Cluster of outbuildings associated with Kensington Palace, including Wren House

Wren House is a house on the grounds of Kensington Palace in London.[1][2][3] Wren House has been occupied by Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, one of Queen Elizabeth II's cousins, since 1978.[4][5]

When Kensington Palace was made the Royal Residence, architect Christopher Wren was tasked to expand the existing structure.[1][2][3][5] He added a cluster of cottages that included: Wren House; Ivy Cottage, the home of Princess Eugenie of York; and Nottingham Cottage, the former home of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.
