Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will live at Kensington Palace after the Royal Wedding

When Prince Harry got down on one knee and proposed to Meghan Markle, he did so at their “cosy cottage” at Kensington Palace.

After they tie the knot on Saturday at Windsor Castle, the couple will forgo a honeymoon and instead return to their two-bedroom residence, Nottingham Cottage, to begin married life.

They've got some pretty impressive neighbours too, according to 9Honey Royal Commentator Victoria Arbiter.

"I’ve always thought of Kensington Palace as something of the Melrose Place of the royals,” she says.

The Palace is home to quite a few members of the royal family.

Victoria says that’s because it’s the most family oriented of all the royal residences.

"(Here) we can glimpse William and Kate’s mansion. It’s called an apartment – but let’s face it – it’s a mansion. That’s where they live with George, Charlotte and Louis."

Princess Eugenie and her fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, have recently moved into Ivy Cottage. Prince and Princess Michael of Kent also live on the grounds.

Of all the royal residences at Kensington Palace, it would appear Harry and Meghan live in the smallest home.

Surely this won’t do if the world is waiting for news of a royal pregnancy?

"It’s a wonderful little love nest when you’re newlyweds. Certainly, when they start thinking about having a family they are going to need more space,” she says.

One option would be his late mother’s former home at Kensington Palace, which remains empty.

"It’s being used as storage rooms and as offices. It’s possible that that will be made available to Harry, but then you’d have to wonder, is that going to be somewhere that he’d very much like to move into or is it going to hold too many ghosts and too many childhood memories?" Victoria questions.
