Royal Lodge, Windsor

The link to the pic that was here had failed. It is now re-linked:

--> York Family outside Royal Lodge, June 2005

There are very few images available on the internet but here's two aerial shots:

--> Royal Lodge, Windsor (scroll down)
--> Royal Lodge, Windsor
(small, colour)

It is a surprisingly large building.

I heard a while back that Andrew and Sarah still live with eachother! So, my question is that still true?

I also thought Andrew and Sara were still living in the same house, it's interesting that neither of them have been linked to a significant other and given that recent photo of them together at Royal Lodge would seem to indicate...

Are there any more pictures of the Royal Lodge. You really couldn't see much of the house in that posted pic. Great shot of the family. though.

It was no great architectural wonder, so it would be no loss if the place was raised to the ground and a new building put there!

The link to the pic of the York family outside Royal Lodge in post #1 had failed so I've found the pic and re-linked it.
I've also found two other photos which show the scale of the residence.

I was wondering about the possibility of Prince Harry being given Royal Lodge when Charles is king? Andrew is unlikely to need such a large home and could be given a smaller property in a a palace in London, Nottingham Cottage at KP for example.

Why should Andrew have to move to London in his 60s or 70s when he has had a home at Windsor since his mid-20s?

Andrew also shares that place with his daughters and ex-wife - so it is their base when at Windsor.

Beacuse by then he will be a minor royal with a much dimished role. He will be the Princess margaret of his generation.
If he is to stay at Windsor, as he may well want to, he could be given a much smaller property, possibly wthout the need for residential staff.

Why do you want to make him move at all - he will be a major royal for a long time yet as he will be one of the first 4 in line to the throne for at least 21 years - allowing for The Queen to live that long (unrealistic) so even longer than that - in that time he will be serving as a Counsellor of State - from from minor royal status at all but one of the most important.

You are aware that the lease on Royal Lodge is also in Andrew's name so it isn't up to anyone to ask him to move as he basically owns it - I believe the lease is a 99 year lease so it is for his use and then that of his descendents.

Of course he will need residential staff - as he has never been without it and is more likely to need it in the future e.g. if he needs nursing care.

On the staff issue, he currently employs people to run baths and all kind of things for himself. Apart from perhaps a cleaner, a single man of his age should be able to run a house by himself, including cooking and ironing which everyone else manages to do themselves.

You're not talking about an ordinary single man here. Especially one who lives with two daughters in their 20s living in a house like Royal Lodge.

We are still talking about the second son of the monarch, and although I am sure he can do some of these things given his education at Gordonstoun and time in the navy, he is a royal and royals have staff, particularly in his generation. Even the Kents and Gloucesters have staff to do things like this as that is normal in their circles.

Princess Margaret wasn't kicked out of Kensington Palace when the Queen's Children became adults. Why should Andrew leave Royal Lodge? Not Cottage is not suitable. Andrew does some formal entertaining from his home.

Harry will have a suitable home without kicking anyone else out of theirs. Right now he doesn't need much. He doesn't have a family and he doesn't need to entertain royal guests.

At least until he reaches the point where he needs elder care. I'm not kidding - I look at my dad and realize what he needs are some stiff backed keepers of the wardrobe, etc. And Andrew is not that much younger than Dad; it all depends upon the person.

Thats quite amusing. Is it really our business of where Andrew lives or how Andrew handles his doemstic affairs? Let him employ a 100 people if he so chooses to: think of the positive impact on the economy!

He is only in his early 50s, his mum is unlikely to live another 15-20 years.

Prince Andrew advertises for £16k skivvy who can run a bath and help with the packing | Mail Online

Yes I know it's a rubbish newspaper but the actual advert is shown.

But he is an ordinary man. Royalty are not chosen by God as many use to believe. His mum happens to be a head of state. And he is from a wealthy family. But Andrew, himself, is an ordinary person. Therefore he should run his own baths. I wouldn't expect even the Prime Minister to have their baths run for them, and certainly not their children.

I have the greatest respect for Andrew's naval service, but nowadays his status has fallen considerably. The public like to see hardworking royals, which is why HM, DoE, Charles and Anne are probably the most respected royals, whereas many of the others are seen less favourably, whether or not that is fair.

With all due respect, looking at Iluvbertie's weekly tallies of engagements on the Court Circular, Andrew actually is in third place so far this year in respect to number of royal engagements. I would say he's very hard working.

What is this urge some people seem to have to move royals around from house to house like pieces on a chess board. There is no real need for anyone to relocate, other than a new monarch and the consort of the previous monarch. The rest can all continue to live where they do now.
I certainly can see no reason why anyone should have to move out of their private residence, i.e.Royal Lodge, in order to make room for a younger member of the family. Is this another example of ageism.....everyone must make way for what is younger, newer, shinier???
