The British prince Harry and Meghan can unpack their moving boxes. According to British media, the two have officially left Kensington Palace.
Harry and Meghan now live in Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, not far from Windsor Castle. That is just in time for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to welcome their first child. The couple wanted to be settled before the baby came and Meghan is due somewhere late this month.
Frogmore Cottage is on the grounds of Windsor Castle and not on Kensington Palace in the heart of London, where Harry’s brother William and his family live. Frogmore is thirty kilometers west of the British capital. The couple therefore pulls a lot further away from the rest of the royal family. The move allegedly happened with a view to their first baby. Meghan and Harry would rather see their first son or daughter grow up in a rural setting. The historic house where they now move in was built in the 18th century for Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III. Frogmore Cottage was also the place where their wedding reception took place.
It was always expected that Meghan and Harry would move after Nottingham Cottage, where they lived so far, to a spacious apartment in Kensington Palace itself, just like William and Kate. But that is not the case, even though the apartment next to that of the future crown prince has been thoroughly renovated in recent months for that reason. It was delivered in October; price tag for the works: 1.24 million euros. The move could also have something to do with the rumors that Meghan and Kate cannot go through one door, but the British palace is denying that.
