I was reading today that the Queen Mum had 5 homes even at 100 years old which surprised me. I think if I was her I would have given up Clarence House and one of her two homes in Scotland. Based myself at Windsor and still have a holiday retreat north of the border.This would have reduced her expenditure, especially on staff, significantly.

Clarence House actually never belonged outright to the Queen Mum. She had Birkhall on the Balmoral estate which is now a residence of Charles and Camilla when they're in Scotland and one of her favorite abodes was the Castle of Mey which, I believe, is now open to the public. As far as Windsor goes, the Queen Mum had the Royal Lodge on the Windsor estate which is now where Andrew and Sarah are living (although Sarah is there by grace and favor of Andrew). The Queen Mum was never too far away from her family.

Birkhall is partof the Balmoral Estate and threfore owned by the Sovereign. The QM bought the Castle of Mey and restored it - Charles inherited and gave to Scottish Heritage, hence why it is open to the public.

I think royal-blue the queen would have agreed with your sentiments - the QM lived (and died) with a lot of debt which the Queen covered.

I haver noticed that whereas the Queen's cousins live in their palace aartments as their main residences, the Queen's children live primarily at their country homes and stay in London only for official business. was this always the case with the Queen's cousins?

I've always thought this was for financial reasons. The Kents and Gloucesters traditionally had country houses (Coppins for the Kents before they leased Anmer Hall and Barnwall Manor for the Gloucesters which they now have either sold or lease out). By selling or leasing these residences out the family get money they need. I guess they had to make a choice between a country house or apartment in the capital,I guess a large, palace apartment for peppercorn rent won out in the end.

Furthermore the Queen's cousins all have children who are grown up and starting their own families so that might take away some of the usefulness in having a country house (where the children could grown up).
