Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are actively trying to reshape their lives after calling it quits from the Royal Family at the beginning of the year. One of the things that seem to be overly important for the couple is making sure that they actually have a place of their own to live.
When they were married they moved into Frogmore Cottage which is on the grounds of Windsor Castle. The property is owned by the Queen. So, it would never really be their own home!
When Harry and Meghan decided to leave their active royals as senior royals the couple was renovating their home at Frogmore Cottage. The renovation was set to cost over 3 million dollars. At the time the money was basically coming out of the pockets of the British taxpayers.
The couple has pledged that they are going to repay the money. Yet, no date has been set or plan put in place to ensure that they are going to be able to make this happen. As far as we know the property is sitting as they left it!
Recently a lot has been speculated about where Meghan and Harry’s new home is going to be located. Of course, the couple is now in quarantine in Canda. Once they left the Royal Family, they have essentially lived out there for most of the time.
They have taken certain trips south of the Canadian border though. Notably for a speaking engagement in Miami that paid them around 1 million dollars. As well as that very famous dinner date with Jlo and A-Rod.
The British newspaper The Sun recently reported that the couple had plans to buy a 3.5 million dollar home that would be near Soho Farmhouse. This is an area that includes a private members club. Which, the couple seems to be very fond of. Before their wedding, Meghan actually had a Bachelorette party at the venue.
It would not be a shock to anyone that they would want to remain close to their social circle in the UK. The home is some 2 hours away from Buckingham Palace though.
It has also been speculated that the couple wanted to buy a Malibu beach house. Now, they are also contemplating the English cottage, oddly enough they seem content to live in that “borrowed” mansion in Canada. How are they going to pay for all of this?
Well, Meghan is looking for a new gig narrating a documentary about Elephants for Disney. Harry can actually still get money from his dad. This is seemingly their main source of income right now. They have renounced the public grants, but Prince Charles does have private endeavors.
