Princes William and Harry live in Clarence House, but it's a big place (over and acre of square footage). They probably have private entrances.
Bea has an apartment at St J, as does Princess Anne.

This is a nice video/photo tribute to St. James Palace with a lot of wide-angle shots...the narration is a little strange because of the automated voice but once you get past that it's a very informative video!

Well I'm embarrassed to say that a similar thing happened to me a few years ago at Horse Guard's Parade on the walkway between the parade ground and Whitehall. Alot of of people were walking along and some tourists decided to stop in the middle of everything and all of a sudden the guardsmen appeared walking in file. As I was trying to shove my way out of their path, me and a few other people got the shock of our lives when one of the guardsmen shouted the same thing "Stand clear of the Queen's Guard!!" or "make way for the Queen's Guard!" - something along those lines anyway!

Pity there were no photographs of the interior. That automated voice was pretty strange and unusual

When Charles and Diana got divorced, Charles moved into an apartment at St. James Palace (later his sons lived there with him).

What happened to that apartment? Who has it now?

Queen to rent out Palace for Olympics: Royals will let firms hire St James's Throne Room for £30,000 a day | Mail Online

Queen to rent out Palace for Olympics: Royals will let firms hire St James's Throne Room for £30,000 a day

n a break with nearly 500 years of Royal protocol, St James’s Palace has thrown open the doors to some of its most lavish state apartments for private firms to rent during the London Games. The Queen has personally approved the plans to allow businesses to take their pick of the Palace’s Throne Room, its Tapestry Room and the Queen Anne Room for glamorous parties.

Guests at St James's will enjoy an exclusive tour of the Palace as part of the exclusive celebrations. They will also be close to several key Olympic events, including the Beach Volleyball in Horse Guards Parade, and the marathon, which will start and finish in the Mall. Nearby Hyde Park will be the venue for some swimming events.

One source said: ‘The Palace is exploiting its historical heritage and its prime location. Officials have already begun contacting firms and charities who they think might be interested in using the Palace. 'They are targeting organisations who have an existing link with the Royal Household and that includes those who have Royal Warrants.'

Now, under the hire plan, firms will be able to invite guests to events in the Tapestry Room, which boasts an original Tudor fireplace and a selection of tapestries woven for Charles II, and the Throne Room, which contains a single throne for the reigning Monarch. The third room on offer, the upholstered Queen Anne Room, is dominated by a portrait of George III. Companies can entertain up to 500 guests for lunch, dinner or a drinks reception. It is understood catering will be carried out by Palace staff rather than by private firms.

All the dates are now reportedly sold out after an overwhelming response from big businesses.

St James palace is so beautiful on the inside and love it and learned that it was built for/by king Henry VIII! And guess it's the only Tudor palace that the house of Windsor kept as a using palace, it's the place where place staff live as well as the residence of princess Beatrice of York?

When Prince Henry Frederick, the eldest son of King James I of England, was created Prince of Wales, St. James's Palace was set apart for his residence with a staff of 426 officials.

They lived in a wing called York house. It seems originally some of Charles and Camilla's offices were still there. Not sure if any still are. But it does house the offices for the royal collection trust.

Its good that the Crown Estates are taking a good look and see what needs to be done and actually do it.

Next up: Anne throws up her hands and says "naff off... I'm moving again?"
