The Sunday Times’ source said: “I know he is no fan of 'the big house', as he calls the palace, he doesn't see it as a viable future home or a house that's fit for purpose in the modern world. He feels its upkeep, both from a cost and environmental perspective, is not sustainable." As long as the Queen is still in residence though, no changes are expected to the running of the palace.
