Looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton are potentially about to add yet another home to their growing list of properties. The Sun reports that King Charles has "earmarked" Frogmore House for the new Prince and Princess of Wales, though it remains to be seen if they'll move in.
The house (really, it's a full blown mansion) was built in 1684 on the Windsor Estate, and if it sounds familiar that might be because it was the location of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding reception. And speaking of the Sussexes, Frogmore House is fully different from their home Frogmore Cottage—which is nearby and also on the Windsor Estate.
Reminder that William and Kate literally just moved from their country home Anmer Hall to Adelaide Cottage, and apparently they aren't super thrilled about the prospect of moving again now that Charles is King and a royal property re-shuffle is taking place. But The Sun reports that while there's no info on what "the Wales family would do" with Frogmore House, its "attraction may be too great to ignore."
Meanwhile, The Daily Mail recently reported that there's a "radical drive to overhaul the vast Royal estate," and there was even some talk of moving William and Kate into Windsor Castle proper. As the outlet put it: "Charles's wide-ranging plans include turning Balmoral into a museum to the Queen and moving the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge into Windsor Castle."
"The Prince of Wales [now King Charles] strongly believes that these places have got to deliver something for the public beyond just being somewhere for members of the Royal Family to live," a source said. "Everything is seen through the lens of the question: 'What value is this offering to the public? Everybody recognizes it makes no sense to run so many residences but if you give them up entirely you will never get them back when Prince George and the younger Royals grow up and need somewhere to live."
