Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s move to Windsor has been postponed.
The couple – who are expecting their first child together – were due to move into 10-bedroom Frogmore Cottage on the grounds of Windsor Castle this week but their plans have been delayed until next month as the renovations are behind schedule.
“It’s been all hands to the pump. The builders have worked all week whatever the weather. But they keep making changes, particularly on the layout,” a source told The Sun.
“The word is they’ve been quite demanding, which is understandable as what homeowner doesn’t want their house to be perfect?
“Given the scale of the project, a three or four-week delay isn’t too bad.”
Harry and Meghan currently reside in the two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace in London but announced their Windsor move in November.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will more to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate early next year as they prepare for the arrival of their first child. The couple have lived at Nottingham Cottage since their engagement last year. Windsor is a very special place for Their Royal Highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.
They are expected to move in just weeks before their baby is born.
