Since the Harry and Meghan interview broadcast, the internet has been awash with what to do with Buckingham Palace when the monarchy is eventually abolished.

Issues covered in the interview with Oprah Winfrey included a number of serious topics such as thoughts of suicide, racism within the royal family and an onslaught of press intrusion led to calls to get rid of the monarchy.

In true Twitter style, this led to a meme trying to answer the question about what to do with the Queen’s main London residence as the palace is in fact a prime piece of London real estate, sitting on the corner of picturesque St James’ Park, right near all the sights that the centre of the capital has to offer, meaning there is no end to creative suggestions for its new use.

Here are some of the best proposals for Buckingham Palace.

A Tesco Extra

A Greggs

An Aldi

A gay bar

A featured property on Netflix’s Selling Sunset

Social housing or a homeless shelter

A fancy dress costume shop

A Wetherspoons pub

A laser quest arena

A B&M Home Bargains

All of the above
