The most popular royal couple are thinking of making another move! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are hoping to relocate from central London to the idyllic Cotswolds, according to new reports. According to The Sun, the engaged couple has their eyes on Beaconsfield Farm, a run-down farmhouse built on the site of an old Roman villa in the village of Great Tew, which is about five miles from Chipping Norton.
Should Harry and Meghan choose to make the move, they could count David and Victoria Beckham among their near(ish) neighbors: the power couple bought a $7 million barn house early last year, and have since been carrying out renovations on the property. According to locals, though, they’d have to spend some time giving the property (which recently reverted back to the Great Tew Estate after the previous occupants moved away) a complete overhaul before they could actually live there.

“The understanding is that Harry’s seriously thinking of taking on Beaconsfield Farm. It’s a right old mess at the moment though — it’s full of mud. It’s a couple of barns I think. He’ll have to do it up,” one local resident told The Sun.
“All I know is Harry is buying in the area. I wouldn’t want to say anything more than that,” another added. Kensington Palace has not yet commented on the rumored move.
The property is also a short jaunt from celebrity hangout Soho Farmhouse, which Harry and Meghan are thought to have visited a handful of times in the formative stages of their relationship.
The couple currently live at Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace, the two-bedroom property where Harry’s older brother William and his wife Kate moved after their 2011 wedding, staying there until the arrival of their first child Prince George in 2013.
