The UK's Prince Charles has been called upon to block the proposed new Iranian Embassy to be built next to a church in South Kensington in London.

Residents and conservationists are opposing the multimillion-pound futuristic scheme, which is set among Victorian mansion blocks.

Designed by Vienna-based practice Daneshgar Architects, the plans involve construction of an embassy and an Islamic cultural centre.

The five-storey rhomboid-shaped building will be clad in marble and stone and located on the corner of a car park, which is owned by the Iranian Government.

Residents have started a campaign to stop the embassy development, according to telegraph.co.uk.

A decision on the proposal will be announced later this year.
