Have Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Moved Into Frogmore Cottage Yet?

Big changes are happening for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The Duchess of Sussex has gone on unofficial maternity leave, and the pair are putting the final touches on their 10-bedroom mansion in Windsor –Frogmore Cottage.

Since 2017 –the royal couple have lived at Prince Harry’s former bachelor pad Nottingham Cottage. The 2-bedroom flat is located at Kensington Palace in London and is steps away from Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William’s 20-room apartment. With the Duchess of Sussex’s due date only weeks away, have the Sussexes moved into Frogmore Cottage yet?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry haven’t moved into Frogmore Cottage yet

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had hoped to be all moved into Frogmore Cottage by now. Unfortunately, they are still hanging tight at Nottingham Cottage because renovations at Frogmore are taking just a bit longer than expected. A royal insider told Entertainment Tonight that the royal couple is, “due to move into Frogmore Cottage, provided the renovation works are complete in the next few weeks.”

Inside Frogmore Cottage

Frogmore Cottage or Frogmore House, as it’s also called, will be perfect for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. In addition to the 10-bedrooms –one which will be occupied by Markle’s mom Doria Ragland, the home also has a yoga studio, gym, and of course, Baby Sussex’s nursery. Entertainment Tonight reports,

Frogmore, which is on the grounds of the queen’s Windsor Estate, has 10 bedrooms and will include an eco-friendly green energy unit as well as two conservatory extensions and extensive landscaping so baby Sussex will have privacy. The couple is really excited about the impending birth. Windsor was the perfect fit for Harry and Meghan. The 10-bedroom house has more space for children when they expand their family and of course has a special place in their hearts.

Did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle try to form their own royal court?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially split their household from Kate Middleton and Prince William –but they wanted to take things a step further. An insider told the Sunday Times,

They wanted their household to be entirely independent of Buckingham Palace, but were told no. There is an institutional structure that doesn’t allow that kind of independence. The feeling is that it’s good to have the Sussexes under the jurisdiction of Buckingham Palace, so they can’t just go off and do their own thing.

Apparently, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted to further a global “Sussex brand.” They wanted to stand apart from Buckingham Palace to pursue their humanitarian and philanthropic efforts on their own accord. Markle also wants to continue her role as an activist. However, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles shot them down.
