The royal family leaving Buckingham Palace for good?

Buckingham Palace

The Buckingham Palace in London has been the official residence of the British Monarchy since the start.

Now, it could be abandoned as Queen Elizabeth moves out and future Kings shun Buckingham Palace.

There are reports that the British Royal Family could be leaving Buckingham Palace for good as Her Majesty slowly moves out of it and moves into her Windsor Castle home.

The Royal staff is apparently quitting, leaving the household in ‘turmoil’. Although the Palace insists there has been ‘no change to the usual turnover of the Royal staff’. According to the recent reports, Prince Charles does not want to move into Buckingham Palace when he becomes King. This was a feeling said to be shared by the second in line to the throne, Prince William.

This all comes amid whispers of the Royal house being turned into a tourist attraction. This also means that for the first time in 180 years it may soon not be the official residence of the British Monarchy.

MAKEOVER – The Palace is undergoing a very expensive refurbishment.😱 🏰🔧🔨
“The plan is to spend more time at Windsor. All this will take place over the coming months. They have already started moving safe and others have resigned because of the changes”.

Prince Charles, who calls it the ‘big house’, is said to be ‘very comfortable’ at Clarence House with his wife, Camilla. He might rather stay put if he takes the throne one day. He believes the Palace is too large and too costly to run for modern family life. Instead, he wants the Royal Household to become a museum opened to the ticket-buying public, and to only use the Palace for ‘big occasions’.

When Royalstalk approached, a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said:

“Buckingham Palace is and will remain the official London residence of the monarch. The move by Her Majesty, who now spends Thursday to Sunday every week at Windsor Castle, was down to her age”.

The Buckingham Palace in London has been the official residence of the British monarchy since the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837 when she moved there. But it was earlier used to be known as Buckingham House. It was built on private land for the Duke of Buckingham in 1703 before it was acquired by King George III in the year 1761.

Today, at present, it serves as a home for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. Also, the Duke of York and the Earl and Countess of Wessex live in apartments there. But there are high chances that it could all soon change.
