Are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moving out of Kensington Palace?

In case you missed it - which you most definitely haven't - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child in the Spring, and the world cannot wait to meet their little one.

The couple made the announcement when they touched down in Sydney as part of their first royal tour together, and all eyes have been on the couple ever since. Harry has admitted that he's hoping for a little girl, and already has an adorable nickname for the royal baby.

But as they prepare to welcome their bundle of joy, it looks as though the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could also be planning to move house.

Currently, Harry and Meghan live in the two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace, but the Daily Mail reports that the couple are looking for a new home as they prepare to welcome their first child, and 'may leave the confines of Kensington Palace altogether.'

There was speculation that Harry and Meghan would move into a 21-bedroom apartment in Kensington Palace, next door to Prince William and Kate Middleton. However, it is currently occupied by the Queen’s cousin, the Duke of Gloucester, and his wife. A spokesperson has denied that the couple had their eye on this particular dwelling, saying it's simply 'not true'.

A source told the publication: 'Harry and Meghan want to move, and need more space, but they don’t want to live next door to William and Catherine.

'They will soon have separate offices and separate lives, so it would make sense for them to live further afield.

'There is no reason why their London home has to be at Kensington Palace. There are plenty of other options, including using their own money to buy their own place.'

Looks like Harry and Meghan could be in a new home just in time for baby Sussex!
