What a generous grandmother! Queen Elizabeth has reportedly given Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a very special gift. According to the Daily Mail, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex can now call Adelaide Cottage at Windsor Castle their new home!
A source told the news outlet that Elizabeth, 92, “offered the Grade II listed property to the newlyweds as a gift. The royal duo allegedly “had a viewing, liked it and will move in soon.” Adelaide Cottage was previously home to the late Princess Margaret’s ex-lover Peter Townsend.
We can’t blame them for liking it —the property sounds absolutely amazing! The insider shared, “There are seven gated entrances and exits to Windsor Castle so the newlyweds could come and go without worrying about being photographed.”
And their private space will be extra special as well. “The main bedroom in the generously sized cottage boasts a coved ceiling with gilded dolphins and rope ornament from a 19th Century Royal yacht. There is also a marble Graeco-Egyptian fireplace,” the source added. Kensington Palace has not yet commented on the news.
This isn’t the first home Elizabeth has gifted the newlyweds following their wedding on May 19. It was previously rumored that the British monarch gifted Harry and Meghan York Hall at Sandringham Estate (when Prince William and Kate Middleton wed in April 2011, they received Amner Hall at Sandringham Estate).
Harry and Meghan additionally live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace right near Kate and Will. But that doesn’t mean royal fans weren’t anticipating a third home for the husband and wife. “I wouldn’t rule out any available homes in Windsor, as that will be where Harry and Meghan will wed,” royal expert Kelly Lynch told the Express shared before they tied the knot. We’ll just be waiting for our invite!
