Just more Daily Mail click bait. No evidence that the Cambridges are involved. Building a multiple story basement under the Orangery isn't something that will be done in a couple of months.

It's saying something when Sebastian is the more believable article.

Yes he mentioned the Cambridges to get clicks, but he went on to explain in the article about the reasoning. And who was behind the work. The daily mail has glossed over those little facts this time.

There are 'two' Kensington Palaces.

There's the part administered by the Royal Household, where the Cambridges, Kents, Gloucesters and Harry live and there's the public spaces administered by Historic Royal Palaces, a registered charity.

It's HRP who submitted the application for the renovations. It's to house a dress collection and staff of the charity.

agreed - click bait at its worst - so many things wrong with that Headline - its not even the palace Gardens, its the public gardens - but you must consider the source.

The article aLso shows the white memorial garden this spring - as the tulips bloomed. My inner gardener really wishes someone has been photographing that white garden as the floral year has progressed and that we will get to see the blooms over time. I know, when pigs fly, but I do wish...

I did think it so cute how they called it "Our cottage" in the engagement interview.

Like some of us suspected, they've known where this was headed for a long time ...they are well into the stage of 'ours'.

Do you think Harry and Meghan will have a bigger place at Kensington Palace when their family grows?


What is the building on the right of Nottingham cottage in the aereal pics?
It's larger separate from the other buildings and has a garden.

Interesting article. That's quite the spread William and Kate have. Will the Gloucesters shift elsewhere and turn theirs over to Harry and Meghan? I've seen discussions here about the Kents being moved around too.

Very interesting and what fun it would be to decorate! I think our couple will stay in their cottage until they have kids which I think will be soon. If they do take a bigger apartment at least they’re close to oversee things.

Looks like Apt 1 where the Gloucesters live will be receiving some repair/replacement work in the upcoming months.

The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester live next-door to the Cambridges in Apartment 1, a sprawling 21-bedroom home. It was reported earlier this year in the Sunday Express that the Gloucesters’ apartment will be refurbished soon, with a new roof and new windows.

Thanks for the share. I had not heard about the damp in Ivy cottage.
