Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to be given this stately home by Queen as a wedding gift
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will marry on May 19. In March an expert told Express that Suits actress and Harry may be given York Cottage. Now another expert is claiming the newly weds will get the lavish gift too.
Queen Elizabeth II looks likely to give Prince Harry, 33, and Meghan Markle, 36, a stately home as a gift.
She has previously bequeathed Anmer Hall in the Sandringham estate to Prince William, 35, and Kate Middleton, 36.
Now it appears she may well give Harry and Meghan a country house on the royal estate too.
Royal finance expert David McClure told Cosmopolitan: “William got a place on the Sandringham estate at Anmer and my hunch is that if he (Harry) gets a place in the country, he and Meghan might want to be nearer London and as such somewhere in the Home Counties might be preferable.
“The Queen has a habit of giving property.”
He added: “There’s every chance that Harry and Meghan might find themselves the proud owners of a nice property outside of London.”
Currently Meghan and Harry live in Nottingham Cottage, a small residence in Kensington Palace.
Kate and William also live on the property in Kensington Palace with their children Prince George, four, Princess Charlotte, two, and Prince Louis, born last week.
Royal expert and managing editor of DailyBreak Kelly Lynch told Express.co.uk: “I’m not certain how many other homes are on the Sandringham Estate but I wouldn’t be surprised if one was gifted to Harry and Meghan.
“Especially given the fact that the royals spend Christmas at Sandringham.”
Queen will give Meghan Markle and Prince Harry York Cottage as a royal wedding gift, expert claims
York Cottage sits on Sandringham Estate. It is currently used as the estate’s office, but it could be repurposed into a home, where Meghan and Harry could be near Kate, William and their children.
Kelly added: “I will say that having homes near one another at Sandringham wouldn’t surprise me, since William and Harry are very close and I’m sure would want their children to grow up together.”
What Prince Harry thinks of Meghan Markle’s parents was revealed in a touching moment from an interview many might have missed.
It is up to speculation as to whether her father, Thomas Markle Sr, who lives in Mexico, will be walking his actor daughter down the aisle.
On the other hand it is widely expected that her mother, social worker and therapist Doria Ragland, will be at the event.
Other aspects of the wedding has been cause for much speculation, including Meghan Markle’s wedding dress.
One of the world’s premiere wedding gown designers Vera Wang, 68, from New York, has revealed her predictions for the dress.
She believes Meghan’s gown will be ‘subtler’ that Kate Middleton’s and Princess Diana’s.
Other famous women who have worn Vera Wang wedding dresses include Ivanka Trump, Kim Kardashian, Chelsea Clinton and Victoria Beckham – a friend of Meghan’s, according to reports.
Wang predicted that Meghan would wear a British designer.
