Queen Elizabeth II is not too 'keen' on the idea of turning Buckingham Palace into a museum: report

Prince Charles reportedly wants to turn the palace into a museum and trim down the monarchy to only include seven major figures.

Prince Charles is planning some major shakeups should he ever inherit the throne, including whittling down the monarchy to seven major figures and turning Buckingham Palace into a museum — something his mother, the Queen, is said to be firmly against.

A royal source told The Mirror the museum plan will "not be happening any time soon" while Her Majesty rules.

The palace is where the Queen raised her four children and has presided during her decades on the throne. She opened it up to the public in 1993, allowing visitors to tour select parts of the 775-room palace, but not the family apartments.

"She’s not very keen on that particular idea and believes of course, that it should remain a family home of sorts," the source added.

"Her Majesty the Queen will go between Windsor Castle, which she considers her main London base, and spending two to four days a week also out at the re-renovated Buckingham Palace," the source told the news outlet. "So for now, whatever you’re reading, it doesn’t look like Prince Charles is going to be getting his own way anytime soon."

One of the reasons Charles may be looking to offload the mega-home is the cost, which is millions to just maintain. It was last restored in WWII, and while a $500 million dollar renovation was approved in 2016, it won’t be ready until 2027.
