Although nothing has been confirmed, fingers are pointing to Apartment 1, right next to William and Kate’s home, Apartment 1A.

The 21-bedroom home on the grounds of Kensington Palace is home to the much older Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, reportedly on their way out of the property.

It's going to cost taxpayers

Harry and Meghan currently live in Nottingham Cottage, a 2-bedroom home, and have reportedly signed the lease for a choice estate in Cotswolds, minutes outside London, called Westfield Large.

Apparently, the plan is to make Westfield Large their second home while renovation work is carried out in Apartment 1. And word on the street is the repair work has cost British taxpayers no less than £1.4 million ($1 847000) so far.

Does the Queen approve?

Still, nothing is certain as Kensington Palace has not confirmed anything and the Queen has not officially gifted any specific home to the couple.

Yet, it might as well be true, because the couple is looking to start a family of their own someday soon. It’s pretty much a given that they will be making a home near William and Kate’s. Do you agree?
