Charles hopes to increase receptions and events for the public hosted at Buckingham Palace. 

A source said: "The King sees the palace as somewhere that should be more open to the public and particularly to celebrate national events, not as a mausoleum.

"The King and Queen Consort both like the idea that more members of the British public are involved."
