Lovenest for Prince Harry? Kensington Palace apartment to undergo major refurb
A 21-ROOM apartment at Kensington Palace often mentioned as a possible future home for Prince Harry is to undergo a major refurbishment.
Royal aides have refused to say how much the work at Apartment 1, currently the home of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, will cost but accounts published today reveal it will get a new roof and have its windows repaired or replaced this year.
There has been speculation that Harry, 32, could eventually move into Apartment 1, which stands next to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s similarly-sized Apartment 1A, the late Princess Margaret’s former home.
The Prince, who is tipped to get engaged to his American actress girtfriend Meghan Markle later this year, will eventually need a bigger home than his current small cottage at Kensington Palace.
In 2014, another member of the family, Princess Michael suggested in an interview with Tatler magazine that Apartment 1 would fit the bill.
She said William and Kate have a “lovely big apartment, next to the Gloucesters, who I think will leave their enormous apartment because their children have gone.”
She added: “They’re rattling around this huge space and I think Prince Harry might go there. Then they’d be next door to each other – very good move.”
