Where Will the Queen Live If She Has to Leave Buckingham Palace?
Despite hosting events only this week, Buckingham Palace may not be fit for royalty anymore. According to reports, a £150 million restoration of the palace is needed, and it could mean Queen Elizabeth II has to relocate temporarily. The palace has not been renovated since the Queen came to the throne and as a result needs everything from rewiring to asbestos removal, plus new boilers and redecoration throughout. The good news? If the Queen does need to vacate while the work takes place, she's hardly short of options. There are dozens of royal residences (both occupied and unoccupied) throughout the UK that she could choose to call "home" during the repairs. Let's take a look at the most likely contenders.
