Meghan Markle felt ‘shunted off’ in little cottage away from Kensington Palace


Meghan Markle felt ‘shunted off’ in little cottage away from Kensington Palace


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

The Sussexes are now residing in the United States, where Meghan Markle is expecting her second child.

After their Oprah Winfrey interview, which drew criticism from the Royal Family and the general public in the United Kingdom, the pair has been engulfed in controversy.

The couple’s return to the nation for the unveiling of Princess Diana’s memorial statue in July has sparked speculation.

According to the Express, Meghan’s short stint on the royal frontline shows she has never loved staying on royal properties.

Author Tom Quinn suggests the Duchess of Sussex must have been “drawn in” by the royal family’s fantasy at first.


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

Nottingham Cottage, a two-bedroom cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace, was the couple’s first marital residence.

Known as ‘Nott Cott,’ it was the couple’s residence before they moved to Frogmore Cottage, and then to California.

Mr Quinn told the Mirror’s ‘Pod Save The Queen’ podcast that he believes Meghan and Harry were disappointed in their first house.

He went on to say, “I think she wasn’t too keen on that.”

“It seemed like they were being shunted off to a little prefab in the grounds.”

The Sussexes’ new £11 million mansion outside LA, which has 16 bathrooms, is sigificantly larger than the “snug” two-bedroom home on the Kensington Palace estate.

Despite Mr Quinn’s arguments, writers Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie say Meghan was content in the house.

They said in their book ‘Finding Freedom,’ as stated by the Daily Express: “After months of long-distance, Meghan was thrilled to finally be sharing a postcode, W8 4PY, with her partner.

“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, however, tried to spruce up her new house as soon as she moved in, according to the authors.

“Her natural eye for design had gone a long way toward dressing up the house, but there wasn’t really anything she could do about the size,” the book clarified.

According to the biography, Harry had to “stoop” while going around areas of the second level, and Meghan’s closet took up one of the two bedrooms.

It wasn’t long until the pair contemplated moving into a 21-bedroom house in Kensington Palace next door to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Apartment 1A.

Mr Quinn said Nottingham Cottage was also at the center of the Sussexes’ feud with Kate and William during Channel 5’s documentary, “Meghan & Harry: Two Troubled Years.”

“Nottingham Cottage is in the grounds of Kensington Palace and it’s quite small.,” he said.

“It’s tiny compared to the enormous double apartment that Kate and William have.

“It was being pointed out to them in no uncertain terms that they weren’t in the first division, because that place is held by William and Kate.”

Then, just months after their wedding, Meghan and Harry agreed to relocate to Windsor’s Frogmore Cottage, away from the stress of city living.

While they prepared to welcome their baby, Archie, they were searching for a larger home.

Meghan “suddenly realised it was like living in the Russian Steppe” away from London, Mr Quinn told Ms Gripper.

“She was away from everything,” he observed.
