This week's question: King Charles III reportedly will seek a "slimmed-down" British monarchy, with fewer royals and less emphasis on pomp, pageantry, and ostentatious displays of inherited wealth. If he were to apply this principle to a remodeled Buckingham Palace, what should he rename a more modest royal residence?
