I buy the geese argument - we have them here and they are a huge problem in otherwise lovely municipal green spaces. I've seen successful broods of twenty goslings! The random Canada goose can create 4.5 pounds of excrement per hour and thrives on lawns. Said excrement is sticky as well as voluminous. It's a drag when you find it in that lovely spot your family has always held their annual picnic in the grass! As with all international migratory birds, they are protected here in the US. So there are no easy answers about how to control them.
Swans being highly aggressive and territorial sound like a good passive response.
But it would be a let down to see decoys in the Palace pond!

Buckingham Palace

It should also be noted that the Canadian goose is also evil. So even if their poop wasn't an issue, their attitude is good reason to want to deter them from taking up residence.

Odd never took geese for being scared if swans. Been to plenty of duck ponds to feed birds, and see geese and swans as well as ducks

But yes geese are horribly noisy and messy. Though I find them far less aggressive then some swans.

A second man has been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences after three police officers were injured in an alleged terrorist incident outside Buckingham Palace.

The 30-year-old from west London has been arrested on suspicion of being involved in the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism, the Metropolitan Police said.

An Uber driver terror suspect arrested outside Buckingham Palace had originally headed for Windsor Castle but his SatNav sent him to a pub of the same name instead.

Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 26, was taken into custody after allegedly driving a blue Toyota Prius at a marked police car outside the Palace last Friday.

Police said the suspect reached for a 4ft-long samurai sword and yelled "Allahu Akbar" as he was tackled by officers and sprayed with CS gas.

Anyone who would write this, don't know Prince Charles very well. The man loves the grandeur and splendor of royal life. He loves the palaces, jewels and ceremony. Charles would never give up Buckingham Palace.

This is news based on an investigation from the Times, but both Clarence House and Charles's communications secretary Julian Payne has denied it.

Read about it in the After Elizabeth thread:
The Monarchy after Elizabeth II

I think Charles will go to BP, he is a traditionalist at heart. William will go to Clarence House. Harry will move into 1A, where he will remain as his city residence.

They already said that the Cambridges would stay at KP when William is heir apparent.

Yes, KP is the Cambridge's official London Residence until William is King.

Woman arrested for 'climbing into Buckingham Palace' | Daily Mail Online

Daily Mail has a video. My first thought is that the woman belongs to the category of people, who for whatever reason wish to "have a talk" with a BRF member.
Probably got mental issues.

I don't know about Harry in 1A, but I heartily agree with the rest.

I also think that it is fortuitous that the monarch's private quarters at BP will be the last bit to be renovated. Charles has such strong opinions and preferences when it comes to interior design matters.

It boggles my mind to think of what kind of wonderful old silks and damasks must be in storage at BP and Windsor.

Probably many museum quality pieces stored away!

When it comes to the public areas of BP I believe that HM and Charles are both of a mind to keep it as living history and many items of furniture and the art collection cycle through as ongoing work keeps these treasures in good repair. Silks fade, time and use cause wear, etc. Nothing can stay exactly the same because of that but essentially everything stays within the realm of the way things were.

The private areas of BP will definitely be furnished in a way that is both comfortable for the resident and make use of what art and furniture are available, regardless of who the monarch is. Clarence House and KP Apartment 1A were both in need of a complete renovation as Clarence House had not been updated since HMQM moved in and Apartment 1A hadn't been updated since Princess Margaret set up house there after her marriage in the sixties.
