Thanks for any replies! :)
There is a floor Plan of Clarence House in the Guide of it. But it contains only the rooms on the Ground florr which can be visited in Summer every Year.

General Discussion about British Royal Residences

I was wondering if anybody knows on which estates several children of Queen Victoria lived. The Duke of Connaught had Bagshot Park but what about the Dukes of Edinburgh and Albany? I suppose they both had a house on the country side too.

The Duke and Duchess of Albany, and later the widowed Duchess, lived at Claremont House. See this Wiki article.
The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh (Alfred and Marie of Russia) lived at Clarence House.

And Clarence House became the London residence of the Duke and Duchess of Connaught after the Duke mof Edinburgh and Saxe-Coburg had passed away.

There are very many venues in Scotland, IMO, that ONLY offer a christian ceremony. The article is wrong when it states that Charles would not have been able to marry there, why not? Scotland allows divorced couples to marry in church, so why would this be any different!

It does seem a contradiction that QEQM surrounded herself with gay attendants and yet they cant marry there.

Under Scottish law, a marriage can take place at the castle if performed by a religious figure who already holds a licence.

However, if a couple wished to have a civil marriage at the castle, the trustees would have to apply for a licence from their local council. The trustees have decided not to do so, initially.

"They did not want civil ceremonies here and therefore there was no need to apply for a civil licence. That was as far as the discussion went. They did not get into the discussion of gay partnerships

I don't see a contradiction. Having servants who are homosexual is one thing; having gays or lesbians marry each other in one's home is quite another.

Sunninghill?

I read somewhere that Sunninghill was deserted and basically falling into ruin. What happened? I read that Andrew was selling the place, but why is it in such bad shape? It's not an old house, is it?
Did they run over budget and cut corners or what?
Purrs,
Pook

The swimming pools are covered in slime and weeds, doors hang off their hinges and the wind whistles through shattered windows.

Like Pook, I would like to know why the place is falling apart. It was built new for the Yorks, wasn't it? Why does everything look so bad? Cheap materials? Shoddy workmanship? Being left vacant doesn't really explain it for me.

Any house, especially in the UK that isn't heated during the winter months is subject to damage. With nobody apparently bothering to check it, local wasters will smash windows and do quite a bit of damage for a laugh. Leaking drainpipes, missing roof tiles will add to the damp within the house, which in turn will cause wood to swell and rot away from the joints.
It is as you suggest, also possible that it was shoddy workmanship.
