Meghan Markle and Prince Harry received an unexpected extravagant gift from the Queen.


Before the Royal Wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle–now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex–made clear they were forgoing traditional wedding gifts. 

Instead, they asked their guests to donate to a slew of charities.

But it appears that the Queen of England is in a giving mood. She reportedly granted the newlyweds the plush Adelaide Cottage in Windsor simply because no one gives better gifts than Queen Elizabeth.

The Adelaide Cottage is situated in the middle of Windsor, England, near St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.  This is the same place where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex held their royal wedding. Kensington Palace declined to comment, but The Royal UK writer, Pratishtha Mahajan, told the outlet that “the couple had been for a viewing, liked it and will move in very soon.”

The cottage was first built in the year 1831 and was reportedly home to Group Captain Peter Townsend, Princess Margaret’s former love.

 The Adelaide Cottage is undoubtedly a perfect fit for royalty. The main bedroom “boasts a coved ceiling with gilded dolphins and rope ornament from a 19th Century Royal yacht” and also features “a marble Graeco-Egyptian fireplace.”

Pratishtha Mahajan added that Meghan and Harry’s privacy won’t be in jeopardy since the house comes equipped with “seven-gated entrances and exits to Windsor Castle so the newlyweds could come and go without worrying about being photographed.”

Prince Harry and Meghan’s new cottage is very close to where the Queen resides. It means more time for Meghan and Queen Elizabeth’s relationship to blossom–as if they weren’t best friends already.
