Hey luvcharles,

Now that William and Catherine are P/POW do they also ‘own’ High Grove?

If so I wonder if they will give up Anmer and use HG as their getaway home now that they’ll have priority at Sandringham if Charles decides to continue having Christmas there

I wondered this too - but surely the King will continue his projects?

I read that William, as Duke of Cornwall, owns Highgrove now and if Charles chooses to stay, he will be Williams tenant.

Didn’t the Queen herself set the precedent by referring to “Princess Diana”?

I don;t think she ever did that

You may well be right and I may have a false memory… yes, it was Tony Blair!

It is a good think Kate and William like moving houses, because I presume the wallpaper in Adelaide is not even dry and they will have to think hard and fast, if this is the best way forward. I imagine, they were somewhat fooled just like the public into thinking the Queen would go on forever and they would have another 5+ years before the move into PoWcamps was necessary.
I am happy as well, that Charles seems to forgo the standard: let the public and media guess - we move when we want.
He is making very quick decisions (although I suspect he had a looong time to think about this) and we were not left guessing and speculating what's his reagal name would be, when he would make William PoW etc. I also presume, that decisions about his official residence, his office etc (all long and excessively speculated upon) are announced just as quickly. So will be informed about him either moving into BuckHouse or staying at CH and turning BH into an office and reception locations.

Yes William now owns Highgrove - not because he is Prince of Wales but because he is Duke of Cornwall. I suspect however that Charles will continue to live there as he has a 'lifetime' lease I believe.

William's property portfolio is now massive including one of my favourite places in the world - The Oval Cricket Ground. On Thursday the two captains went out and tossed the coin to decide who will bat first. At that time Charles 'owned' the ground. Shortly after the toss the weather changed and the entire day was washed out. As a mark of respect Day 2 was cancelled and later today, when Day 3 begins the ground will have a new owner - William.

The Duchy owns Highgrove ... and it is likely that Charles will continue to live there for as long as he wants. In time William might move there but how close is it to the new school? Clearly the new status of William and presumably a heavier workload may mean Adelaide cottage is not big enough but I’d be surprised if there are any residence changes this year

Highgrove is in Gloucestershire and Windsor is about 67 km away (I actually looked up the distance from Tetbury, the village closest to Highgrove). It wouldn't be feasible for the Wales' to move there and have the children go to school in Windsor.

Highgrove is so incredibly personal to Charles that I can't see William and Charles ever living there.

Sorry I didn't mean to imply that Charles and William would both live there.

Someone upthread mused that maybe William would move there and wondered how far it would be for the kids going to school.

I don't see the Wales' making another move before William becomes King.

I do see Charles continuing to spend as much time as possible at Highgrove and Birkhall, as he has done as Prince of Wales.

I wonder if they'll stay at Adelaide Cottage but maybe use Windsor Castle more for meetings, audiences etc. It actually would work well as the children can remain in their private house but W&C can, just a few minutes away, have a place to work (as well as KP)

Sorry - typo, I meant William and Kate. It's taking me a while not to type "The Cambridges"

The Duchy of Cornwall owns Highgrove https://duchyofcornwall.org/high-grove.html. William is the Duke of Cornwall. Unless the Duchy sells it to Charles, it’s William’s.

I like the new king's energy. He has been sitting on plans for a while and thought things through. No funny business just getting it done.

Yep. I believe as said above, his reign will be informed by both vision and duty.

It’s not like he’s an entirely unknown quantity. I’m glad that ideas he had that were considered radical at the time, have had 30+ years to simmer and marinate and will likely be more accepted now.

I’m so grateful Camilla is with him.
