I don’t think so. Harry’s office is at KP as well.

The Sussex children won’t have RPOs. Precisely why I think a private garden for them to play in is even more important.

The interview was in the part of KP where they have the offices, not Nottingham Cottage.

Actually, if I'm not mistaken, the Cambridges and the Sussexes have their offices and also meeting rooms that can be used for various purposes at KP and they're actually housed in what was Diana's old apartment. I believe that's where Kate guest edited for the Huffinton Post and there's been various other times these rooms were used.

I am really wishing they would announce their country home. Can we say that they are in fact leasing a country house in the Cotswolds as was reported? Or are we assuming that is bogus?

It was reported that after the tennis match Meghan went to the Cotswolds, so I assume it was off to their country home to meet up with Harry.

So we assume they are indeed leasing a very nice house in the Cotswolds on the SoHo Farm. That's great to hear. It would be very 'stuffy' for Meghan to be stuck at KP while Harry is out-and-about. This way she can do her jogging and swimming and socializing in the country air.

I saw a publication on the newstands entitled Closer (July 16, 2018), with a cover story on the Sussexes, entitled: At Home With Meghan and Harry. It may not be true, but the writer claims that Meghan is busy with decorating plans for their new Apartment 1 at KP. That's likely just speculation since it has not been confirmed that Meghan and Harry are moving into KP Apt. 1.

The article also claims that the Queen gifted M&H York Cottage on the Sandringham estate after their wedding. That doesn't sound accurate either. Aren't the Sussexes planning to move into a home in the Cotswolds?

At the end of the below clip from ABC, royal journalist Omid Mio Scobie says that Meghan is leaning on her closest friends at this time, as she continues to navigate her new life. Scobie also mentions that Jessica flew over recently from Canada, and that Meghan and Harry hosted Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian at their Oxfordshire home.


Have there been any pics of M&H's Oxfordshire home? Are they just renting there for the time being until they are gifted a country home on the Sandringham grounds, or have they purchased a home in Oxfordshire? I would imagine it's being kept quiet where they stay in the country on the weekends in order to maintain their privacy, with all the continued media storm swirling around them.

More speculation about York Cottage being gifted to the Sussexes by the Queen:

Y'know, with all the turmoil that has been going on with Meghan and her estranged family, I don't blame them for keeping *any* information about their private lives securely under wraps. If people don't know where to start hunting them down, the UK is a much bigger place to hide in.

^^ Yes, that's the sad part. Prince Harry, just like his brother, was definitely going to be very protective of his wife and family in any case. But now, the private lives of the Sussexes are going to be kept locked down to an even higher degree. So maybe the York Cottage rumors are intended to throw people off the scent, because Sandringham is private property and isn't easily breached. Omid Scobie let slip something about Oxfordshire, but that could be a temporary Cotswolds rental.

Adelaide Cottage, Windsor - now being reported as the future country home of Harry and Meghan.

Is this Grade II-listed romantic cottage in Windsor the Queen's gift to Harry and Meghan?* | Daily Mail Online

This story actually makes sense. I'm not seeing a downside. It is a great location.

Any one else have more knowledge of this "cottage." Any negatives?

Gilded dolphins on the bedroom ceiling - sounds nice.

Oh who knows what is true at this point! It does make sense IF they want a place larger than Nott Cott but not too far out of London. Supposedly right now they are renting a country home.

I'm gonna say if it is true, they will do some major renovations...they don't seem like gilded dolphin fans to me.

Would they be allowed to change things - the dolphins and gold rope coming from the former Royal yacht, "Royal George"?

Fireplace sounds nice too.


I could see all the "pluses" of the Cotswolds for Meghan, but perhaps the tide is turning - less celebrity mixing and more within the Royal fold.

If I see Meghan wearing that tuxedo on the Oz tour, I'll know she is still calling her own shots.

If not, I'll think the Royal machine has the power after all.

Yes those features could go into storage or wherever...not sure how much call there is now days for gilded dolphins.

I don't think her wearing a trouser suit is that big of a deal...I think most all of the younger royal ladies have worn variations of it..including Diana as I recall.

It's pretty clear she's wearing what she likes to wear to these engagements.

Hard to find pictures of it, but what is shown looks far more agreeable to me than York Cottage on Sandringham. Looks like it already went through renovations in 2015.

Moving is not an IF but a when. Nott's cottage is not reasonable for when they have kids. A nanny is a reality for royals. You cant have a child and a nanny in a 2 bedroom cottage, unless the nanny sleeps in the nursery.

The only question is whether they will have a large London apartment as their main home and maybe a small country home on an estate. Or if they will do like Andrew and Edward and have a huge country home, and just a small apartment in London for work.

Adelaide doesn't seem too large. It would make sense as a small country home for weekends, with a large London base. It is in 'home park' part of Windsor, and near things like Frogmore house which we know they love.

Being a grade II listed building, they would require permission to change any aspects that are historical to the buildling
