In 2012, four years before meeting Meghan Markle, the Prince moved into Kensington Palace, and while the grand residence is huge, Harry lived in a modest one-bedroom apartment inside the palace walls.

It is reported that the small home was a former staff apartment with a small lounge, kitchenette and bathroom.

At the time, a spokesperson from St James’s Palace reported the move to the Daily Mail. The statement read: "Prince Harry moved into accommodation at Kensington Palace when he returned from the overseas tour. This will now act his official London Residence. He still anticipates moving into the property currently used by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge [Nottingham Cottage] once they vacate it in the future."

Prince Harry's current home is seriously beautiful

They have a large rustic wooden desk and the Duchess sat on one of two cream dining room style chairs, while the other was draped with a Hermes blanket, and behind her, a traditional fireplace was in full view.

The Duke and Duchess also have a UK base which is Frogmore Cottage, and it is believed Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie is currently residing there along with her husband Jack Brooksbank and baby August.
