Six months after moving into their first joint residence in Kensington Palace, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are allegedly getting their forever home. According to The Daily Mail, the soon-to-be-newlyweds will be relocating to the Palace's 21-room Apartment 1—which just so happens to be next to Prince William and Kate Middleton's Apartment 1A—after their May 19 wedding.

 

The residence is currently undergoing renovations, which sources say should be complete after Harry and Meghan tie the knot. Overseeing the changes is Prince Harry himself. "He keeps popping round and asking when it will be ready. He seems in a real hurry to move in with Meghan," a source explained. The apartment's updates—which include a new mortar fireplace and a full facelift—began before the duo announced their engagement last November, which means that Harry and Meghan have been planning this move for quite some time now.

As for the many, many rooms?  It's no secret that the twosome plan to fill (some!) of them with children. The prince confirmed his plans to start a family last April, before he proposed to Meghan. "Of course, I would love to have kids," he said in a podcast interview with The Telegraph's Mad World. "I think the key to that is to be able to grow up, but also be able to stay in touch with your childhood side."

 

In their first joint interview post-engagement, both Harry and Meghan suggested that children would come sooner rather than later. "Of course, one step at a time and hopefully we'll start a family in the near future," the prince said. For now, thanks to his future home, he'll be able to get his kid fix from Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and his newest nephew, Prince Louis.
