While Megan Markle and Prince Harry certainly have their fair share of issues in the press, the young couple are thought to be very beloved in the royal family. Markle became especially close to Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Harry's grandmother, and was repeatedly seen sharing a giggle or joke with the much-respected monarch.
However, even the Queen prefers to have some boundaries when it comes to sharing her space. Read on to find out where Prince Harry and Megan Markle were originally considering creating a residence.
Prince Harry and Megan Markle want to live at Windsor Castle
When Prince Harry and Megan Markle got married in late 2017, the whole world became even more invested in their journey together. Thousands tuned in to broadcast their royal wedding in May 2018, with the world media tuning in to the exciting event, looking at every detail, from Markle's simple, classic wedding dress to the sweet image of Prince Charles walking her along the aisle.
After the wedding bells stopped ringing and real life began again, one of the first things the royal couple had to figure out was where they would live.
Prince Harry and Megan Markle apparently originally wanted to live in Windsor Castle. The glamorous palace is where the couple get married and where Queen Elizabeth II spends much of her time on weekends and for various business engagements.
However, the report reveals that when the couple brought the idea to the Queen, she "politely but firmly" suggested an alternative way of life.
It is possible that Queen Elizabeth II may believe that Windsor Castle is not a suitable space for the bride or perhaps the fact that she wants to have her own privacy, but anyway, her proposal turned out to be absolutely perfect.
