Despite rumours that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would move out of Nottingham Cottage and into the 21-bedroom Kensington Palace apartment next door to Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are leaving Kensington Palace altogether, moving to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate ahead of the arrival of their first child.
Frogmore Cottage already holds a special place in the Duke and Duchess' heart as it was where they held their private evening wedding party and where their engagement photos were taken.
The residence has recently been used to house members of the royal staff and is currently undergoing major renovations, ahead of Harry and Meghan moving in in early 2019.
According to The Telegraph, Frogmore Cottage will be turned "into a family home with modern amenities," which will reportedly include a spa, a yoga studio, and a nursery.
"It needs major building work to turn it back into a luxury family home, boasting 10 bedrooms & a new nursery plus space for a gym & yoga studio," royal reporter Emily Andrews wrote on Twitter. "Currently it’s been chopped up into 5 units where palace staff have been living. Harry, Meghan & baby Sussex hope to move in next year."
