The ancient structure building, known as Nott Cott, features two bedrooms and one bathroom.
“Kensington Palace sounds a very royal name. Of course it is. It says ‘palace’ in the name, but Nott Cott was so small,” the Bench author stated, In Netflix’s December 2022 Harry & Meghan docuseries.
“The whole thing is on a slight lean,” the military veteran said. Ceilings are really low. I’m not sure who it was for. They have to be short.”

With only two bedrooms, the couple finally had to relocate to a larger home to accommodate their growing family.
In 2019, the couple relocated from London to Windsor. Frogmore Cottage, around 25 miles from London, had been built during Queen Charlotte’s reign in 1801. The home was given to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex by Queen Elizabeth II, who rebuilt it in preparation for the arrival of their son Archie in May 2019.
“It was a place full with memories for us,” Meghan spoke about Frogmore in the Netflix documentary series. “From our romance, engagement, wedding, and walks. And so we ended up, you know, having our baby.”
The Archewell cofounders spent $3.1 million (£2.4 million) refurbishing the building and transforming five flats into a family home, which they eventually reimbursed Harry’s father freely.
Though the pair intended for Frogmore to be their permanent residence, they left in early 2020 after stepping down from top royal positions.

Meghan and Harry moved to Canada when they stepped down as senior royals. “We didn’t have to worry about being ambushed from sunrise to night,” the BetterUp CIO’s 2023 memoir, was written. “The house was located on the edge of a gleaming green forest, with large grounds for Archie and the dogs to play in, and it was almost completely encircled by the clean, cool sea.”
“The best part was that no one knew we were there. We hiked, we kayaked, we played – in peace,” he wrote.
They were enjoying their peaceful renting until a British magazine publicized their location, attracting cameras in March 2020. The COVID-19 outbreak began as their new home was made public.
“And our location was revealed at that point. We were aware that our security was being compromised. “Everyone in the world knew where we were, so we weren’t going to be safe there,” Meghan said in the Netflix documentary, stressing that the Canadian border was going to be closed.
“There comes a point when you’re worried about what might happen next, and you have to do what any husband and father would do, which is get the hell out of there,” Harry explained.
The Sussexes relocated to Meghan’s home state amid the COVID-19 outbreak and the potential of closing the border. They lived briefly with Tyler Perry in Los Angeles until finding their $14.65 million Mediterranean-style property in summer 2020.
