Prince Charles to Cut Taxpayer Royal Family Funding When King Is ‘Good For The Brand’ | Royal | New
Prince Charles is already the longest lifespan heir to the throne, becoming heir evident when his mother became queen in 1952. When he became sovereign, Charles would have to use Buckingham Palace as his headquarters, in keeping with tradition. Recent reports have said, however, that Charles will make key changes to living quarters when he moves in, including potential changes to how royals will be funded with public money.
Royally US podcast hosts Molly Mulshine and Christina Garibaldi discussed the move.
Ms Mulshine said: “It looks like that’s the plan, it looks like he’s going to open Buckingham Palace mainly to the public.
“Sources say he will be living in an apartment above the store.
“I think he’s great, I think that’s what people are going to expect from him.”

She added: “The Queen has her own brand of stardust and astonishment that everyone loves.”
“I think Charles can come in and be a little more pragmatic, and win people over by saying, we’re not spending all your tax dollars, we’re opening things up to the public, it’s for you and us.
“I think being a little more egalitarian will be really good for your brand.”
Ms Garibaldi added: “I think so too, and he may also be considering turning Balmoral into a museum, and Kate and William will move to Windsor to be closer.”

Making the headlines today, Charles has also been very vocal on the climate crisis.
In a hard-hitting interview with BBC Climate Editor Justin Rowlatt, the prince claimed: there would be a “catastrophic” impact if more ambitious measures are not taken on climate change.
He is expected to attend the COP26 summit later this month alongside the Queen, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and his wife, Camilla.
