Meghan and Harry have, however, ended all speculations with the announcement of their new official home.

The couple, who live on the grounds of Kensington Palace, is set to move into Windsor's Frogmore Cottage after the birth of their first child in spring 2019

Since their engagement last year, Meghan and Prince Harry live in a two bedroom apartment and have remained neighbors with Prince William and Kate, whose apartment has twenty bedrooms.

To accommodate the Sussex's growing family, it was rumored that the duo would move into the 21-bedroom apartment next to Prince William and Kate in Kensington Palace.

However, it seems the couple wants to be several miles away, and now the Queen has allocated the Frogmore Cottage as Meghan and Harry's official residence.

Frogmore Cottage, which is within the private Home Park, is of great significance to the couple. Frogmore was the location where the couple shot their beautiful engagement pictures, and it was where their wedding reception was held.

The building, which dates back to the 17th century, was the country home of Queen Charlotte and the residence of Queen Victoria's mother.

Last refurbished in the 1980s, the building will be renovated into a luxury family house.

Frogmore Cottage is presently a residence for staff and it is divided into five units; therefore, it needs to be retouched to fit the needs of the royals.

At the end of the renovation, the cottage will have ten bedrooms, a gym, a yoga studio and a new nursery space for Meghan and Harry's children.

Security will also be upped at the cottage, as the building is easily accessible to the public because it possesses only a small fence and a ‘private’ sign. The Royals’ office will, however, remain at Kensington Palace with Prince William and Kate Middleton.

We love it that Prince Harry and Meghan are growing their family, but we hope this does not affect the Sussex's closeness with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
