According to reports, Prince Charles plans to live in an apartment in Buckingham Palace while the rest of the building is open to the public.
Balmoral will also be opened to the public while Prince William and his family move from Kensington Palace to Windsor Castle.
A source said the mail on Sunday that the discussion about the future of the palaces in the context of Karl’s plans to modernize the royal family is “on the to-do list”.
The source added, “Everyone realizes there is no point running so many residences, but if you give them up completely, you’ll never get them back when Prince George and the younger royals grow up and need a place to stay.”
Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are said to be among those in the royal family vying for accommodation in the remodel.
Prince Edward and Princess Anne are also said to be safe in Bagshot Park in Windsor and Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire.
Buckingham Palace is currently used as a royal residence and houses the Queen’s offices among its 775 rooms, as well as 52 royal and guest rooms, 188 staff rooms, 92 offices and 78 bathrooms.
The public can currently visit the State Rooms, Gardens, Precious Works of Art hanging from the hallways, and Her Majesty’s Throne Room on certain days.
According to new plans, access will be granted to the public all year round, while the monarch’s living quarters will be drastically reduced.
A friend of Charles said, “Despite what everyone thinks he doesn’t want to live there, he will surely have a place to stay there – but it will be a much more humble apartment-over-the-shop situation, similar to the one Prime Minister in Downing Street. “
Charles’s official London residence at Clarence House was originally intended for Harry, but his departure for the US means this is “out of the question” as the residence is likely to be kept for Prince George, Princess Charlotte or Prince Louis.
