Queen Elizabeth reportedly rejected an "inappropriate" request from Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, regarding their living arrangements after their May 2018 wedding.

The Queen is said to have rejected the couple's demand to live in Windsor Castle after they got married. According to the Sunday Times, the couple asked the Queen if they could live at Windsor Castle.

Royal expert Roya Nikkhah wrote, "The couple are understood to have set their hearts at first on Windsor Castle and are believed to have asked the Queen if living quarters could be made available after their marriage." However, the Queen declined the request and gave them Frogmore Cottage instead.

"There are empty bedrooms and suites in the private apartments within Windsor Castle which the Sussexes may have had their eye on, or perhaps some former living quarters in the castle grounds converted into other things," Hugo Vickers told the Express why the Queen may have rejected the idea, "But I can see how it might not be entirely appropriate to have a young family living there."

Harry and Meghan are now residing in a California mansion with their two children, Archie and Lilibet. Before the birth of Archie, the couple moved into their Frogmore Cottage home. However, it was later than expected because of the delays with renovation work.

When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex first dated six years ago, they had several homes together. After being engaged, Meghan moved into Harry's small two-bedroom cottage at Kensington Palace, near the Cambridge family.

Meanwhile, Harry has now raked up a huge controversy for threatening to sue the UK government for turning down his request for asking to be allowed to pay for police protection for his and his family's security. The 37-year-old has reportedly threatened legal action against the Home Office's decision.

Harry lost his taxpayer-funded police protection when he and Meghan announced their withdrawal from their senior royal duties in 2020. Meghan and Archie have not returned to the United Kingdom since then. Meanwhile, their daughter, Lilibet is yet to set foot in her father's homeland.
