Harry And Meghan May Have To Move Thanks To Drama With The In-Laws

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry

Today in very important “famous people – they’re just like us!” news, it has been revealed that newly-married couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are having a bit of trouble with some stubborn in-laws, and may need to move into a new home as a result.

The pair currently live in a small, two-bedroom cottage at Kensington Palace, but are hoping to relocate to a larger royal apartment that will fit their growing family (okay, so their problems aren’t totally relatable to common folk, but you get the general idea).

Various royals actually have residences at Kensington Palace, including Prince William and Kate Middleton, who reside in a lavish, 20-room apartment on the grounds, and the Queen’s cousin, the Duke of Gloucester, who has a 21-room dwelling next door.

Harry and Meghan, who are expecting their first child next year, have their eye on that place, however, the UK press is reporting that the Duke’s wife Brigitte has dug her heels in and is refusing to move – I mean, if you had that sweet of a setup, you wouldn’t either, right?

According to The Sun: “Brigitte doesn’t want to leave. And why should she? She and her husband are still full-time working members of The Firm and they were given the apartment by Her Majesty.”

In the old days, Harry could have just solved this problem by locking his pesky relatives in the Tower of London or something, but that kind of thing probably wouldn’t fly in this more enlightened day and age. PC culture gone mad, am I right?

It’s now understood that the new couple are looking to live outside of the palace, with a royal source saying:

“Harry and Meghan want to move, and need more space, but they don’t want to live next door to William and Catherine. They will soon have separate offices and separate lives, so it would make sense for them to live further afield. There’s no reason why their London home has to be at Kensington Palace. There are plenty of other options, including using their own money to buy their own place.”

Using your own money to buy your own place? In this economy? I dunno, Harry and Meghan, you may want to look at the Tower of London option again, because that actually makes pretty sound financial sense.
