And we’re jealous.

Since Meghan Markle’s arrival in England, she and Prince Harry have been living together in Kensington Palace, having Nottingham Cottage - the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s old house - as their home.

Kensington Palace is home to 15 current and future royals, with two more joining the fold just last week, moving in next door to Harry and Meghan.

The new arrivals? Princess Eugenie and her fiance Jack Brooksbank.

That’s right. Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have moved into Kensington Palace’s Ivy Cottage, just yards from Nottingham Cottage.

The couple reportedly moved into the three-bedroom cottage during the Prince Louis baby buzz, with the 28-year-old princess moving out of her four-bedroom apartment in St James’ Palace that she shared with Princess Beatrice.

‘Harry and Eugenie are great mates,’ a source reportedly told the Sun. ’She was one of the first people who met Meghan.’

The source continued: ‘Eugenie is so pleased. It’s the first time she and Jack have lived together. They wanted to move in earlier but there were arguments over who paid for renovations.’

Both couples are preparing for weddings at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle this year, with Harry and Meghan tying the knot this month and Eugenie and Jack set to wed in October.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that the couples are getting close!

We’re already getting FOMO thinking about their neighbourly summer drinks and dinner parties.
