The Queen may have a SANCTUARY at Buckingham Palace as a ‘reminder of an incredible reign’ | royal | News

Duncan Larcombe, author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, said turning Buckingham Palace into a sanctuary for the Queen would have “huge” public support and would be “brilliant”. Mr Larcombe added there was no need for Charles to live at Buckingham Palace when he becomes king, a decision he calls ‘logical’ as it could be a ‘reminder’ of the ‘incredible’ reign of the queen.

He said OK! Magazine: “Buckingham Palace is so closely associated with the reign of Elizabeth II that it could well turn into a kind of sanctuary.

“The public appetite for that would be huge, and that would be great.

“It’s the logical thing to do, and it can still be guarded by the police during the visit of the American president. And the royal family can still appear on the balcony.

“You don’t need a member of the monarchy to be in residence for the palace to be attractive.

“And I think, therefore, that would leave it as a reminder of the Queen’s incredible reign.”

The Prince of Wales has settled with his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, in Clarence House, where the late Queen Mother lived in her final years.

So it looks like the royal couple are happy in their current home, where the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh lived in the early years of their marriage from 1947 to 1952.

As a result, it’s entirely possible that Charles won’t move into Buckingham Palace at all when he becomes king.

The source added: “There is no doubt about that. HRH’s view is that you need a monarch at the seat of the monarchy. That has never been in doubt.

The source continued: “Just like the Queen, he will indeed be in ‘the apartment above the store’.

“He thinks it’s right, just like the Queen, to work from Buckingham Palace.
“The palace will always be a center of work and entertainment and will also always be open to visitors. It is an extremely important tourist attraction.

“But the prince can still live there at the same time, much like he does in Highgrove, which is also open to the public.”
