Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Making a Major Life Change

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are embarking on a major life change, and it’s prompted one of Billy Joel’s most annoyingly catchy songs to be stuck in our head all morning long: the duke and duchess of Sussex are “movin’ out”!

According to various sources, the newlyweds are finally able to move to Kensington Palace now that renovations (at the price point of $1.83 million) on their apartment are complete. Since their engagement around a year ago, Harry and Meghan have been living in Nottingham Cottage on the Palace grounds — in fact, it’s where Harry proposed (you know, with the roast chicken as witness).

Sentimentality aside, Harry and Meghan are ready to migrate to the palace, wherein they’ll find neighbors Prince William and Kate Middleton. And when we say "neighbors," we really mean neighbors — their apartments share adjoining doors. Oh, and when we say “apartment,” we don’t mean your Bushwick walk-up — Meghan and Harry’s new pad has 21 rooms, so more than enough space for possible future tots and their pup.

In addition to the many royals living on the Kensington Palace grounds (Princess Eugenie and fiancé Jack Brooksbank live in the Ivy Cottage), 15 members of the royal family live in the palace itself. Daily tea parties with your entire extended family, anyone?
