The Prince of Wales has plans to open royal homes more to the public when he becomes king.

Prince Charles is reportedly planning to open up more areas of current royal residents – including Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral, Sandringham and Clarence House – when he takes to the throne with the blessing of his mother Queen Elizabeth, as well as consulting his son The Duke of Cambridge and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Speaking to The Sunday Times newspaper, a royal source explained: “The prince wants to bring people in to connect with the institution. He recognises it needs to keep evolving, and in the modern era people want to be able to access their palaces.

“He embraces that and sees them as public places more than private spaces.”

Meanwhile, it was revealed William “respects protocol” but plans to “modernise” certain aspects of the British royal family and make it “more relatable” when he becomes King.

The 38-year-old royal is making plans with his wife Catherine as to how the monarchy can be changed to become more relatable to the public and do away with some outdated protocol.

A source shared: “William is already thinking about the future of the Monarchy and the changes he’ll make. While he respects protocol, he plans to modernise some aspects and is making it his mission to be more relatable than previous generations …

“He and Kate have successfully created a healthy balance of openness [in the public eye] while maintaining the sense of mystery that surrounds the royal family and keeps us engaged. William accepts that being in the spotlight is part of the job, and is fine with it. He takes his future role as King and seriously and sees at as a great honour and privilege to be in his position. The monarchy and his family will always come first.”
