They need to start the work before it gets worst. It cause an electrical fire, then they could be looking at another Windsor Castle episode. I am sure the queen would be happy working the remainder of her reign full time out of Windsor.

I think the Queen would be very happy to do business from Windsor too. She really does seem to love it there.

To not do repairs that are necessary to Buckingham Palace as soon as possible would be sheer lunacy. I would even go as far as to state that BP is a national treasure and its upkeep should be a priority. There are so many historical rooms and priceless artwork among other things. It is not only just the residence of the Monarch but it preserves British history along with being a prime tourist attraction.

Getting a bit too cold, eh?

Wrong time of year to be sitting on roofs. (We don't seem to have a freezing smiley).

It might have been freezing up on that roof but one thing for sure, once they did come down, its a given that they were in a lot of

When I went to London once for a visit, BP was the very 1st place I wanted to see for all the history, the art and wonderful rooms where so much of the British history took place. I so agree with your assessment that it would be sheer lunacy not to upkeep this historical monument for all times. This speaks to every person in Britain and to all the tourists that go there, this is part of their history of who they are.

I think it's made to view in a virutal reality player of some sort. Like an ocolus rift or other VR player.

Maybe could go as high as 2 mil if they AirBNB for Trooping of the Color. Some people have too much time on their hands.

Royal palace to be renovated with help from Sir Robert McAlpine | Royal | News | Daily Express
Quote:
THE builders of the Millennium Dome and Olympic Stadium are to advise the Queen on the multi-million pound refurbishment of Buckingham Palace.

Sir Robert McAlpine, the company responsible for other landmarks including the Glenfinnan Viaduct, featured in four Harry Potter films, the Dorchester Hotel and the Eden Project, has been drafted in by the Queen to assess the options for renovating her London home following reports that is in need of urgent repairs costing £150million.
If this is true then I would rather have written that they had been drafted in by the royal household and not by the the Queen, but that doesn't sound as interesting, does it!

I've always wondered how these intruders are able to fool the high security of BP...It's really impressive!

I don't think Buckingham Palace's security is what it should be. There have been far too many of these incidents over the years.

I don't think it's all the high security. The back garden is pretty big and surrounded by a brick wall. Can climb wall into garden. I don't know if there are sensors but the wildlife in the garden a bird or squirrel would probably set them all the time.
