After their death, the estate was passed on to Queen Elizabeth. There were some plans were made to demolish the house completely and rebuild it with a more modern structure. But, nothing was ever acted upon and Sandringham remained the same.

This includes gamekeepers, gardeners, farmers, and those who work in Sandringham’s sawmill and also its apple juice pressing plant. This place gives a huge emphasis on recycling, conservation, forestry and is a sanctuary for wildlife.
