Maybe Philip could live at Frogmore House.

I'm sure in a place as big as Buckingham Palace, they could avoid each other for days if they wanted to.

Unless the anti-monarchists get their wish and Charles remains POW and the monarchy is abolished and the rest is put out to pasture. Let us hope not!

I thought I heard that Charles was going to use St James Palace or Windsor Castle?

Maybe the Windsors will decide to keep BP for business and actually live at Windsor or somewhere else. BP doesn't sound very comfortable, but then again how comfortable can a 1,000-year-old castle be?? (But I could believe that Philip would prefer to reside at Windsor since he has been the Ranger and has had such an influence over the development of its environs.)

Buckingham Palace isn't 1000 years old; Windsor Castle is.

An awful lot happens and much has to be done when a Monarch dies. Of course it is teh same everyone dies - there are many arrangements to be made and things to sort out like the funeral and (in the case of royalty) the eventual coronation. However, all these things will have already been decided upon and there will be set precendents in place to ensure everything runs smoothly (almost like a handbook so whoever organised it can look at teh list of things that need doing and how they should be done).

I do love these discussions and this particular one is really interesting! It is quite right that the coronation would be held after a suitable period of mourning and a date would be fixed to ensure overseas heads of state can attend. A coronation is likely to take place in the May or June the following year after the previous monarch died. Don't forget that the coronation robes will need to be made and Westminster Abbey will be altered inside to ensure all the guests can fit in. Personally I will be very interested to see whether there will be any changes to the coronation when Charles becomes king. Monarchs in Britain are annointed with holy oil then crowned and the ceremony will last for several hours. It is very likely that the Coronation willbe much the same as the Queens in 1953 - I can't see how else it can be done. As an aside, I much preferred Queen Beatrix' inauguration ceremony.

Quit honestly I don't know.

I don't think it is possible to compare the two kinds of transitions. They are to different in nature.

I meant, and this is an awful long time for a rebuttal! That Charles would probably have to take up residence in BP, regardless as to his wishes, because of tradition.

If the DoE were to live in Windsor Castle, would the 1000-year-old castle be comfortable or appropriate for a prince almost in his 90s? Windsor is hardly like Clarence House, which has been renovated several times in the course of this century. (But this is probably a moot point since the DoE doesn't seem to be in the best of health lately, and the Queen probably won't abdicate.)

I can't imagine it'll be William as he will be King someday and it's not usually the Sov. for obvious reasons

Maybe Harry will be the next Ranger? Of course, I guess it depends on how taxing this position has to be since it looks like Harry really is trying to make a go of a military career.

He wouldn't be when he was King but maybe replace his grandfather during his father's reign.

Perhaps he will be granted the title when he is Prince of Wales, however I think Iowabelle may be right and Harry could well succeed The Duke of Edinburgh as Ranger

Does the Accession Council happen on the day of the Monarchs passing?
