Le couple devrait emménager à Nottingham Cottage.
Une nouvelle page s’ouvre enfin. Après une organisation de mariage chamboulée par l’affaire Epstein – et ses liens douteux avec le prince Andrew – et le coronavirus, Beatrice et Edoardo ont pu se dire « oui » en toute intimité le 17 juillet dernier. La lune de miel entre France et Italie passée, place au déménagement. Et c’est à Nottingham Cottage que les jeunes mariés vont pouvoir s’installer si l’on en croit les derniers échos de la presse britannique.
La demeure cossue est située sur les terres de Kensington Palace à un jet de pierre d’Ivy Cottage, la maison de la princesse Eugenie. Ce n’est certainement pas un hasard lorsque l’on sait que les deux soeurs sont inséparables. Les Cambridge seront eux aussi leurs voisins. Affublé du doux surnom de « Nott Cott », le pied-à-terre élégant est composé de deux chambres. De quoi accueillir prochainement un nouveau royal baby ?

𝑁𝑜𝑡𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑔ℎ𝑎𝑚 𝐶𝑜𝑡𝑡𝑎𝑔𝑒 … About Nottingham Cottage: ☆Nottingham Cottage (nicknamed « Nott Cott ») is a house in the grounds of Kensington Palace in London. As a grace-and-favour property, the house has been frequently occupied by members of the British royal family, as well as staff and employees.Nottingham Cottage has two bedrooms and two reception rooms, with a bathroom and small garden. It is 1,324 square feet (123.0 m2) in size. It stands near two other grace-and-favour houses, Kent Cottage and Wren Cottage. The house was designed by Christopher Wren. Its name derives from Nottingham House, the residence of the Earl of Nottingham from which Kensington Palace was expanded by William III and Mary II. Before Crawford, Nottingham Cottage had been home to Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester, and his wife, Princess Alice. Later occupants included Sir Miles Hunt-Davis (the Private Secretary of the Duke of Edinburgh) and his wife Anita, Lady Hunt-Davis, and Robert Fellowes (who served as Private Secretary to Queen Elizabeth II) and his wife Lady Jane Fellowes (sister of Diana, Princess of Wales).Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, lived at Nottingham Cottage for two and a half years after leaving Anglesey, where Prince William had been stationed as a helicopter pilot. The couple lived there with the infant Prince George for a few months after his birth, before moving in October 2013 to Apartment 1A in Kensington Palace. The ceilings of the home are very low, and Prince William had to stoop to avoid hitting his head on them. Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, the younger brother of Prince William, moved into the house following his brother’s departure. Harry proposed to Meghan Markle whilst roasting a chicken in the home. After their wedding in May 2018, the couple continued living at the house. In November 2018, it was announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would move from Nottingham Cottage to Frogmore Cottage (near Windsor) in spring 2019, before the birth of their first child. #nottinghamcottage
