Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have some new neighbors. Princess Eugenie and her fiancé Jack Brooksbank have reportedly moved right next door to Nottingham Cottage, and now live in Ivy Cottage within Kensington Palace.
People confirmed the news this morning, sharing that the happy couple moved to the three bedroom home at some point in April. Eugenie had previously been living in an apartment within St. James’s Palace with her sister Princess Beatrice.
Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank have reportedly become quite close with Prince Harry and Markle over the past few months. According to Andrew Morton's new biography, Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, the two brides-to-be have bonded "over a shared love of art, dogs and late-night macaroni suppers."
Perhaps they're also swapping wedding planning tips. Like Harry and Meghan, Eugenie and Jack will marry in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle later this week. Their marriage celebration will even feature nods to their new home, including sugared ivy on their wedding cake.
In addition to being nearby Meghan and Harry, Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank will also be a short distance away from Prince William, Duchess Kate and the kids, making it easy to check in on Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and little Prince Louis.
Moving in to Ivy Cottage marks the first time Princess Eugenie has officially lived with Jack. While living with one's boyfriend before marriage used to be considered quite taboo, Prince William and Kate Middleton lived together before tying the knot, and, of course, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared Nottingham Cottage in the months leading up to their May 19 wedding.
