The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are moving out of Kensington Palace and into a ‘‘very special place” — the Windsor Estate.
But a new report states the pair are instead relocating to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
Despite the $2.5m apartment — which is next to door to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — having just completed a slick new upgrade, the pair have been gifted Frogmore by the Queen, The Sun reports.
The sprawling property has a nursery for the baby and ten bedrooms, compared to just two where they currently reside at Nottingham Cottage.
There’s also thought to be space for a ‘gym and yoga studio’, something Meghan has previously said she loves to do.
However it’s not ready for them to move in straight away, as it’s currently divided into five separate units for palace staff to reside.
The house holds lots of sentiment for the pair, with Harry and Meghan hosting their evening wedding party there and it being the spot where they had their engagement photos taken.
“They need more room and hope Frogmore Cottage will be ready in time for when they have the baby,” a source told the publication.
It’s also been claimed a motivation for the big change in plans was down to “tension” between Harry and his big brother William.
“There has been a bit of tension between the brothers,” the source said. “Now Harry and Meghan don’t want to live next to William and Kate and want to strike out on their own.”
While there has been no confirmation of any struggles between Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana’s two boys, the palace did issue a statement about the move.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate early next year as they prepare for the arrival of their first child.
Windsor is a very special place for Their Royal Hignesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate.”
