It looks like the royal family is doing some house swapping! According to the Daily Mail, Prince Charles will move into Buckingham Palace, as he is "firmly of the view that it's the visible symbol of the monarchy in the capital and therefore must be his home," the outlet reported.

Meanwhile, an insider believes Charles, 73, won't move into the palace until he takes the throne. "There is no question about it," they stated. "HRH's view is that you need a monarch at monarchy HQ. This has never been in doubt. Just like the Queen, it will effectively be in the 'flat above the shop.' He feels it is right, just as the Queen does, to work out of Buckingham Palace."

If Prince Charles moves to Buckingham, then Prince William and Kate Middleton may inherit Windsor Castle as their home. The duo currently live and work at Kensington Palace, which they moved into in 2017.

As The Royal Observer previously reported, there are rumors swirling that the mom-of-three, 40, and her husband, 39, want to uproot their lives.

"Their London circle is aghast – what’s wrong with Anmer Hall, their 10-bedroom weekend house in Norfolk?" a source shared with The Telegraph. "And so, too, are their green-welly friends, who consider this corner of Berkshire as not proper countryside and horribly naff."

"It’s picturesque," the source added. "And also meaningfully close to town, unlike other parts of the Home Counties."

Their move not only could benefit their family, but it would be a chance to be closer to Queen Elizabeth.

"Since the Megxit moment of almost 18 months ago, the Cambridges have been trying to redefine themselves and elevate their public images. The problem with being at Anmer Hall was that they were pretty out of the public eye," Dr. Ed Owens explained. "Obviously they’ve always had their apartments at Kensington Palace, that’s been their London base, but moving to the South East and the Windsor area represents an opportunity to elevate their public image, to make themselves more visible."

He continued, "They’re clearly trying to associate themselves with the Queen, present themselves as supportive individuals and also associate themselves with this very historic site that’s been important for the monarchy for a long time."
