Future Home for Prince Harry

Are there any ideas as to where either one of the boys will live once they are married?

Well if one of them wants it they can get Highgrove house. No royals have every liked Buckingham Palace so I dont they will live their when there married or father is King. Theres Clarence House and a bunch of other houses and Palaces.

William most likely Highgrove, or possibly Balmoral. Kensington or St. James Palace for Harry!

I believe the Duke Of York, and the Earl and Countess of Wessex stay at Buckinham palace. How do they decide which family gets which part of the palace?

I'm not Princejohnny25, but I heard that it's cold and damp and that when Prince Edward wanted to put in a satellite dish, he had all sorts of problems with restrictions, licenses, etc because Buckingham Palace doesn't belong to the monarchy. At least that's what I thought I read.

I also read somewhere that there is some sort of country home that Prince Charles is renovating that there has been much speculation that it is being done for William. I think it lies in Cornwall.

I think that when William marries his father will give him Highgrove & Charles & Camilla will use Birkhall as their country residence until Charles inherits Balmoral & Sandringham.
In London there are places like Wren House, which is currently occupied by the Duke and Duchess of Kent which could be made available to Harry once the Duke & Duchess pass over.

i think B.P will be open to the public all year round once the queen dies as clarence house is big enough for private and small state entertaining ( they are linked to state rooms in st james's palace also). ST J is currenly lived in by Princesses anne and alexandra and there are several apartment currently used by staff and military heads so for william and harry i wold think that this is where they would reside in the future as st james's is the official seat of the moanrch and very central. there is nothing in place that myself or the neighbours know of regarding junior royal moving out of kensington palace, ( local residents are told if changes are made reagrding the a change of building use, we were told when they converted some royal apartments to a museum a few years ago) only the michael's have a date in a couple of years to vacate. In twenty years time i see only the complex that is st james's palace will be used with maybe the heir ( william ) at york house which is the largest apartment there and other members having offices and small suites as the duke of yourk and earl of wessex are less than a hour away from central london.

The William story refers to him buying a house in the country

I think there was also a story about a house being built on Highgrove property for William.

When William and Harry are in the army will they live in the housing the army provides or will they move back into a royal (or personal) residence ?

Thanks :)
On who stays where, I'm sure the lady of the House is the one who has the final say. Although there must be a committee somewhere to decide on these particular details as the new royal kids are born.

I would think that William would need to be in London and not in Scotland or out in the country. As he is the next heir after Charles it owuld make sense that he maintains a high profile lifestyle and residence. In my opinion.

Yes, I just said that because it seems William likes living in the country and spending as much time there as he can. I think because it allows him to hide. Diana once said he was like a caged lion in London, and he said himself in his 21st borthday interview he was a country boy at heart. I guess someone can be Prince of Wales from Highgrove though, since Charles did it.:)

I was wondering, like if the boys got married in a few years could they reopen some of the other historical palaces? like Osbourne House?

There are two reasons why Osborne house will not be a future residence to any of the princes because 1)it is in in the Isle of Wight and that is too far from london to commute all the time. 2)Osborne House is a palace that is opened to the public.

But I think it is one of the most beautiful palaces in the world, it has such a wonderful atomsphere.

This might sound silly, but couldn't Harry just buy a normal house to live in if he wished? I understand Will couldn't with his duty as heir and all.

Theoretically, both of them can buy separate houses. I think the main factor would be how to secure the locations. Afterall, Charles didn't inherite Highgrove, he bought it in 1980.

I thought Prince Charles leased Highgrove and didn't own it outright. I thought the Cornwall properties own this.
