But if the "queen treats all her grandchildren the same", then if Eugenie and others pay commercial rent, so should Harry

And Charles, when monarch, will be fine with one son, the heir, having two large homes due to his position, and his other son crammed in in a two bedroom cottage at KP with his family, and/or buying his own property somewhere with his own money? Somehow, I can't see Charles not assisting his younger son with accommodation, somehow!

According to Andrew who is in competition with Harry for his own daughterís wedding. Look, I do think the Queen treats her grandchildren the same in that they are all her grandchildren and she loves them. But she is also the monarch when it comes to working royals. And thatís not the same. If she does indeed treat ALL of her grandchildren the same, then William should pay rent too. Or is it only Harry that should get the short end of the stick?

Everything we have learnt about Charles recently tells us that there is no way that he will not assist Harry and his grandchildren by Harry and Meghan in any way he can. I for one can't believe that some planning wasn't in the works for what will happen to Harry's family in terms of accommodations.

Obviously William is going to have a bigger slice. However, I highly doubt Charles is ok to just leave his younger son without proper accommodation while expect his and his wife to work hard to support the monarchy.

He may well feel that that's just the way things are... just as he had the Duchy of Cornwall, while Andrew had little more than his Naval salary as a young man...

Yes, but Harry is Charles's son, one of just two, not a very much younger brother who was helped with accommodation by the Queen anyway.

Charles is not the Queen and he only has 2 children not 4....he will do things his own way. I've seen nothing indicating he won't (and he's likely already got things in place) make sure Harry and his family have whatever they need.

I don't know what he'll do.. but he may feel that Harry has his own money and he can find himself a house...Andrew had nothing much when he married and neither had Sarh. But I understood that Meghan is quite well off in her own right....

Then he shouldíve told both of them that they wonít be working royals and are expected to find careers to support themselves. As it stands, not only did Harry give up his military career, but Meghan had to give up her well paid career as well.

Exactly. And as I pointed out, Harry is in the same position as Anne, Andrew and Edward. Their mother and brother is/will be the monarch. Harry’s father and brother will be King. They got homes supplied, I think Harry will as well. I am sure various places have been/are being discussed as a suitable home.

And even though Harry has inherited wealth, spending a lot of his principle on the purchase and upkeep of an estate might not be prudent. As you say, he can’t earn money in a career to replace it.

The longer they go without buying something ....the more I wonder if they are waiting for something to come open or be constructed/remodeled on one of the existing properties owned by the Queen/Crown. I don't see them renting something in the Cotswolds for a long time.

William and Catherine started in Nott Cott as well, so I don't understand the whole discussion about Harry and Meghan being shortchanged. I fully expect them to be provided with a place to live thoughout their life times . If they want any additional housing either in the UK or abroad they can take care of that themselves.

So, Harry will not be treated like his cousins (who are only grandchildren of a monarch, not a child and brother of future monarchs) nor like his brother - he is in a unique position as the only sibling of a future monarch and the way his housing situation will be treated will reflect that.

The shortchanged conversation comes from someone suggesting that the Queen treats her grandchildren the same, as this Harry ought to be treated the same as his non working royal cousins, which is not be provided with a proper residence.

I daresay Charles knows what he's doing.....

I am sure the queen wishes she hadnt' been so generous...she could have given them a property on one of the royal estates...and Andrew HAD nothing back then.. Harry is better off.

Ok, so that is about how he should be treated in the future because currently he is provided with a small residence at KP that the couple seems to enjoy - just like William early in his marriage.

I thought this specific discussion started by the following quote by Curryong:
Quote:
Considering every one of the Queen's children has one property not bought by themselves, plus William has too, are Harry and Meghan just going to be left to their own devices, with the dismissive tone in that article 'Oh they have their own money, they can buy elsewhere in London' prevailing? Apparently Harry is to be treated differently to everyone else.*
So, yes, it seems that some argue that Harry should be treated like his cousins imo the queen and Charles are treating him as is appropriate for the second son of the heir, ie by providing a home for him.

And what a fiasco that was. I have no doubt the Queen and Prince Charles would never do anything like that ever again.

Because Harryís mother tragically died young, an event that Iím sure Andrew is glad he doesnít have to live through. And why is he being better off prevent him from receiving what all other working royals are given? No one is saying itíll necessarily be something bought. In fact, it likely wonít be if their main home is in the city.

As for if itís a good decision to buy a property or not, it really depend on the person, doesnít it? It was a fiasco with Sunninghill because Andrew is the way he is. Not necessarily applicable to the rest of royals. Anne was also gifted a home that HMQ bought, along with an adjacent property, Zara now lives in, after her divorce so Mark can live there. That has been an example of handling yourself right.

So I guess you are saying he knows what heís doing by having them work for the monarchy? If thatís the case, they should get a suitable home like all the other working royals.

So, that would plead for offering them a house on a royal or crown estate and in any case by lease... Just like the queen did for her very responsible youngest son.
