Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will move to Frogmore Cottage within a few weeks. The couple is currently staying at Kensington Palace, but has been busy preparing their new home for their growing family. The move is an exciting transition for the couple and marks a change to a quieter lifestyle.
The queen gave Frogmore Cottage to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as a gift
At the end of last year, Kensington Palace issued a statement that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would move to Frogmore Cottage to prepare for the expansion of their family. This was a change from the previously announced plans that the couple would move to Kensington Palace where Prince William and his family live.
Frogmore Cottage is located on the Windsor estate. It is a short distance from Windsor Castle where the couple got married. While many wondered if the move confirmed that there was a fight between the Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge, the cottage will offer more privacy for the couple and enable them to create their own family routine.
The couple will have to wait a little longer to move in
Prince Harry and his wife were all to move to their new home this month, but it looks like things have been postponed. According to The Sun, the royal couple have made quite a few changes in recent weeks, making the work longer than expected. A source told The Sun: “It has been all hands on the pump. The builders have been working all week, whatever the weather. But they keep making changes, especially on the layout.”
The house was once divided into five units and was used as a home for the royal staff. The estate now has 10 bedrooms, a daycare center and a yoga studio. In the 10 bedrooms there will be a room for Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. Ragland is likely to fly into the UK now to help her daughter prepare for her new baby and help take care of the child once he or she is born.
Contractors work furiously to prepare the home before the royal baby arrives. At the moment it is uncertain whether the house will be ready within a few weeks before Meghan gives birth.
What would Princess Diana think of the couple’s move to Frogmore Cottage?
We think Princess Diana would be very happy with the move to Frogmore Cottage. The residence is located in the Home Park and is not open to the public. This gives the couple extra privacy and security when they attach themselves to their little one.
After Princess Diana was separated from Prince Charles, the band revealed how unhappy she was with her lack of privacy. She could be heard saying, “I gave up everything, I gave up everything,” she continued. “I can’t go for lunch. I certainly don’t go out in the evenings. I hide in the back of cars to get out. I don’t want to be in the paper.”
When a reporter told her that she had to accept that she was in public, she closed them with the announcement that she had just been separated from the public eye. She cried, “I don’t want to be in the foreground. I hate it! It cost me a lot!”
Diana suffered a lot of pain due to her lack of privacy and ultimately played a role in her death. We can only imagine that Prince Harry’s mother wanted her son to get away and just be with his family. Frogmore Palace seems the perfect move for the family.
