In the first snap, Camilla could be seen chatting with guests with a pastel blue patterned rug underfoot and matching curtains in the background. The traditional fireplace, which is the focal point of the room, was just visible to the left while two chairs offered seating for the attendees. The space was finished with gold accents, including framed pictures hanging from the picture rails and several lamps.

The beautiful gold theme continued into the hallway, which boasts very regal decor including red carpets and a striped seat with a gilded mirror positioned on the wall above it. More framed pictures could be seen in the reflection. 

The Morning Room is also decorated with Prince Charles' grandmother the Queen Mother's personal items, such as her collection of Royal Anchor Chelsea porcelain, paintings and portraits.

The Duchess gave fans a better look inside the space during her virtual appearances over the past few months when she has sat at a wooden desk in front of the fireplace.


The Morning Room in Clarence House

Clarence House is the royal couple's primary residence, but it was previously home to the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, and the Queen Mother.

It is steeped in history, with the Queen giving birth to Princess Anne at the property in 1950 before moving into Buckingham Palace, the Queen Mother using the library for intimate dinners when she lived in the house from 1953 until 2002, and Princess Margaret living in two rooms that now make up the Garden Room before she got married.

Prince Charles carried out extensive renovation work before he moved into Clarence House, but has kept many of the rooms just as they were when his grandmother lived there.
