Google Maps Removes Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace Blurred Out

Google has responded to a request from the Queen of England and removed Buckingham Palace from Google Maps. With a planned royal wedding at the end of this month the royal family has been concerned about guests turning up uninvited.

Therefore, to make things more difficult for gatecrashers, Google has agreed to blur Buckingham Palace in the satellite view on Google Maps.

Google has also captured Paris' latest sinkhole in this new release of satellite imagery. Since the Eiffel Tower collapsed into the catacombs last month the old imagery did look a bit dated.
