Nottingham Cottage (nicknamed ‘Nott Cott’) is a house on the grounds of Kensington Palace in London. The house has been frequently occupied by members of the Royal Family, as well as staff and employees. Prince Harry is one of its most famous former royal residents.
Nottingham Cottage was described by The Telegraph as a “cosy property” on the grounds of Kensington Palace, with two bedrooms and reception rooms as well as a bathroom and small garden.
The ceilings are noted for their lowness, with previous resident Prince William having to stoop to avoid hitting his head, according to royal commentator Victoria Ward. While Prince Harry was living there, he also reportedly installed a hammock in the backyard.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge used Nottingham Cottage as their London residence after their marriage from 2011 to 2013. They split their time between the cottage and their home on the Bodorgan Estate in Wales.
The Duke and Duchess lived there with their new baby Prince George.This was before moving in October 2013 to Apartment 1A in Kensington Palace. Prince Harry moved into Nottingham Cottage from Clarence House following his brother’s departure, with the house referred to as his “bachelor pad” after leaving the army.
