Following Prince Philip's sad passing in 2021, the Queen has continued to spend most of her time at the 900-year-old property, which is the largest occupied castle in the world with around 1,000 rooms and 484,000 square feet of space.

However, Buckingham Palace has long been considered a symbol of the British monarchy, dating back to Queen Victoria who made it her official London residence in 1837. It boasts 775 rooms, a private cinema, chapel and even its own Post Office, offering plenty of amenities for Charles and Camilla should they choose to move. It is thought it will become a working and entertaining hub that remains open to the public.

The couple's primary residence is Clarence House

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee message on Sunday 6 February read: "I would like to express my thanks to you all for your support. I remain eternally grateful for, and humbled by, the loyalty and affection that you continue to give me.

"And when, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service."
