Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Moving Away from Kensington Palace
Since getting engaged, tying the knot, and announcing that they’re expecting their first child, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been living their best newlywed life inside Kensington Palace’s two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage. Now they have their eyes set on a new pad, and they’ll soon be making the move to a more spacious home with room for their growing family.
Kensington Palace confirmed the news on Saturday, November 24, revealing that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be moving early next year. They won’t have to travel too far, though. Their new abode, Frogmore Cottage, is located on Queen Elizabeth II’s Windsor estate, just 20 miles away.
“Windsor is a very special place for their royal highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate,” the royal statement said. “The Duke and Duchess’ official office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace.”
Frogmore Cottage will be quite the spacious upgrade, with 10 rooms and a separate nursery for their little one. Although the reason behind the surprise decision has not been confirmed, it may have something to do with Prince Harry and his brother, Prince William, who lives in a 20-room apartment in Kensington Palace with his family, “considering a formal division of their joint royal household… and the creation of separate courts to reflect their increasingly different responsibilities,” as reported by The Times.
