Just because someone is a member of the British Royal Family doesn’t mean they can’t have a career outside of their official duties. In fact, we just learned that one very prominent member of Queen Elizabeth’s fam is actually a trained architect, according to an official Tweet.
As it turns out, Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester, was a practicing architect and elected a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects during the 1970s, before starting work full-time for Her Majesty.
The 94-year-old monarch revealed the interesting fact on social media, in honor of World Architecture Day (October 5). To mark the occasion, the official Royal Family account shared Prince Richard’s three favorite buildings including the Maggie’s Center in Leeds, the Ely Cathedral in Cambridge and the Strawberry Hill House in England.
