King Charles III has access to some of the UK’s most prestigious royal residences. However, his primary home with Queen Camilla remains Clarence House in London.

Clarence House was originally constructed between 1825-1827 for the Duke of Clarence, who later became King William IV. The stately four-story building has since served as a significant royal residence.

King Charles first lived at Clarence House in 1948 before moving out when his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth II, ascended the throne in 1952. He returned in 2003 and has since established it as his official residence with Queen Camilla.

Despite the tradition of monarchs residing at Buckingham Palace, Clarence House has remained King Charles’ main home.

The residence has undergone extensive renovations, particularly after sustaining damage during World War II bombings.

During the war, Clarence House even served as headquarters for the Red Cross and St. John Ambulance Brigade. Today, it is a Grade I listed building on the National Heritage List for England, opening to the public for about a month each summer.

In addition to Clarence House, King Charles utilizes several other royal properties across the UK for official duties, including Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral, and more.

He and Queen Camilla plan to continue residing at their primary residence of Clarence House at least until 2027, during renovations at Buckingham Palace.
