Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Have Chosen a VERY Special Place As Their New Home
As Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle wait for the arrival of their royal baby in a couple of weeks, sources reveal that they’ve already moved from the Kensington Palace to their new royal residence. According to the couple, they chose this place because of their deep emotional association with it. What makes this place so special that Prince Harry and Meghan preferred it over the Kensington Palace? Let’s find out.
The Big Move
According to PEOPLE, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially vacated the Kensington Palace to move into their new official residence. The couple decided to make Windsor Castle’s Frogmore cottage their new home as they wait for their first royal baby’s arrival together. They revealed the place was special to them because it was where they held their evening wedding reception last year in May.
Aside from that, the cottage was also where Meghan and Prince Harry took their iconic engagement photos. According to their spokesman, the said royal residence served as the witness to their budding love story, so it’s only fitting that they build their family in the very same place. The couple initially wanted to move in Frogmore Cottage last November after Meghan announced her pregnancy.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have been living in Nottingham’s Cottage in Kensington Palace since their engagement. However, the couple expressed the two-bedroom home isn’t likely to become their official residence, especially once their first child arrives.
As they deal with the pressure not only of their newborn royal baby’s imminent arrival but also with Meghan’s duties as a new Duchess, the royal couple wants to build a sanctuary where they can bond with their baby away from the media’s prying eyes, which is why they decided that the best place to build their little family is in Windsor Castle’s Frogmore Cottage. According to sources, Prince Harry and Meghan couldn’t wait to meet their first child and take on a new journey of parenthood.
According to sources, the Frogmore Cottage will have to undergo major renovations to accommodate the royal couple, though. The spokesman says the cottage was formerly divided into five units to serve as the home for palace staff. As Meghan and Prince Harry move, the house needs to be refurbished to become their new family residence.
Meanwhile, the royal couple won’t have to worry about expanding their family since the Windsor Castle has more space to accommodate more children. Aside from moving to Windsor Castle, Prince Harry and Meghan recently split up their joint court jurisdiction at Kensington Palace with Prince William and Kate. This action caused the two royal couples to separate their offices and royal households, leading to speculations of a rift between the two brothers.
