King Charles' underground bunker
As of now, King Charles and Queen Camilla are still living at Clarence House. However, the Royal couple may move to Buckingham Palace later in the year once the renovations are finished.
According to Historic Cornwall, it is more than likely that the King has a secret room, underground, for safety reasons. Reports suggest that the room is accessible by a secret lift. The room is said to have vault-like doors to keep those inside safe. Historic Cornwall wrote:
When Cold War fears first started to rise after the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, the castle converted an underground coal cellar into a nuclear bunker beneath the staterooms.
It sure sounds like this secret room is somewhat of a bunker that could protect the monarch from any nuclear incidents.
In fact, London is full of underground bunkers and tunnels. As reported by Hello Magazine, many important buildings in the UK repurposed their coal cellars into bunkers during the Cold War.
Secret rooms in King Charles’ country home
As many know, Buckingham Palace isn’t the King’s only residence, he also has a plethora of homes in the countryside.
In King Charles’ Highgrove House, there is a panic room. There is a slim chance that this room will ever be photographed and shown to the public for safety reasons, there are a lot of speculations as to what is in this room.
Naturally, there will be food supplies in this panic room, but there could also be blood supplies that would match King Charles and Queen Camilla’s blood type.
