While we are still coming down from the high of the spectacular wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle I thought it would be fun to look at where the newest Duchess lived prior to the wedding and where she lives now (and gossip on where she will live next!!)
Prior to the wedding, Meghan Markle had been living abroad in Toronto because the filming of her TV show, Suits, is located in that Canadian city. She owned and decorated a lovely home (sold recently for a cool $1.6 million!!) As you can see from the photos, her own style is clean, neutral, extremely approachable and livable……will be interesting to see how she incorporates these styles in the inherently stuffier confines of palace living!!
As most bride to be’s stay with their mother for the night before the big day, Meghan and her mother, Doria, were treated royally by staying at the fabulous Clivedon House in London. It is said that they stayed in the Lady Astor Suite. As you can see, this is a preview of what Miss Markle could get used to after the wedding!!
After the most fabulous wedding, the newly dubbed Duke and Duchess of Sussex began living together in the Nottingham Cottage in Kensington Palace. Price Harry had been living here prior to the wedding so no doubt Meghan had the lay of the land as it is a small house (2 bedroom, 1 bath) within the grounds of Kensington Palace……they came out of the Cottage and walked through the gardens for their engagement announcement!
The rumors are abuzz as to where they will land next….William and Kate also lived in Nottingham Cottage after their wedding for a few years. Odds are that they will move into Kensington Palace into one of the very large apartments. William and Kate’s apartment, known as 1A, has a similar apartment next door, known as 1……in case any of you are picturing a traditional apartment this one reportedly has 21 rooms! There are very few photos of the interiors of these apartments but luckily when William and Kate entertained the Obama’s a few were taken! As you can see, these apartments are clearly fit for future Kings and Queens! One can only hope that if Harry and Meghan do move into apartment 1 that she will share some images of the wonderful rooms!
