All About Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s New 21-Room Home at Kensington Palace

Last year, it came to light that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would move into Apartment 1, a 21-bedroom mansion on the west side of Kensington Palace. Not without some work, however: Scaffolding soon encapsulated the space, where it remained for months on end while the royal couple continued to live in the two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage on the compound grounds.

But now it looks like moving day might be just around the corner.

A new report says that Apartment 1 is finally ready for the couple to live in. This comes after an alleged $1.8 million renovation during which the roof and windows were repaired and other updates were made.

So what can Harry and Meghan expect from their new digs?

First, even closer proximity to Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their three children. The Cambridges live in the neighboring Apartment 1A, and there’s reportedly a shared door between the two. (That’s because, once upon a time, Apartment 1A and 1 added up to one big residence. In the 1950s, it was split into two.)

The previous residents were the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, who will now move to a smaller apartment within Kensington Palace.

There’s no doubt that Meghan will also want to put her own touches on the home. It’s reported that the Duchess loves candles and a cozy throw. She’s also got a California-cool decor style: In a cover story for Vanity Fair, writer Sam Kashner had this to report: “She has tried to make her Canadian house look like a California bungalow, exposing the hardwood floors and letting in as much light as possible.”

Los Angeles meets London? An intriguing decor mash-up indeed.
