Buckingham Palace, a 315-year-old building, is getting a little facelift, and one royal couldn’t be more pleased.
If we learned anything from the first season of The Crown, it’s that Prince Philip has a knack for home design. So it only makes sense that, according to Daily Mail correspondent Rebecca English, Philip is the royal most excited (and pragmatic) about the renovation.
English explained via Twitter that Philip has “taken great interest in the refurbishment” and even told the team handling the mammoth task that he thinks a tiered approach will work best because they’ll “learn by their mistakes.”
He and his beloved (aka Queen Elizabeth) reportedly won’t relocate from the North Wing of the palace until 2025, but the queen is quoted as having told palace aids, “Just tell me where you want me to go.”
Royals, they redecorate just like us…but on a way larger scale.
