Palace to glow softly in the dark


LONDON • Buckingham Palace announced this week that for the rest of the Queen’s reign, the façade of the 80year- old monarch’s official London residence will be illuminate­d nightly from sundown until 11 p. m.

At dusk, a soft glow of white light outlines the building’s portico columns and details of its grey stone exterior.

The 59 energy- efficient lights cost an estimated $ 70,000 U. S.
