Could Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Move into Clarence House?

It's believed that Prince Charles will move into Buckingham Palace when he becomes king.

While royal fans are hoping for an imminent engagement announcement from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it's already being speculated that the couple could move into Clarence House together.

It was recently reported that Prince Charles is keen to give up Buckingham Palace as the main royal residence when he becomes king, as he is "very comfortable" in his current London home of Clarence House, according to The Sunday Times.

Charles is said to believe that Buckingham Palace is "too large and costly for modern family life." It has also been reported that he would rather use the Palace as a royal office while making it more accessible to the public.

However, a Clarence House spokesperson added to the newspaper that "Buckingham Palace will remain the official London residence of the monarch."

The Daily Mail claims that a senior aide has also ruled out Prince Charles remaining at Clarence House, despite what he might prefer. So it's now being rumored that Harry and Meghan could move into the royal residence in Westminster instead once Prince Charles accedes to the throne.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are happily settled with Prince George and Princess Charlotte in Kensington Palace, so it seems unlikely that the couple would move residences in the foreseeable future. Particularly as Kate and William recently announced they are expecting their third child.

It's believed that, until then, Harry and the Suits star will continue to stay in his current home of Nottingham Cottage, a two-bedroom apartment on the grounds of Kensington Palace.

Harry and Markle are rumoured to make their first official public appearance together as a couple at the upcoming Invictus Games in Toronto on September 23. The 36-year-old actress has been residing temporarily in Toronto while she's been filming her hit legal drama.

Meanwhile, Markle spoke candidly about her relationship with the 33-year-old prince for the first timein the October issue ofVanity Fair.

"I can tell you that at the end of the day I think it's really simple," she said. "We're two people who are really happy and in love."
