Meghan ‘wasn’t too keen’ on living in smaller place than Kate and William after royal wedding


Meghan ‘wasn’t too keen’ on living in smaller place than Kate and William after royal wedding


According to royal author Tom Quinn, Meghan Markle didn’t understand her lower status within the royal family.

Meghan Markle reportedly felt “shunted off” after she was told to live in Nottingham Cottage rather than Kensington Palace.

According to the Express, Meghan’s short stint on the royal frontline shows she has never enjoyed living on royal estates.

Quinn discussed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with the Pod Save the Queen podcast, saying Meghan was “shunted off” and that she and Harry were not offered a more lavish residence like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Mr Quinn told podcast host Ann Gripper that Meghan was originally “drawn in” by the fantasy aspect that comes with being a member of the Royal Family.

But, he said, she grew dissatisfied with life “in a little cottage” after she and Prince Harry settled into married life.


After their marriage, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stayed at Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace, while Prince William and Kate Middleton remain in Kensington Palace’s apartment 1A.

Known as ‘Nott Cott,’ the two-bedroom cottage was the couple’s home before they moved to Frogmore Cottage, and then to California.

He claimed, “I think that actually, she wasn’t too keen on that.  “It seemed like they were being shunted off to a little prefab in the grounds .”

Harry and Meghan did not stay in Nottingham Cottage for long, and instead relocated to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, reportedly to escape the stresses of city life.

The new Windsor home was given to Harry and Meghan, who had it extensively renovated in preparation for the birth of their son Archie.

Despite the £2.4 million upgrade, Quinn said Meghan was “disappointed” by Frogmore Cottage.

But, according to Mr Quinn, this arrangement was also unsatisfactory because Meghan “suddenly realised it was like living in the Russian Steppe”

“She was away from everything,” said the author of “Kensington Palace: An Intimate Memoir from Queen Mary to Meghan Markle.”

However, writers Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand of the pro-Sussex biography Finding Freedom reported that the Duchess was originally “thrilled” to be staying there.

“After months of long-distance, Meghan was thrilled to finally be sharing a postcode, W8 4PY, with her partner,” they claimed.

“She felt at home at Nott Cott with Harry — she’s always been able to bloom where she was planted, but she hadn’t moved to London to start a new job.

“She had moved to London to start a new life.”

    Meghan Markle is a disgusting human being, a liar that does not seem to ever tell the truth and has caused so much disaster in her wake. Harry is worse in my opinion as he went right along with that liar against his own family! Hopefully they will stay in California and never darken the doorstep of the good people of England ever again. We are certainly not happy having either of them in the United States either!! Grow up and stop your whining Harry and Meghan. You are both hateful horrible people.

    Meghan is not close to her own father who adored her. She got rid of Harry s family as well with practiced ease. She talks about calling Queen as if she was Doria…Liar.

      You got it, where do children learn first, at home right? Who thought her to lie, you are right. When the mother went to jail, they said she was working as a flight attendant but no record found. Mother went to jail per record due to tax evasion.
