Charles will move where the Queen is, William will moved to where Charles is, and Harry will move to where William is. The only difference is, Harry will stay there permanently. The only delay may be Amner, until William is king. Then again, there are numerous other houses on the estates to chose from.

Harry may not move to where William is - Harry may not move at all. Depending on when the Queen dies, it may be that Harry is already established and therefore has no need to move. Charles will go to where his parents are now, while William will go to where his father is now, as their roles will both be drastically changing. Harry's, on the other hand, won't be changing that much.

Harry's role will become less important as George grows - and eventually it will be George who will probably end up with Anmer and Apartment 1A - if he marries as second in line or heir.

I can see William and Kate staying in KP though as heir and leaving CH to wait until George is ready to take it over rather than do multiple moves just as they will stay in Anmer until William is King and moves into the big house while Anmer becomes George's.

Harry is moving to minor royal status - just as Andrew and Margaret did before him.

The two brothers positions will diverge over time - William will move only ever closer to the throne while Harry will move further away. The rumours are the Kate wants three children - meaning Harry will drop from 4th - 6th in a couple of years and clearly into minor royal status then (just as Beatrice and Eugenie are regarded now).

I watched a gardening programme tonight which featured Highgrove and its stumpery. The reason for mentioning this is that is was obvious from what was shown and said by the Head Gardener that Charles loves - truly loves, Highgrove.

All things are negotiable - maybe he will want and be able to keep it once he is King. Why not? Just because things have been done a certain way, it doesn't mean they have to stay that way.

IMO,
When the Queen dies, Clarence House becomes a museum open year round. Focused mostly on the Queen, Phillip, Queen Mum and Charles, with all four floors opened.

Charles & Camilla moves in BP.
William and Kate remain in KP Apt 1A.

When Charles dies.
William & Kate move to BP.
George remains in KP Apt 1A until he becomes King & moves into BP.

The royals usually do not get a separate London home from their parents until they are married with a child on the way. George will probably still be single when William becomes King.

As far as Harry, I see him getting Wren House. The Kents are the oldest and will probably vacate KP the soonest.

I think there is a very good chance that George will be married before his father becomes King as that event is possibly 25 to 30 years away given the longevity of the family and the way Charles has taken care of himself.

I do think that CH will remain a home - simply because it is part of the St James' palace complex and I don't see them opening part of that complex permanently when most of it is closed to the public now due to its role in the monarchy.

I don't see why CH would have much to do with The Queen and Philip who only lived there for a couple of years as it wasn't ready when they first married and they had to move in 1952 to BP.

The Kent's are older - certainly but that doesn't mean they will be dying or moving as they have no other home. I can see them staying there until they pass and as given the longevity issue again I can see the Duke still being with us in 10 - 15 years time when Harry is 40+ and thus he will need a home of his own, presumably before then.

Highgrove is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall not Charles personally. When Charles is King, William is the new Duke. William could let his father stay there, but Charles will have Windsor to experiment with and William would need Highgrove as Charles did to be close to the Duchy land and Wales.

While I do agree that becoming King takes Charles out of Highgrove, legally, I do think his son could never take Highgrove out of Charles. It is the POW's lifelong labor of love. He will visit - and I dare say, his favorite places will not be changed. Just my opinion, though. The two of them could surprise me!

I would expect that when Charles is King, he will use BP, Windsor Castle, Balmoral and Sandringham.

This would leave William with CH, Anmer and Highgrove.

And Harry with appt 1a in KP and a country residence elsewhere.

That certainly seems very plausible to me.

William will also have Birkhall - just as Charles has now - unless Charles stays are Birkhall and William moves into the main castle.

Why would Harry need a country house? Minor royals these days aren't getting the two homes like in the past and Harry is now largely a minor royal - just as Andrew and Margaret became before him with the birth of the new direct line generation.

Andrew currently has an apartment in BP and The Royal Lodge. Edward and Anne also have apartments in BP and their main residence elsewhere. Margaret had Apartment 1A and that was it - and that is all Harry can really expect, unless he is going to spend his own money buying somewhere new.

Yes but all 4 of the Queen's children have a residence in a palace in London and a main residence elsewhere. Margaret had a second home in the Caribbean. I am sure when married, Harry will be given a second home.

THe home in the caribbean was not a gift from the royal family. I know that I've been told I'm wrong about this, but I think that Harry (somehow) will have the use of Highgrove.

To be honest, I think that if Harry were to have a second home, it would be one he purchases for himself and his family and will be in Africa.

I think he'll need a countryside house.

Future Home for Prince Harry

Margaret's house was a wedding gift from Colin Tennent. Harry isn't going to have a income source like the Duchy of Cornwall to fund a large household. Harry's share of his Diana inheritance which he can access this Sept when he turns 30 is only around £10 million.

Highgrove is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall so it will be under William's control. He could lease it to his brother if he wanted.

I think William is more likely to be leasing Highgrove to Charles while he is Duke of Cornwall as I don't think Charles will move out of his favourite home just because he is King.

So it will be George from whom Harry may be able to lease Highgrove.

But Anne, Edward and Andrew are in the same position as Harry will be and they manage to fund large country homes. Anne's is obviously private property but there must still be big running costs involved.

Apartment 1A though is much, much larger than the apartments that Anne, Andrew and Edward have in BP as they don't actually 'live' in those apartments but stay there when they can't get home.

If Harry has 1A then that will be his main home and to then have a second massive home in the country will not be in keeping with his lessening importance in the family and would be seen as completely ostentatious for the mere second child.

If Margaret coped with one British home then Harry can as well - whether it is a country one with an apartment in BP when his father and then brother is monarch or 1A and stays with Charles or William at Sandringham or Balmoral - and there are other homes on those estates he could have as his country home.

The point that seems to being missed is that the younger siblings have ONE major home and a small London based for work purposes and somehow think that Harry should have more than say Andrew who is also the second son or Margaret had.

Another point that needs to be considered is where will Andrew, Anne and Edward have their London bases when Charles is King - or will they only have their country residence and thus have to travel home after London events?

I wonder why Margaret only had the one residence. Did her and Anthony raise their children solely at Kensington Palace?

As for William and Kate - are they using 1A as their main residence with Anmer as a retreat or other way around, more like Charles' siblings?

I expect Harry will have another place when he has children - he could even share Anmer if it is free much of the time.
