GOOGLE is offering a new virtual reality tour of Buckingham Palace so you can be guided around the Queen's residence from the comfort of your home. 

The Royal Collection Trust, the charity which manages the historic building, has teamed up with Google Expeditions to take users on a free ‘virtual field trip’ of the palace from anywhere in the world, simply by using their smart phone, from today.

And while the Queen hasn’t had the chance to try out the experience for herself as she is still in residence at Sandringham, it is understood that she is aware of the project and has given it her seal of approval.
