On a scale from one to spectacular, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding was a royal classic. Aside from the stunning Peter Pilotto dress she wore, Prince George and Princess Charlotte stole the show—though who's surprised, really?
Now that the wedding bells have rung and guests have left St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle (the same venue where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot five months ago), the newlywed couple will return to theirI home together at the Ivy Cottage. According to Forbes, it's a "a property on the private grounds of Kensington Palace." Well, that hardly tells us anything, so we investigated a bit further.
Here's everything you need — yes, need — to know about their home:
1.) It is the couple's first home together.
Following seven years dating, Princess Eugenie and Jack moved in together, calling the cottage their new home sweet home.
2.) They moved into Ivy Cottage a couple months after their engagement.
BBC shares that the couple's engagement took place while they were in Nicaragua in early January 2018, and by April, they moved in together.
3.) Currently, 13 other members of the royal family live at Kensington Palace.
Just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the newlyweds, you'll find Prince and Princess Michael of Kent; Duke and Duchess of Kent; Meghan Markle and Prince Harry; Prince William, Duchess Kate, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, & Prince Louis; and, of course, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
4.) Royalty can live humbly, too. Well...Sort Of.
Ivy Cottage is reportedly a "small three-bedroom property," but the renovations made to the entire estate within the last few years have been exorbitant.
5.) The 2012 renovations totaled £12 million.
If that doesn't sound like a lot to you, it's the equivalent of approximately $15,784,284. In other words, their version of living humbly is a bit different than mine. Perhaps yours, too.
