The Queen’s house may be getting a makeover that could cost the UK Government more than £369 million!
The huge sum of money will be spent on Buckingham Palace as part of a ten-year refurbishment plan. Old brickwork needs restoring, and wiring and pipes which are more than 60 years old will be replaced, in a bid to reduce fire and flood risks.
The final decision on whether the work goes ahead will be made by Parliament in March, with the first stage of construction due to start in April 2017.
The palace is the Queen’s main home and she plans to stay there while the work takes place. The 775-room building has been the home of the UK’s kings and queens since 1837.
