The Queen or King Regnant live in Buckingham Palace, the masses and tourists come to photograph a Palace that is in daily use. They stop to watch 'The Changing of the Guard', but would it be worth it if nobody lived there and it was just a museum?

It is a status symbol and I think the government learnt their lesson when they short-sightedly retired The Royal Yacht Britannia, that moveable diplomatic palace.

As to Clarence House? That will remain to be seen as it has been the heir's home, the Queen Mother's home and the heir's home again.
The King can simply use Buckingham Palace for all official acts but live at Clarence House. In most monarchies this separation is made: Drottningholm + Kungliga Slott Stockholm, La Zarzuela + Palacio Real Madrid, Château de Laeken + Palais Royal Bruxelles, Huis ten Bosch + Noordeinde in The Hague, Schloss Berg + Palais Grand-Ducal in Luxembourg.

In fact Queen Elizabeth is already more in other royal residences (Windsor, Balmoral, Holyrood) than at Buckingham Palace.
