As many know, whenever you want to explore at street level, you have to drop the so-called “Pegman”.

For years, every time you floated her around Buckingham Palace, the character would change into a royal dress and wear a crown to resemble Elizabeth II.

It was dubbed “PegMa’am” by the tech giant.

But not anymore.

It seems Google has quietly removed the feature since the Queen’s death.

Internet sleuths on Reddit have noticed that it no longer appears.

The Queen-like figure also appeared around Windsor Castle and Balmoral Castle.

But these also only show the generic pegman now.

Google first launched “PegMa’am” in 2015 to celebrate the Queen becoming the longest reigning monarch in the United Kingdom.

There are only a handful of dedicated Pegman replacements on Street View.

As you gaze out over Loch Ness, it transforms into a mysterious green monster.

And if you check the eerie Area 51, the figure becomes a UFO.
