However, Charles and Camilla do not appear to be thrilled to live in the world’s most famous palace and do little to dispel rumors that they may never move in.

The Palace also does not offer its residents the kind of lavish lifestyle that millions of tourists expect.

Residents, according to the former servant, are “confined to a small corner of quite a draughty building” and are unable to live in the entire house.

In comparison, “Clarence House has more private living space, as the first and second floors are just for the King and Queen”, which could also explain why Charles might not wish to move to Buckingham Palace.
