Notably, Prince William and Kate Middleton also have their own country residence, which isn't far from the Queen's Sandringham estate.

But what do we know about Frogmore Cottage, which is now empty although remains a beloved part of the Royal collection?

With ten-bedrooms, there is plenty of privacy and space at the Grade II listed building which is now undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment.

However there are reports of tensions between the two brothers and so the Sussex family are striking out alone. The Duke and Duchess held their wedding party at nearby Frogmore House, following their marriage in St George's Chapel, Windsor.

They also had their engagement photographs taken there.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are set to leave Kensington Palace for a new home in Windsor. Frogmore Cottage was formerly known as Double Garden Cottage and faces the stunning Frogmore House.

However it's not ready for them to move in straight away, as it's now divided into five separate units for palace staff to reside. It is believed they will be remodelled and transformed into a more family-friendly home.

Frogmore's name comes from the high number of frogs that live in the low-lying marshy area near the River Thames.

It was purchased by Queen Charlotte in 1790.


Windsor Castle is one of Queen Elizabeth II's favorite homes.

Frogmore House is in a peaceful and secluded location, surrounded by 35 acres of lush vegetation and Berkshire countryside.

Meghan, 37, has made no secret of her wish to be a mother, saying in a 2016 interview that it was on her "bucket list".

Frogmore House was once home to Queen Victoria's mother, the Duchess of Kent, for nearly 20 years.

Frogmore Cottage was once home to Abdul Karim, Victoria's "Munshi", or teacher.

Frogmore House is only open to members of the public on three days per year, when all proceeds are donated to charity.

As HELLO reports, an estimated 7500 people serving in the military will spend Christmas away from their family. The couple were widely expected to move to a larger property as their family grew and Apartment 1 at Kensington Palace had been talked about as a potential destination.

Pregnant Meghan and Prince Harry yesterday announced they were moving out of Kensington Palace next month.

The Sussexes have been living at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace since announcing their engagement in November previous year. They will keep their office at Kensington Palace, which is also home to Prince William and his wife Kate.
