Sarah Ferguson, 62, has bought a £5million house in Mayfair but has no plans to move into the property. The Duchess of York has reportedly bought the house in one of London’s most desirable areas as a “long-term investment” for her daughters Princess Beatrice and Eugenie, royal sources said Wednesday.
A source told The Sun: “It’s a short walk from the best bars and restaurants in town, beautiful parks and other hot spots.”
The Duchess will not be living in the property herself, as it is a “long-term investment” for her daughters Princess Beatrice and Eugenie.
Where do the sisters live now?
Princess Beatrice is known to have stayed at St James’s Palace in London. Although there are many reports that she is planning to move to the Cotswolds with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and their daughter Sienna.
Where does Princess Eugenie live?
Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank currently split their time between London and Portugal.
The princess is reportedly staying at Nottingham Cottage when she is in the UK.
They previously lived at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle extended their lease just before the platinum anniversary, meaning it’s still in their name.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex lived at the property in 2019 before leaving as working members of the Royal Family.
What does Eugenie’s current British home, Nottingham Cottage, look like from the inside?
Nottingham Cottage, or Nott Cott as it is affectionately known, was Prince Harry’s home from 2013 to 2017.
One of the smaller properties on the Kensington Palace estate, it has two bedrooms and reception rooms, as well as a kitchen, bathroom and small garden.
Harry would have hung a hammock in his backyard when he moved in.
The Christopher Wren-designed cottage was also home to Prince William and Kate, who lived there for a short period in 2013 with their newborn son Prince George, while their mansion Apartment 1A was being renovated.
