Prince William and Kate Middleton could move to Buckingham Palace before the Duke of Cambridge ascends to the throne, a royal expert has claimed.

As Prince Charles and Camilla are due to stay at Clarence House, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge could move out of their current living quarters in Kensington Palace for the esteemed Buckingham Palace which has traditionally housed the monarch.

Royal expert Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon said: "The family could actually move to Buckingham Palace before William becomes king."

Dixon said it had become more likely that the Cambridge family would change residence in a move at odds with tradition given reports that they had considered moving during the pandemic.

Last month, however, The Sunday Times reported that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge could be asked to spend more time in Balmoral in an effort to strengthen the relationship between Scotland and England.

The pair would be required to draw on their ties to St Andrews, having studied there, amid the increasing possibility of another Scottish independence referendum.

The Royal Family's residences have increasingly become a point of conversation in recent times in light of Meghan and Prince Harry's decision to move from Frogmore Cottage to California and pay back the expenses spent on decorating their former UK residence.

And in another surprising move, Prince Charles has said that intends "to open up royal palaces to the public when he becomes King".

In a bid to modernise the Royal Family, Charles reportedly wishes to transform properties like Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle from "private spaces to public places" making them open more widely and for longer periods of time, the Sunday Times reports.
