Harry adds: “You guys have spent way more time at Buckingham Palace than I ever have – and you’ve only been here two weeks!”

The Prince and his wife Meghan Markle, whom he married in May, live in Nottingham Cottage – a two-bedroom house in the grounds of the Kensington Palace – where Prince William also lives with wife Kate and children Princes George and Louis, and Princess Charlotte.

However, the Queen, 92,  is said to have recently ‘gifted’ Harry and Meghan a new home, Adelaide Cottage, in Windsor, where Peter Townsend, who was romantically linked to Princess Margaret, once lived.

Harry has previously spoken about the Queen, confessing he views her as ‘his boss’ more than his grandmother!

For part of a BBC documentary to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016,  Elizabeth at 90 – A Family Tribute, Harry said: “I still view her more as the Queen than my grandmother.

“You have this huge amount of respect for your boss, and I always view her as my boss – and occasionally as a  grandmother.”

He added: “People always say, ‘Do you feel as if you are following in her footsteps?’ And yes, that is exactly what we are doing.”
