Prince William and Kate could “upgrade” to Buckingham Palace after Prince Charles becomes King, according to royal reports. Traditionally the Palace is used as the monarch’s official London residence, however Prince Charles is reportedly set on remaining at Clarence House when he ascends to the throne. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge currently use Kensington Palace as their official London residence. 

The List reported, “Once Prince William becomes King, their residence will change. Obviously they’ll still live in a palace, but their upgrade will be a lot bigger and whole lot more prestigious.”

“The family could actually move to Buckingham Palace before William becomes King since his father Prince Charles is reportedly planning on staying at Clarence House when he becomes King.”

Buckingham Palace has been used as the official residence of the monarch since 1837, when Queen Victoria decided to move the royal court from St James’s Palace. 

Whilst William and Kate reside in Apartment 1A of Kensington Palace, they make frequent use of their country home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk. 

The couple are parents to three young children; Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3. 

Prince Charles has lived at Clarence House since 2002, along with his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. Located on The Mall, it was the former residence of the Queen Mother. 

As well as Clarence House, the Prince of Wales spends a large amount of time as his country estate, Highgrove House. 

Prince William and Prince Harry frequently visited Highgrove, which is based in Gloucestershire, during their childhood.  

Royal sources believe that Prince Charles, who is in his mid-seventies, will not wish to undergo the fuss of moving his property and offices over to Buckingham Palace once he succeeds his mother to the throne. 

In recent years, he has hosted a number of senior dignitaries and officials at Clarence House.

This includes former President Donald Trump and his wife Melania during their visit to the UK in December 2019.

Other official royal residencies include Windsor Castle, Balmoral Castle and the Sandringham Estate. 

The Royal Family are known for spending their summer holidays at Balmoral in the Scottish Highlands and spending Christmas at Sandringham. 

During the lockdown for Covid-19, the Queen and her late husband spent several months isolating at Windsor Castle, in what was nicknamed the ‘HMS Bubble’. It was later the place of Prince Philip’s death on April 9. 

The Queen is expected to host US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden at Windsor Castle on Sunday, June 13, which coincides with the end of President Biden’s visit for the G7 summit.
