Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Have Moved Out of Kensington Palace Ahead of Baby's Birth

By

Everything is falling in place for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they await the arrival of their first child.

A royal source tells ET that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have officially made the move to Frogmore Cottage from Nottingham Cottage. Last November, the palace announced the couple's big move from their two-bedroom home at Kensington Palace into a 10-bedroom home at Windsor Castle.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate early next year as they prepare for the arrival of their first child," the statement read. "The couple have lived at Nottingham Cottage since their engagement last year. 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’ official office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace."

A source told ET last month that 34-year-old Harry and 37-year-old Meghan's new home includes "an eco-friendly green energy unit" as well as "two conservatory extensions and extensive landscaping so baby Sussex will have privacy." The residence is close to the house where their evening reception was held after their wedding in May, and the same location where their engagement photos were taken.

"Windsor was the perfect fit for Harry and Meghan," the source said. "The 10-bedroom house has more space for children when they expand their family and of course has a special place in their hearts."

Harry's older brother, Prince William, and his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, live on Kensington Palace property. In November, a source told ET that William and Harry were going in "different paths." Last month, Meghan and Harry officially split households from Will and Kate.

"William and Harry will have different responsibilities in the future as William prepares for his life as the heir to the throne," the source explained.

Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan are busy preparing for their child's birth. A source recently told ET that just a few weeks ago, the couple made a visit to the natural remedy store ilapothecary, described on its website as an "urban hideaway" that offers "healing therapies, unique remedies and workshops to help you create solutions to issues you may be facing, relieve bodily symptoms and escape from stresses of urban living."

“Harry is focusing all his energy on the birth of his first child," the source said. "He can’t wait to become a father. He’s doing everything he can to put Meghan at ease.”
