While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might be waiting to move to their new home Frogmore Cottage before their baby arrives, it seems that they’ve snapped up another pad in the interim.
The couple are currently living in Nottingham Cottage within Kensington Palace, but according to The Sun, they’re also renting a place in the Cotswolds.
The 18th century Grade II listed farmhouse is reportedly worth £2.5 million (AU$4.5 million) and boasts four bedrooms, one of which has been converted to a dressing room.

An attached barn conversion features a double kitchen, plus a sitting area with floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s a large dining room, plus an outdoor seating area.
The country bolthole also comes with a separate two-bedroom cottage within the grounds for staff or guests.
While the property itself is quite large, it sits on an extensive plot of land which gives Harry and Meghan plenty of privacy. The house is nestled in a valley on a 4,000-acre estate and is hidden from the public as it’s tucked away down a private driveway off a lightly used lane.
According to The Sun, Harry and Meghan began renting the property early last year on a two-year lease and moved in just before their May wedding.
They are believed to have played host to a number of celebrity friends at their Cotswold home, including George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams and Priyanka Chopra.
Meghan is said to love the Cotswolds and their rented home because of the privacy it gives her and Harry.
Local residents have said that “heavy security measures” have been put in place since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved in.
