Nottingham Cottage: The Kensington home where Meghan and Harry will live as a married coupleFollowing their royal wedding, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will continue to live at Nottingham Cottage, a snug, two-bedroomed property in the grounds of Kensington Palace. The cottage was previously occupied by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who used it as their London base for around two-and-a-half years. How big is the cottage? Just a stone’s throw from Kensington Palace, Prince Harry’s childhood home, the cosy property, known by royal insiders as "Nott Cott," boasts two bedrooms, two reception rooms, a bathroom and a small garden. An aerial view of Kensington Palace, London Credit: Andrew Parsons/PA Wire King William III and Queen Mary II bought 'Nottingham House' from sec­retary of state Daniel Finch, the Earl of Nottingham, for £20,000 in 1689. It was subsequently remodelled into the palace by Christopher Wren, the architect who designed St Paul's Cathedral. The ceilings are said to be so low, the Duke of Cambridge had to “stoop” to avoid banging his head on them. An ideal starter home for newlyweds, the property also provides fantastic access to the trendy shops, boutiques and spas on Kensington High Street with which Ms Markle, 36, is already familiar. Ms Markle was familiar with the private, self-contained cottage before she moved in, having stayed with Prince Harry, 33, when she flew over from Toronto to visit him. Everything you need to know about visiting Kensington Palace Photographs of her former home in Toronto suggest that she favours a minimalistic, monochrome colour scheme with plenty of soft furnishings, coffee table books and floral arrangements. The American actress decorated it to "look like a California bungalow", and you can see how it looked while she lived in it on pictures she posted to Instagram. She wrote on her blog The Tig that the sunny decor helped her to stave off “seven Canadian winters.”  She has probably put her own mark on what had been, for four years, a batchelor pad. The Duchess of Cambridge is said to have redecorated it to her own taste when she first moved in. Royal wedding day pictures: Best photos from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's ceremony and reception Who else has lived there? Nottingham Cottage is one of the smallest properties within the grounds of Kensington Palace and was formerly the home of the Duke of Edinburgh’s private secretary, Brigadier Sir Miles Hunt-Davis, and his wife Gay. Princess Diana's sister Lady Jane Fellowes and her husband Sir Robert Fellowes also lived there. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge lived there when in London, from July 2011, moving in permanently when they left Anglesey.

Prince Harry moved in shortly afterwards and has lived there ever since. The first thing he reportedly did when was install a hammock in the yard. When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married, they were given Anmer Hall, a 10-bedroom Grade II-listed mansion on the Sandringham estate by the Queen. It's likely a similar offer will be made to Prince Harry and Ms Markle.  Meghan Markle's former home in Toronto Credit: AKGS It is not known whether he and Ms Markle employ their own staff. The Cambridges employed Italian housekeeper, Antonella Fresolone, who worked as a housemaid for the Queen for 13 years, to run their home when at Nottingham Cottage as well as in Anglesey. When Ms Markle moved to the UK, she brought her beloved beagle Guy with her. Bogart, a labrador-shepherd cross, was left behind with friends in Toronto after he was considered unfit to fly.

Lubbock Views and Opinions
 
The Importance of Free Press in a Democracy

Before we can understand the importance of a free press in a democracy, we need to grasp what it means to have a free press. The Cambridge Dictionary tells us that a free press allows all media outlets to express whatever opinions they desire. That means, it says, that they are enabled to “criticize the government and other organizations.” So why would that be relevant in a democracy?

Unfair Questions or Democracy At Work ?

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” -- The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Capitalism and The Wealth Gap

When it comes to the efficient delivery of goods and services, capitalism is the proven economic model that puts people to work and products on the shelves. Whether those jobs end up paying enough money to purchase the items on those shelves is another matter, however.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

Religious Freedom Bill - Protecting The Faithful or Legalized Discrimination?

After a much heated national debate, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial bill that would have allowed people and businesses in the state to refuse services to LBGT people based on their religious belief.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
