The Queen's wedding present to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is very generous

Can we have one too?

Announcing their engagement last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to wed later this month on May 19th at St. George’s Chapel, in Windsor castle.

With under a month to go until the big day, there’s plenty of wedding prep for the royal family and its guests, from finding the perfect Philip Treacy-style fascinator to buying the newlyweds a fitting wedding present – what to get the couple who has everything!

Someone who doesn’t seem phased by the daunting task is the Queen, who is going above and beyond, not only bestowing a title upon the couple - odds are on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex - but also expected to be giving them a home.

That’s right, Queen Elizabeth is said to be giving the royal couple their very own stately home to celebrate the nuptials. But which to choose from?

It has been predicted that the Queen will choose York Cottage to give to the newlyweds, not far from her wedding gift to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with their home, Amner Hall, also based on her Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.

The fact that this is one of the first confirmed wedding gifts for the royal wedding is pretty daunting for the other guests.

Way to set the bar high!
