Madonna is in the market for a subletter, apparently, and she has two high-profile tenants in mind: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The Madame X singer posted an Instagram video on Tuesday, February 4, saying she’d love to have Meghan and Harry sublet her apartment in New York City if they’re looking. You see, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently announced they’re stepping down as senior members of the royal family and will be splitting their time between North America and the U.K. Right now it appears they’ve taken up residence in Canada, but Madonna is urging the couple to move to Manhattan—to her Central Park West condo, specifically.
“Harry, don’t run off to Canada. It’s so boring there,” Madonna said in her recent IG video. “I’ll let them sublet my apartment in Central Park West. It’s a two-bedroom. It’s got the best view of Manhattan. An incredible balcony. Buckingham Palace has got nothing on CPW.”
Confusing Canada shade aside (“boring”?!), I’m all for this idea. Of course, this probably won’t happen any time soon. Madonna’s clearly just being cheeky here—and even if she were serious, according to the Daily Mail, she’s required by building rules to be present whenever guests, and even family, stay at her apartment. Seeing as how she’s currently overseas for her Madame X Tour, that’s a problem.
But let’s just take a second to imagine Madonna, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle all living together. As roommates. Would Markle start wearing an eye patch to match Madonna’s current aesthetic? Would Madonna lull Baby Archie to sleep every night by singing “Like a Prayer”? Would she make Prince Harry learn the choreography to “Vogue”? All I know is if this happened, Madonna and Queen Elizabeth II would have to cross paths (again) at some point. I need the Queen of Pop and the Queen of England to be friends.
