Queen rejected Harry and Meghan Markle's 'inappropriate' living request, says expert

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry put a request to the Queen about their living arrangements after their wedding in May 2018, but Her Majesty turned them down for a specific reason

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle live in a beautiful Californian mansion with their two children Archie and Lilibet.

But they've had several homes together since they first started dating almost six years ago.

After they became engaged, Meghan moved in to Harry's small two-bedroom cottage at Kensington Palace, which is just a few doors up from the Cambridge family.

But after their wedding, they wanted somewhere bigger to raise a family and went to the Queen with an idea.

But according to a report the pair faced disappointment when the monarch rejected the request they made about their home.

According to the Sunday Times, the couple asked the Queen if they could live at Windsor Castle.

The report, written by Roya Nikkhah states: "The couple are understood to have set their hearts at first on Windsor Castle, and are believed to have asked the Queen if living quarters could be made available after their marriage."

But Harry's granny said no and gave them Frogmore Cottage instead.

Hugo Vickers told the Express why the Queen may have decided to deny their request, saying it might not have been "entirely appropriate".

He writes: "There are empty bedrooms and suites in the private apartments within Windsor Castle which the Sussexes may have had their eye on, or perhaps some former living quarters in the castle grounds converted into other things.

"But I can see how it might not be entirely appropriate to have a young family living there."

Before the birth of Archie, the couple moved into their Frogmore Cottage home, later than expected due to delays with renovation work.

It's just over two years since they moved out of Frogmore and started their new life in the US.

But it has now emerged that Harry does not want to bring Meghan and their two children to the UK to visit, saying there is a lack of security.

The 37-year-old, who remains sixth in line to the throne despite quitting royal duties in 2020, has threatened legal action against the Home Office unless he can have police protection for his family when in the UK.

He is said to be keen to bring Archie and Lilibet to visit his homeland but claims he is unable to do so.

Megan and Archie have not returned to the UK since the couple walked away from royal life in 2019, while Lilibet has yet to set foot in the country where her dad was born.

Lawyers acting for the Duke of Sussex say they will seek a judicial review if continued security, which he has offered to pay for, is not provided when he and his family visit.
