Šta je kraljičin svadbeni poklon za princa Harryja i Meghan?

Iako kraljevski par treba da se odrekne većine svojih svadbenih poklona u vrijednosti od 8 miliona funti koje su primili od nepoznatih pošiljalaca i kompanija koje su tako željele da ostvare promociju i dobit, jedan poklon, onaj kraljice Elizabete II, ostaće u njihovom vlasništvu.

Pri odabiru svog poklona, kraljica Elizabeta je za svog unuka i njegovu suprugu odlučila da bude prilično darežljiva. Poklon dostojan kraljice, zapravo je kuća “York Cottage” na imanju u Sandringhamu. Poklon je oko 800 hektara zemlje na koliko se prostire imanje, objavili su britanski mediji.

It has been reported the Queen has given the Duke and Duchess of Sussex York Cottage on the Sandringham Estate as a country retreat. Originally built as a Batchelor's Cottage for unmarried shooting guests to Sandringham, it became the home of King George V and Queen Mary until 1925. Queen Alexandra remained in the "big house" until her death. George V described the cottage as "three Merrie England pubs joined together." The cottage is reputed to be haunted by Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, George V's brother and Mary's deceased fiancée, who died of influenza in January 1892. Five of George and Mary's children were born at the cottage, and each could not wait to leave and hated their time at the cottage. Along with the family, the cottage also had to accommodate equerries, private secretaries, domestic servants and household staff and its narrow corridors and staircases and small rooms meant it was difficult for moving around this cramped house. Queen Victoria also hated this cramped home. It has since become estate offices and staff accommodation, so if the reports of the cottage becoming the country home of the newly wed Duke and Duchess of Sussex, this could be another difficult step in the cottage's turbulent past.

Od toga, 240 hektara čini javni park, a 24 hektara vrt koji je ujedno povezan s glavnom kućom. Imanje zapravo datira sve do perioda kralja Edvarda VII koji je kuću poklonio svom sinu, kralju Georgeu V u 1893. godini.

Harry i Meghan trenutno borave u kući Nottingham koja je smještena na prostoru Kensington palate, a svoj novi dom će koristiti kao odmaralište.
