So now that Harry and Meghan are married, where will they live? Well, it sounds like Prince Harry will be taking a page from his big brother's book. Harry and Meghan will set up shop in Nottingham Cottage, a small house on the grounds of the royal estate, Kensington Palace. Though they won't move in right away due to renovations. In the meantime, they will be staying in the Cotswolds, which is about a 90-minute drive from London. The newlyweds have reportedly signed a two-year lease for a home on the Great Tew Estate, which is close by to David and Victoria Beckham's country home.
Nottingham Cottage, a modern two-bedroom starter home, is also where big brother William and his new bride, Kate Middleton, lived until they started their family and moved into a much larger apartment inside Kensington Palace. The palace, located in the Kensington and Chelsea borough of London, has been the royal residence since the 17th century. Currently, it boasts as its residents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (aka William and Kate), Prince Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester (aka Prince Richard, a first cousin to Queen Elizabeth II, and his wife, Birgitte), the Duke and Duchess of Kent (aka Prince Edward, another first cousin of the queen, and his wife, Katharine), and Prince and Princess Michael (aka Prince Michael, another cousin of the queen, and his wife, Marie).
Prince Charles, next in line for the throne and Meghan's father-in-law, and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, do not reside at Kensington Palace. They live in Clarence House, a royal residence that is part of St. James' Palace in the Westminster part of London. The queen also resides in Clarence House, though she does stay in Buckingham Palace, which is the administrative headquarters of the Crown, quite a lot. Her children Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, and Edward's wife, Sophie, also live in Buckingham Palace.
So that's the scoop on the royal family's houses. But the Nottingham Post would like everyone to know that Prince Harry and Meghan are not moving to Nottingham, a city in the East Midlands that is actually about three hours from London. Apparently there was some confusion about that.
