Key Differences Between Harry and Meghan's new home and the mansion of William and Kate
The Queen of England has gifted to Harry and Meghan their new home to celebrate their nuptials. This property is called Adelaide Cottage. She did the same with Kate and William in 2013, when she gifted them Anmer Hall. Here we will show you some differences between these properties and what that means.
Chapter 1: Famous previous owners
The new home of Meghan and Harry was built in 1831 for Queen Adelaide, wife of King William IV. She was the Princess of Saxe-Meiningen and the Queen consort of the United Kingdom and of Hanover and was known for her endless beauty.
Another of the well-known people who also lived in this house, you may find Captain Peter Townsend. He was famous for his problematic romance with Princess Margaret and confidante of King George VI. His romance was looked down upon due to him being married before.
Chapter 2: Will and Kate's house history
The home where Prince William and Kate lives was purchased by Queen Victoria in 1896 as a wedding gift for her eldest son, who then became King Edward VII and Emperor of India until his sad death in 1910.
This property's history made it real easy for Queen Elizabeth to select it among all the Royal properties as a gift for the future family of her older grandson. It was a special house for what it represented in the time it was built.
