By now, the whole world would have witnessed the grand Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Naturally, everyone would be curious as to where the Royal newlyweds will be residing.

According to this article from Forbes.com, Clarence House has confirmed that the couple will live at Nottingham Cottage (above, original photo attributed to Snowdon) in Kensington Palace after the wedding. Prince Harry has been living in the two-bedroom, one-bathroom home since 2013, and Meghan moved in after getting engaged last November, 2017. 

“Nott-Cott,” as it is affectionately called, is rather snug at 1,300 square feet or 396sqm (for Royals, at least), and is one of the smallest homes within the grounds of Kensington Palace (main photo, above right), where other Royals reside, among them the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (who now live in Apartment 1A within the palace), Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester. One of the more famous past residents of Kensington was Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, who lived here after her divorce from Prince Charles.

The modest but historical cottage dates from 1689, bought by King William III and Queen Mary II. It was then renovated later on by the Sir Christopher Wren, the acclaimed architect noted for rebuilding London after the Great Fire of 1666. Wren’s most famous building is St. Paul’s Cathedral (above), which is incidentally where Harry’s parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana were married. Other famous Wren-designed buildings include Hampton Court Palace, buildings in Oxford University, and Trinity College in Cambridge.


We have yet to find out how the Royal couple will decorate their newlywed’s nest, but we could take a guess that it will be classical and tasteful, judging from the screenshots from Meghan’s now-defunct Instagram account. The actress has a fondness for French-style mirrors, a neutral palette of cream and dove gray, Diptyque candles, and pink peonies.
