Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Officially Moving to Windsor
A year ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement was announced, and now one baby announcement and royal tour later, the place they will permanently call home has been revealed. Kensington Palace confirmed on Saturday that the couple will be leaving London and moving to Frogmore Cottage on the Frogmore Estate grounds, the Windsor setting where their engagement photos were taken and their intimate wedding reception was held. “Windsor is a very special place for Their Royal Highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate,” a statement from Kensington Palace reads.
In the past months, there has been endless speculation about where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will start their growing family. Since the royal wedding in May, the pair has been residing in Nottingham Cottage, a cozy two-bedroom abode on the Kensington Palace grounds. While there were rumors that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would follow the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s footsteps and move into Kensington Palace, the newlyweds are anything but predictable.
Dating back to the 1680s, Frogmore Cottage is currently being converted from staff quarters into an idyllic family home, reports the Telegraph. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will move into the 10-bedroom house in early 2019, so just in time to nest before the arrival of their first child.
A message from The Duke and Duchess of Sussex: “Thank you New Zealand for the most wonderful last week of our tour. It has been a privilege to meet so many friendly Kiwis. Australia, Fiji, Tonga and NZ - we leave feeling inspired and reminded of how every single one of us can make a difference.” ‘The rain that refreshes the parched ground, is made up of single drops’ - Kate Sheppard #commonwealth 🇳🇿🇦🇺🇫🇯🇹🇴 📷 The Duke of Sussex
