MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s request to live in Windsor Castle after their wedding may have been rejected by the Queen because it would have been “غير مناسب”, according to an expert.
But the couple have had plenty of homes together since they first started dating.
After they got engaged, Meghan moved into Harry’s two-bedroom cottage at Kensington Palace, just a few doors down from the Cambridges.
And after their wedding, they wanted somewhere bigger to raise a family.
The Duke and Duchess asked Her Majesty if they could live at Windsor Castle – something royal biographer Hugo Vickers said may not have been “entirely appropriate”.
The royal historian told the Times in 2019: “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 Archie was born, Harry and Meghan moved into Frogmore Cottage, gifted to them by the Queen shortly before their wedding.
But despite taking on huge renovations to kit it out to their taste, ال pair handed the keys to Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank in 2020.
They have since set up their new life among the rich and famous in California and fear it is too dangerous for them to return.
It emerged last week Harry has launched legal action against the Government to allow him police protection when he comes home to the UK – something he was stripped of after quitting royal life.
A legal representative for the Duke said of him leaving the UK: “While his role within the institution has changed, his profile as a member of the royal family has not. Nor has the threat to him and his family.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex personally fund a private security team for their family, yet that security cannot replicate the necessary police protection needed whilst in the UK.
“In the absence of such protection, Prince Harry and his family are unable to return to his home.”
The row has sparked fears Harry may no longer return to England for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, في حين it’s been suggested Meghan may never come back.
