There’s a lot happening in the royal household at the moment — a new prince has joined the fold, another royal baby is expected in the coming months (we’re looking at you, Zara Tindall), there are two royal weddings headed our way, and just to add just a little bit more chaos into the mix… a big move has taken place.
The 28-year-old royal and her wine-merchant fiancé now reside in Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace. The stately home, which boasts three bedrooms (that’s right — one more than Harry and Meg’s Nottingham Cottage), is being reported as the couple first shared residence.
Before the move, the royal lived with her older sister, Princess Beatrice, at St. James Palace. Also in the neighborhood: Prince William and Kate Middleton and their ever-expanding brood, who reside in Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace. And a number of Queen Elizabeth‘s cousins. Let’s stop for a moment to imagine the annual street party, shall we?

The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Princess Eugenie to Mr. Jack Brooksbank. Her Royal Highness and Mr. Brooksbank became engaged in Nicaragua earlier this month. The wedding will take place in the Autumn of 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, with further details to be announced in due course.
In the couple’s first-ever joint TV interview conducted at Buckingham Palace, Eugenie and Jack told The One Show‘s Matt Baker it was an “incredible moment.” “The lake was so beautiful, it was a special light, and I even said ‘this is an incredible moment’ and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we had been together seven years. It was the perfect moment because we knew it was going to end up this way. I was over the moon, crying,” Eugenie, who looked resplendent in a recycled floral Erdem dress, explained.
The pair will soon follow in Harry and Meghan’s footsteps, tying the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle this coming October.
