Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank live in Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace, where they will soon be joined by their first child. The couple recently revealed they are set to welcome their first baby in early 2021.
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank moved into the property in early 2018, four months before they announced their engagement. The couple had been dating for seven years before finally tying the knot in October 2018.
They are said to have extensively renovated the interior of the three-bedroom Ivy Cottage. Eugenie and Brooksbank have kept their home as private as possible, but the princess has revealed a few details over the years.

For instance, Eugenie once said in an interview that the home has many personal touches to it. Her bedroom is filled with pictures her parents Prince Andrew and Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson have taken, she said. The princess added:
"Mumsy took one of an elephant spraying water on its back, which is incredible, and there's one Papa took of Balmoral Castle."
Eugenie, who is 10th in the line of succession to the British throne, went on to say that she intends to hang more art pieces on the walls. She also revealed that there are shoes everywhere in her house.
In 2019, Prince Harry gave a rare glimpse inside the abode of Eugenie and Jack. At the time, Harry uploaded a video during World Mental Health Week along with acclaimed singer Ed Sheeran.
In the clip, Sheeran can be seen arriving at the front door of Ivy Cottage. The "Shape Of You" singer then rang the doorbell before the Duke of Sussex answers.
Behind the prince, a doorway that leads to a lounge is also seen.
As shown in the video, the house has a white front door with a glass window. Eugenie and Jack's wedding photo was also seen in the clip. The black and white picture hangs on the wall in the corridor.
Behind the prince, a doorway that leads to a lounge is also seen. Meanwhile, Ivy Cottage is just near Nottingham Cottage, where Harry and Meghan Markle lived before moving to the U.S.

Prince William and Kate Midleton also live nearby at Apartment 1A, with their three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
During the COVID-19 lockdown, Eugenie and Brooksbank lived in Royal Lodge in Windsor with Eugenie's family. But now, it is believed that the couple has returned to Ivy Cottage.
Eugenie lived with her sister Princess Beatrice at St. James's Palace before moving into Ivy Cottage. However, while Eugenie may have moved away from her sister, she's not far away from her family in her new home.
In August, Eugenie also paid a visit to her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, at her Scottish residence on the Balmoral estate along with her husband, Brooksbank.
