art and furniture in their former positions."

Mainly British painters but she did buy a Monet (not on display).
