Everything seems to indicate that Prince Charles already has plans ready for when he becomes king that will be once his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, dies. According to British media, the heir to the crown is already thinking about what his official residence will be like when it is his turn to wear the crown.
According to the Daily Mail, Charles will restructure the royal residences including Buckingham Palace.
Prince Charles hopes that the residences of Buckingham Palace will be reduced and his wish is to occupy an apartment like the Prime Minister’s dwelling in Downing Street.
The most recent renovations at Buckingham Palace have a budget of 430 million euros to refurbish every building in which there are 52 rooms and 188 rooms for staff and will be completed in 2026.
“Both the Prince and Duchess of Cornwall are very practical and see that the reigning monarch must live in Buckingham Palace, otherwise it would become Hampton Court, an attraction for visitors rather than a functioning royal palace,” a source close to the couple revealed to the British media.
Charles also has other properties to settle in during his reign. He will keep his home in Highgrove. Another residence in Gloucestershire, he is also likely to occupy Birkhall, the property in Scotland he inherited from his grandmother in 2002.
What is not yet clear is what will happen to Clarence House, its official residence in London, most likely over the years it will be occupied by one of the children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate.
