The Sussexes have a new address. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially moved from Kensington Palace to Windsor Castle ahead of the birth of their first child together, marking one of the biggest shifts in their lifestyles since the wedding day.
The couple is now tucked away in their newly-renovated home, Frogmore Cottage, on the Frogmore Estate where they enjoyed their evening reception in May 2018. “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.
The move also symbolically represents Harry and Meghan’s break from sharing a joint household with Prince William and Kate Middleton under the Kensington Palace umbrella.
“The Queen has agreed to the creation of a new household for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following their marriage in May last year,” a statement from the Queen’s office previously revealed. “The Household, which will be created with the support of the Queen and the Prince of Wales, will be established in the spring. The Duke of Sussex currently has his own private office, which has been supporting the Duchess since Their Royal Highnesses engagement in November 2017. This long-planned move will ensure that permanent support arrangements for the Duke and Duchess’ work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage.”
Markle and Harry are anticipating the arrival of their first child together this spring.
