Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are busy preparing for a whole new chapter of their lives: a new baby is on the way, and they're about to move into Frogmore Cottage after spending over a year in Kensington Palace.

The soon-to-be-parents are apparently very much looking forward to having a normal life. Sort of.

A source told People that Meghan and Harry see their move to Windsor from Kensington Palace as an escape from the "fish bowl" parts of Kensington Palace life. But before you jump to any conclusions about a massive falling out between them and Kate and William, it's more about them craving their own family time.

The source said moving “is a really healthy thing to do" for Meghan and Harry, and they'll benefit from some time away from royal life.

“I presume it must be nice to get out and away,” the source added. “Without neighbours who are all either family or staff [at Kensington Palace], they will now have their own thing.”

Unfortunately, the move has been delayed - so that excitement might have to wait a little while.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were apparently due to move from Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace this week, giving them time to settle in before the arrival of the baby in late April. But workmen are still on site, with building work looking likely to take three or four weeks longer than expected.

Nothing like a bit of extra stress to see you through the final stages of your pregnancy...
