“Oh to be making snowmen there! #fieldofdreams,” another fan cheered.

Another commented: “The most beautiful pics! Thank you for sharing them. What glorious snow scenes!”.

Although a rare sight, it isn’t the first time that Buckingham Palace has been covered in snow.

In 1817 London was hit by freezing snowy conditions that allowed Londoners the opportunity to go skating on the lake in St James Park.

According to a painting by Robert Havell, locals even set up tents and lit up campfires in front of the Palace which looked very different in those days.

During the freezing snowy winter of 1947 palace staff had to work by candlelight due to blackouts caused by an insufficient fuel supply.

It snowed for an incredibly 55 days that winter and conditions were so cold that Londoners were able once again to skate on the lake in St James Park in front of the Palace.
