King Charles will be moving into Buckingham Palace 

Will King Charles be moving now that he's the monarch?

HELLO!'s royal editor, Emily Nash, reports Charles' plans in the new issue of HELLO! magazine.

"Other arrangements the King is making include decisions on the royal residences – he will remain at Clarence House before eventually moving into Buckingham Palace after the partial completion of reservicing work next spring," Emily wrote.

It was previously reported that the King and Queen Consort Camilla wouldn't relocate until the work was completely finished. However, the ten-year project is not expected to be finished until 2027, so Charles and Camilla were no doubt keen to move in before then.
