Prince George and Princess Charlotte – children of Kate Middleton and Prince William – may be royals, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be following every tradition from the family.
Over the years, all the royals have broken rules and traditions for different reasons – including bride-to-be and Prince Harry’s fiancé Meghan Markle.
And it appears another one will be broken in the future – monarchs living in Buckingham Palace.
Queen Victoria was the first to live in the iconic building in London in 1837, which has since created a tradition for other rulers to follow since.

However, Prince Charles – who is first in line to the throne – will not be settling in the Palace when he becomes King, it is reported.
It has been reported by GoodtoKnow that the Palace is: “Too large and costly for modern life.”
With 775 rooms, we can believe that easily.
It is believed Prince Charles and his wife Camilla will continue their lives in Clarence House – where they’ve lived for 15 years – when the 69 year old becomes King.

It has been reported that Prince Charles is happy for Buckingham Palace to become a ‘monarchy HQ’ which will not be lived in, but used for official events and business.
With this in mind, if Prince Charles doesn’t settle in the Palace, it’s doubtful Prince George and Princess Charlotte will, with the royal family encouraging modern life more.
In other royal news, it was recently revealed that Prince Harry will be marrying Suits actress Meghan Markle in May 2018.
