Harry and Meghan Are Gone, But Which Royals Still Live at Kensington Palace?

After months of anticipation, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have finally made the move to Frogmore Cottage, located in the countryside town of Windsor, England. The 10-bedroom home has been completely renovated for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and there is no doubt that it is spectacular!

There is now plenty of room for baby Sussex to run around and play, and for Meghan and Harry to have friends over and entertain as much as they would like. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may have officially left London, but which royals still live at Kensington Palace?

Why did Meghan Markle and Prince Harry move to Windsor?

There were rumors of a royal feud between Meghan and Kate Middleton, which then led to even more rumors that this was the reason that Meghan and Harry decided to move over 40 miles away. Luckily, these rumors were not true and we were informed that the reason for the move to Windsor was simply that Meghan and Harry wanted to raise their soon-to-be-born child in a quieter environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city of London. They couldn’t have chosen a better place than Windsor, the place where they became husband and wife!

Where do Prince William and Kate Middleton live?

Kate and William have a lavish, 21-room apartment at Kensington Palace. The four-floor home boasts five reception rooms, several bedrooms, bathrooms, and even two kitchens! When they moved in, Kate put her own personal touches on the space, choosing decor in neutral colors and sophisticated styles. We certainly wouldn’t mind living in a place like that, with its high ceilings, amazing views, and wonderful entrance hall.

Does Queen Elizabeth live at Kensington Palace?

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip call Buckingham Palace home, at least during the week. Once the weekend rolls around, they are off to Windsor Castle for a few days, and they also head over to Scotland to stay at Balmoral Castle from time to time. The queen spends every Christmas at her Sandringham estate, where she always hosts the entire royal family for the annual holiday celebrations. That is quite an impressive collection of real estate to have!

Who else lives at Kensington Palace?

Meghan and Harry may have packed up their bags and left, but there are still plenty of royal family members who still reside at Kensington. Princess Eugenie and her new husband, Jack Brooksbank, live at Ivy Cottage on the palace grounds, not too far from Kate and William. The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester live in apartment 1, just next door to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Wren house, which is also located on palace grounds, is home to the Duke and Duchess of Kent, the queen’s cousins. That is quite a few people who have the privilege of living at the palace! Tourists shouldn’t expect to see royal family members wandering around, as the residences are kept well out of public view.

Where else do royal family members live?

Although not everyone resides at Kensington Palace, there are still plenty of places around England for the family members to live. Prince Charles and Camilla live at Clarence House, the same place that Princes William and Harry once lived years ago. Saint James’s Palace is home to Princess Anne, and Prince Andrew lives at a spacious home on the grounds of Windsor Castle. Looks like everyone in the royal family has a great home to live in, whether located in the city of London, or nearby. Although the residents of Kensington Palace were more than likely sad to see Meghan and Harry leave, everyone wishes them the best of luck in their new home!
