Kensington Palace confirmed the news on Saturday, November 24. 1
The palace announced that they would be moving out of the two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage, where they've been living since November 2017, and recolating to Windsor.
Queen Elizabeth II reportedly gave the couple the home. 2
According to The Sun's Royal Correspondent Emily Andrews, the home will be remodeled in order to accomodate the couple.
The home is located right across from the Frogmore House, where the pair celebrated their wedding. 3
"The Queen has given them Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. It’s within the private Home Park and faces the beautiful grounds of Frogmore House," Emily tweeted. "It’s where they had their private evening wedding party & where their gorgeous engagement pictures were shot."
The newlyweds are preparing to welcome their first child into the world. 5
The couple announced in October 2018 that they are expecting a baby. The baby is due in the spring of 2019, which gives them more than enough time to get their new home ready for their little one.
The cottage's privacy was reportedly appealing to the royal pair. 6
Their new home is located within the 35-acre Windsor Castle Home Park estate and provides plenty of airtight security.
The home will allow the couple and their growing family to have plenty of privacy. 7
The home is reported located 25 miles away from London.
The Frogmore Cottage has been used to house palace staff. 8
"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," the correspondent tweeted. "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."
The couple doesn't have to worry about safety since the cottage is known to be safe and secure. 9
Royal Commentator for BBC Dickie Arbiter said it was a perfect location for the new family. "It's set in a delightful location, safe and secure--away from prying eyes--and lots of space to bring up a family," he tweeted when the moving news went public. "The only downside--aeroplanes in and out of Heathrow."
The area is special to the couple, since it's been where they celebrated so many of their relationship milestones. 11
They took their engagement photos in Frogmore House, which is located within the Windsor estate, in November 2017. The couple then tied the knot at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19, and Prince Charles hosted a reception for them at the Frogmore House following the ceremony.
