NL Extra: See The Extraordinary Wedding Gift Queen Elizabeth Gave To Prince Harry And Meghan Markle [Photos]

The queen’s very extravagant wedding gift to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry has finally been revealed, despite the Duke and Duchess of Sussex asking their friends and followers to donate to charities instead of sending them a traditional present.
Her Majesty has gifted the Royal couple York Cottage, from her Sandringham Estate. York Cottage is a Royal stately home where Her Majesty’s beloved Norfolk home, Sandringham House is situated.

The overall property is believed to be 8,000 hectares large (around 19,800 acres) and includes a 240-hectare public park and 24-hectare garden, which is connected to the main house.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new pad dates all the way back to King Edward VII, who gave it to his son, the future King George V in 1893.
Harry and Meghan currently live in Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace and will use the new home as a holiday hideaway.

The cottage is currently partly used as holiday accommodation as well as digs for estate staff.

Lady Donaldson, the first female Lord Mayor of London, once said: “York Cottage in its own context is a monument to the eccentricity of the family who lived there.”

Royal biographer Duncan Larcombe said the Queen “has a habit of giving property” to family.

She gave Sunninghill Park to Prince Andrew, Birkhall to Prince Charles, and Anmer Hall to Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Recall that Meghan and Harry asked members of the public to make charitable donations, instead of sending them gifts.
