Where will Meghan and Harry's baby live?
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to move to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, ahead of their baby’s birth, expected in April.
The Grade II listed house has been undergoing extensive renovations since the beginning of the year in order to transform it from staff accommodation to a modern 10-bedroom family home for Meghan, Harry and their newborn.
The couple have reportedly called in the interior designer of Soho House, Vicky Charles, to help decorate their new home.
The refurbishment of the property is set to cost a reported £3million, covered by the Sovereign Grant (funded by the taxpayer) while the couple will pay for the furnishings and decor.
The new abode will allow them some privacy as they settle into their life as new parents. Similarly, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent time at their Norfolk home Anmer Hall, when George and Charlotte were born.
The cottage, located on the Frogmore Estate in Windsor, was built in 1801 at the direction of Queen Charlotte.

When the announcement about their move was made, 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 duke and duchess were married at St George’s Chapel in Windsor and had their reception at the nearby Frogmore House on the estate.
Since 2017, Harry and Meghan have lived in Nottingham Cottage, a two-bedroom house in the grounds of Kensington Palace in London.
It’s where the prince proposed to the former actress in November 2017, as they cooked roast chicken and is just a stone’s throw away from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s home at Apartment 1A.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will now have their own royal household, based at Buckingham Palace, formally splitting from their joint household with the Cambridges at Kensington Palace.
