AFTER 40 years of surreptitiously snapping pictures of the White House during public tours, people can now do it out in the open.

The White House has lifted its ban on taking photos during tours of the Presidential mansion.

Not only that, but it is now encouraging people to do so and to share the photos across social media using the #WhiteHouseTour hashtag.

“Big news! Starting today, we’re lifting the ban on cameras and photos on the White House public tour. Visitors are now able to take photos and keep those memories for a lifetime!” said First Lady Michelle Obama, in an Instagram post.
