Google Maps has made a heartwrenching change following the Queen’s death

SADDENED Google Maps fans have noticed that a much-loved feature has been removed following the death of the Queen.

The service has long had a specialEaster Eggwhenever you switch on Street View.

'PegMa'am' was introduced in 2015

As many will know, you have to drop the so-calledPegmanwhenever you want to explore at street level.

For years, whenever you hovered it around Buckingham-paleis, the figure would transform into royal dress and sport a crown, to resemble Elizabeth II.

It was dubbed by the tech giant asPegMa’am”.

But no more.

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

Internet sleuths on Reddit noticed it no longer appears.

The Queen-like figure would also come up around Windsor Castle en Balmoral Castle.

But those just show the generic Pegman now as well.

Google first introducedPegMa’am” in 2015, to celebrate the Queen becoming the longest reigning monarch in the UK.

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

If you look over Loch Ness it changes into a mysterious green monster.

And if you check over eerie Gebied 51, the character becomes a UFO.
