kids' book in which princess and family move out of castle and have to rent all houses on a street to hold their stuff

I am looking for a chapter book I read as a kid in the 1970s/1980s in which a princess and her family have to move out of their ancestral home and instead rent all the houses on a street to hold all their things that used to be in the castle. It was kind of an adventure/mystery story after that, I think involving something with the family possessions. Anyone know the title of this book please?

Operation Peeg (Jane's Adventures on the Island of Peeg) by Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy starts with Jane and her family moving out of a castle and into a whole row of council homes. After the first scene, though, Jane goes away to boarding school and the adventure takes place there. But he also wrote other Jane books, all adventures, so if you mix up parts from a couple of them then you have everything.
