Yikes, Prince William and Kate Middleton Are Moving Into the House Princess Eugenie Wanted

Looks like there’s some slight potential drama with Prince William and Kate Middleton’s planned move to Adelaide Cottage in Windsor, which they’re hoping to be settled into by this summer.

According to The Daily Mail, the Queen’s disgraced son Prince Andrew (who lives at nearby Royal Lodge) had his eye on Adelaide Cottage for his daughter, Princess Eugenie—who’s been living with her husband, Jack Brooksbank, and their son, August, in Frogmore Cottage. (Reminder: Frogmore Cottage is Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s home in the UK, which they’ve been loaning to Princess Eugenie).

Sources “close to the Yorks” tell The Daily Mail that Eugenie “had been trying to secure Adelaide Cottage for a while for when she moves out of Frogmore,” and that “before Andrew’s most recent scandal it was definitely a property he was [also] trying to secure for his daughter.’

The publication notes that it’s unclear whether or not Eugenie is still interested in the cottage, but “there is no doubt” that the Cambridges (who have several direct heirs to the throne in their family) would get first pick.

Meanwhile, a source previously told The Sun that for Prince William and Kate Middleton, “finding a way to make Adelaide Cottage work seems to be the best and only option. There are issues with all the other houses, so Adelaide will be the favorite.”

FYI, Adelaide is only a ten minute walk to the Queen, and used to be home to Princess Margaret’s ~lover~ Group Captain Peter Townsend. Since then, it’s been been used as a “grace and favor” residence, which Merriam-Webster tells me is “a habitation granted rent-free (as to a retainer) by the English royal household.”
