The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are going to move out of Kensington Palace as they prepare for the birth of their first child.

Harry and Meghan will move to Frogmore Cottage, in the grounds of Windsor Castle, early next year.

The 17th-century royal residence, which lies about 45 minutes from central London, was the venue for their wedding reception.
Kensington Palace said: “Windsor is a very special place for their royal highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate.”

The move means they will be 20 miles away from William, Kate and their three children: George, Charlotte and Louis.

However, the couple’s office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace.

Our correspondent reported that Frogmore Cottage has been undergoing a large refurbishment to transform it from staff accommodation into a family home.

When the work is completed, it will be a 10-bedroom home with space for a gym and yoga studio.

Harry and Meghan have lived in Nottingham Cottage, in the grounds of Kensington Palace, since their engagement in 2017.

It was officially announced in October that the couple were expecting their first child next spring.

The baby will be seventh in the line of succession, bumping Harry’s uncle, the Duke of York, into eighth place.
