“There are more than 20 royal residences and we pay for round the clock. There is some question over who owns Balmoral and Sandringham, it is sufficiently recognised that they are private properties, but they bought them with our money,” he shared.
He also told Express that Buckingham Palace could be a world-class tourist destination as an art gallery or museum if they opened up all the rooms and the gardens to tourists all year round.

security for all of them, that needs to come to an end.
The Republic CEO did not mince words as he bluntly stated that they do not owe Prince Andrew or Prince Edward a house, they can go and get their own homes.
