King Charles offices takes initiative to protect Buckingham Palace from major risks

King Charles III's office has given fans a glimpse of Buckingham Palace's protection works in brand new video.

The royal family's social media accounts shared a behind-the-scenes video about protection measures on Thursday.


The amazing video was captioned: "The Reservicing Programme is a ten-year initiative to protect Buckingham Palace from risk of fire or flood, to make it fit for purpose and to preserve this historic building for future generations."

In the video, fans can discover more about "the newly restored East Wing of Buckingham Palace, that will open to visitors for the first time this summer. Special guided tours of the Principal Floor will run throughout July and August.

The East Wing includes the Palace's front façade and central balcony, where the monarch and members of the royal family have gathered for public appearances since 1851. It follows more than five years of improvement works.

Small groups of visitors will be able to visit rooms and spaces including the Principal Corridor, which runs the length of the wing. The East Wing was first occupied by Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their children. It is still used by the royal family for official meetings and events.

The new video has been released after Kate Middleton's appearance on Buckingham Palace balcony. It was Catherine's first official outing in six months.

The Princess of Wales has been undergoing preventative chemotherapy since she announce her cancer diagnosis in March.
