King Charles won't live in Buckingham Palace 'for 5 years' due to renovations
READ MORE: Royal chiefs to 'quietly drop' Consort from Camilla's title before Charles' coronationA source told the Sun that the primary residence will be Clarence House, where the pair have spent the majority of their time of the past two decades which sits just 400 yards away from Buckingham Palace.The couple moved into the five bed residence after the death of the Queen Mother in 2003.There schedule is likely to see the royal couple spend three nights a week at Clarence House, two at Windsor Castle and weekends at the Sandringham retreat in Norfolk.The source said: "Refurbishment is very far behind schedule but the Monarch should be living at Buckingham Palace."It's the heart of the monarchy in London, otherwise it risks becoming just a tourist attraction."We effectively have a king without a palace to live in."But that is not the only residences the royals are able to make use of.They also have residences in Highgrove House in Gloucestershire which was bought by King Charles in 1980.Since then he has made it a point of pride in having the grounds immaculately attended to in line with his green credentials.Buckingham Palace thought to be around halfway through its refurbishment, much of which involves new wiring, plumbing, and heating.The bill for the refurbishment is footed by the taxpayer via the Sovereign Grant, with a third of the cash set aside for maintenance of all the royal palaces. The maintenance was ordered after the palace was deemed a fire risk and water damage risk having been left relatively untouched since the Second World War.

Retired colonel reveals the exhaustively detailed planning behind Queen Elizabeth II's funeral
The retired lieutenant colonel behind the arrangements for Queen Elizabeth’s lying-in-state and her funeral has spoken for the first time about the exhaustively detailed planning that took place away from public view.Lt Col Anthony Mather spent more than a decade drawing up ‘London Bridge’, the codename given to the arrangements for when the Queen died.And, as he reveals today, so painstakingly thorough were the preparations that:A replica of Westminster Hall was constructed in an aircraft hangar for dry runs of the lying-in-state.A special illuminated railway carriage was prepared with glass windows allowing mourners a glimpse of the coffin for if the Royal Train made the journey from Edinburgh to London, or from elsewhere.Lt Col Mather had to spy on the layout of Royal corridors – including at Prince Philip’s Sandringham cottage – to plan the movement of the Queen’s coffin.The carpets put down for the lying-in-state in Westminster Hall were tested to destruction by a man in boots with steel-tipped heels. Lt Col Anthony Mather spent more than a decade drawing up ‘London Bridge’, the codename given to the arrangements for when the Queen died.Lt Col Mather worked alongside the Duke of Norfolk who, as Earl Marshal, has formal oversight of coronations and Royal funerals.

New Kate Middleton photos spell 'disaster' for King Charles, royal expert claims
Kate Middleton could spell disaster for King Charles, a royal expert has claimed.The Princess of Wales and her husband, William, travelled to the Queen's Norfolk estate of Sandringham on Thursday (September 15) to thank the public for their condolences, and were met by huge crowds offering flowers at the remote palace.Images show the future King and Queen smiling and talking to royal fans, who had journeyed from across the country to catch a glimpse of the Waleses - and the pics could mean trouble for the new King Charles.READ MORE: Queue tracker live: Exact location and wait times for Queen's lying-in-state lineThe late Queen's eldest son has been on the throne for just over a week, ever since Her Majesty tragically died last Thursday (September 8).And although reception of the new King and Queen Consort Camilla has so far seemed positive, the King has already had a number of small but embarrassing public blunders - mostly involving fountain pens.Royal expert Daniela Elser said the King was already floundering just a week into the job, and that these photos showing the British public's famous love for Will and Kate could give him pause for thought.Writing for news.com.au, she said: "Charles clearly needed a bit of a break, a chance to soak in the tub with some Molton Brown bubble bath and to re-read the Magna Carta to double-check it still limits royal authority."It’s only one week into the job he has waited more than 50 years to do and he has already managed to have not one but two tanties caught on video."She added: "If ever there was a moment that should make Charles choke on his afternoon fruitcake, it’s this."Charles’ time to shine might have arrived, but if these new images of William and Kate are anything to go
