Prince Harry and Meghan Markle move out of Kensington Palace

adminNovember 24, 2018




Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are moving away from Prince William and Kate Middleton!

Just weeks after it was announced that the Royal Fab Four were considering dividing their joint "court" at Kensington Palace, Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, have decided to move, according to Emily Andrews of Sun.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move to the 10-room Frogmore Cottage on the grounds of Windsor Castle, reports Andrews. Her new Home Park residence will also feature a day care center and a space for a personal gym and a yoga studio, of which Meghan is an avid fan.

Although the cabin will need some renovations (since it is currently divided into five units as the home of the palace staff), Meghan and Harry plan to move in 2019, according to the royal reporter.

The residence, which was given to them by Queen Elizabeth, is already a familiar place for Harry and Meghan: it is where the couple celebrated their wedding ceremony and shot their engagement photos!

Meanwhile, Prince William, Kate and their three children intend to stay at Kensington Palace.

In early November, the newspaper U.K., The Sunday Times, reported that a move could take place in the spring after Meghan gave birth to the couple's first child.

With William one day ready to be the Prince of Wales, and all that goes with his father's heir, Prince Charles, Harry and Meghan will want to forge their own way, so it's a natural time to separate, experts believe. (The palace had no comment.)

"Meghan's arrival has changed the dynamics of the relationship quite significantly," royalty author Sally Bedell Smith told PEOPLE. "It's inevitable and practical because it gives Harry and Meghan some freedom to build their own collection of interests and charities."

"Meghan has very strong opinions about what she is interested in and that may be what Harry shares, but not what William and Kate share," he added.

However, it is likely that the four will maintain their successful Royal Foundation, under which they organize their charitable efforts and their innovative mental health campaign, intact.

"They have brought together many charities that work in the same sector to empower them and lend their positions," said Bedell Smith. "But they will increasingly pursue their own respective interests."

"I think it's really just a change in priorities and interests," he added. "William is a husband and father of three children and focuses primarily on them, and Harry will soon be a father."

"Each of them will continue to be the very strong representative of the Queen in carrying out tasks and tasks that she, and probably her father, want them to do," he continued. "They are going to share this dissemination of activities on behalf of the Queen."
