Get a First Look at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Historic Countryside Home
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are taking nesting to a whole new level as they anticipate the arrival of their royal baby. And by nesting, we don't mean applying a new coat of paint to the nursery in Kensington Palace-the pair, who are currently planning for a big move, has reportedly locked down two homes for their new family.
Though the newlyweds will always call Kensington Palace home (Harry's immediate family lives there, after all), they are currently waiting for renovations on their new pad, Windsor Estate, to be completed. But, according to royal reporter Emily Andrews, this isn't the only property the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have recently acquired-they've reportedly just purchased a stunning 300-year-old historical farmhouse in Cotswold, U.K.
Based on new images of the property, the $2.5 million farm house seems like a magical place to raise a family. Located in the Oxfordshire hills, the estate is a converted barn that consists of four bedrooms and a two bedroom "outhouse," reports The Daily Mail. The main home also allegedly features two kitchens (one for each floor), stunning floor-to-ceiling windows, a large dining room, and plenty of outdoor entertaining space.
Though the Cotswold residence will likely act as a country home for the royal parents-to-be, it still boasts all of the amenities and space they'll need for their growing family. Thankfully, the home also features plenty of rooms for visitors-something the Duchess likely ensured for her mother Doria Ragland's visits. Though Ragland is reportedly not relocating to the U.K., the social worker wants to spend "a lot of time with Meghan and the baby" in the coming months, reports Us Weekly, and will clearly have the space to do so.
