Byline: ADDITIONAL REPORTING BY JOHN SHAW

THE Queen may have to move out of Buckingham Palace to allow PS150million of maintenance work to be carried out - you can only imagine how much headshaking the builder did before reaching that estimate.

The figure would have been even higher had Prince Philip not agreed to do all the plastering himself.

Some are outraged at the temporary evacuation of Buck House, which has 775 rooms, claiming it is a clever royal ruse to avoid paying the bedroom tax. There is also a real danger that, once out, Prince Charles won't let her back in.

While searching for temporary accommodation, Her Maj was warned by her advisers to avoid ghettoes, but she is adamant she will keep eating them.

I'm not saying she's posh, but she gets her Venetian blinds directly from Venice.

Even though the royals have their critics, people flock from all corners of the world to get a glimpse of the Palace - especially now that Alan Pardew has taken over.

Ladbrokes are betting on where the Queen will stay when Buck Palace is being renovated. Windsor Castle is the 1-3 favourite, with a Travelodge a 5,000-1 shot.

It's gonna have to be somewhere grand, somewhere posh, somewhere the residents get out of the bath for a pee - that puts a dampener on my hopes of hosting Her Maj, and also a dampener on the bathroom floor.
