With the recent official announcement of the engagement of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle, the whole world is abuzz about the next grand royal wedding after Prince William and Kate.

Naturally, you’d wonder where the couple would live in England, and according to this story from Fortune.com, it would be in Nottingham Cottage, a 1,300sqft (396sqm), two-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage on the Kensington Palace grounds in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London, England. There is no official statement yet on where the couple will reside as husband and wife after their spring wedding in 2018.

Prince Harry had resided in the cottage as a bachelor for quite a number of years now, and many consider it as the royal bachelor pad. A two-BR cottage for a royal couple, you say? Don’t sniff at it, because “Nott Cott” had also been the residence of another famous royal couple, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate), prior to their wedding in 2011.

The Princes William and Harry grew up at Kensington Palace, as this had been the official residence of the late Princess Diana, even after her divorce from Prince Charles (it was on the front gates of Kensington where mourners laid thousands of bouquets after her death). William and Kate now reside in one the apartments within the palace, as do the Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, the Duke and Duchess of Kent, and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

It’s definitely a grand, royal residence, as seen in these photos of the fairy-tale-like garden (above), and the ornate trompe-l’oeil murals (below), and we think living in a cottage there is not shabby at all.

Kensington Palace started out as Jacobean mansion in 1605; and was expanded further with buildings by the famous architect Sir Christopher Wren. It was damaged during the bombing blitz of World War II, and fell into disrepair after that. The palace staterooms were eventually restored to its former glory and were reopened in 2012. Part of the palace serves as a museum that can be visited by tourists.

And you can even have tea there even if you’re not a royal. The Orangery (above), a 300-year-old garden structure within the grounds, was converted into a place where visitors can have breakfast or afternoon tea, and as a venue for special events.
