According to news sources, The Queen may be forced to leave Buckingham Palace temporarily this summer whilst £150 million worth of refurbishment work takes place to restore the exterior and interior of the building.

The revitalization of the royal dwelling would see improvements to the palaces plumbing system, which has been deemed unlikely to be “energy efficient”, as well as the removal of a significant amount of asbestos from its basement.

The famous landmark routinely hosts a number of gatherings, charity receptions and garden parties. Over 1,500 people are invited from around 130 countries to the grounds each year, including members of the British government, past Prime Ministers, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and other public figures.

With the monarchy on the look out for temporary accommodation, we have decided to find the Top 5 The House Shop properties we believe are fit for a queen.
