Longstanding rumours have suggested that the Prince of Wales and Camilla want to stay in the four-storey Westminster mansion.

Charles and his wife are said to be ‘very comfortable’ at their current lodgings and loathe to move to ‘the big house’.

However, it now appears they will follow tradition and move into Buckingham Palace.

A Clarence House spokesman said: ‘Buckingham Palace will remain the official London residence of the monarch’.

A senior royal aide categorically has ruled out the prince staying at Clarence House in any capacity once he accedes to the throne.

Prince William and Kate will are unlikely to occupy Clarence House after Charles’ departure, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge insisting they will remain in Kensington Palace until he becomes monarch.

This would leave it free for Harry and Meghan, who have been in a relationship for more than a year and are tipped to become engaged soon.

Until such a move takes place, Harry and Meghan are likely to live in his current home, Nottingham Cottage, a two-bed house on the grounds of Kensington Palace.

Clarence House was built between 1825 and 1827 to the designs of John Nash for Prince William Henry, Duke of Clarence, who lived there as King William IV from 1830 until 1837.

It was occupied for nearly 50 years by the Queen Mother until her death in 2002, with Charles and Camilla moving in 2003, on what would have been his grandmother’s 103rd birthday.
