London: King Charles wants to open Buckingham Palace more to visitors

The British King Charles III. According to a report, (74) wants to make Buckingham Palace and other royal residences more accessible to the public. The “Telegraph” reported on Saturday, citing its own information, that visitors should have the opportunity to visit the palace in the heart of London all year round. So far, it has usually only been open in the summer months and for individual tours on winter weekends.

The monarch is aware that foreign state guests expect to stay overnight at Buckingham Palace and that other official events should take place there, the newspaper wrote, citing insider sources. However, Charles is also aware that the public has major challenges to overcome in times of inflation and crisis and he therefore wants to enable more participation in royal splendor.

The “Sun” recently reported that Prince Andrew was no longer allowed to use his previous room in the palace.

Clarence House will remain his primary residence

The city palace is currently being extensively renovated. According to reports, Charles and his wife Camilla (75) want to keep their previous main residence Clarence House as the center of their lives anyway.

At least since the death of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, many of the royal residences have been largely empty. According to the report, the country estate in Sandringham in East England, where the Royal Family traditionally spends Christmas, is also planned for more sightseeing opportunities.

About the Scottish country estate Balmoral, where the Queen died last September, it was said months ago that Charles wanted to use it for exhibitions. He himself has another residence on the estate, Birkhall, where he stays when he is in Scotland.
