Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moving out of Kensington Palace amid 'tension' with Prince William
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are planning to move entirely out of Kensington Palace by next year, said a royal source
According to a new report, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle do not want to live next to Prince William and Kate Middleton anymore, and that is the reason why the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are planning to move entirely out of Kensington Palace by next year, said a royal source.
The same report claims that Meghan and Harry, who recently announced that they are going to have a baby in the Spring, are planning to set up their home near Windsor Castle at Frogmore House.
The royal insider said, "The initial plan was for Harry and Meghan to move out of their cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace and into one of the main apartments. "But there has been a bit of tension between the brothers."
"Now Harry and Meghan don’t want to live next to William and Kate and want to strike out on their own. They need more room and hope Frogmore Cottage will be ready in time for when they have the baby."
According to royal correspondent Emily Andrews, the grounds of the estate have a lot of sentimental value for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as they were married at Windsor Castle and held their evening wedding reception at the English country house.
Last week, another royal source also claimed that "Harry and Meghan want to move and need more space but they don’t want to live next door to William and Catherine". The insider added: "They will soon have separate offices and separate lives, so it would make sense for them to live further afield. There is no reason why their London home has to be at Kensington Palace. There are plenty of other options, including using their own money to buy their own place."
As per reports, the Queen gifted the Frogmore Cottage to Meghan and Harry, and it currently underwent a multi-million-pound facelift paid for by the taxpayers. Despite reports of a tension between the 'fab four' of the royal family, it was reported a few days ago that Kate Middleton was going all out to plan a surprise baby shower for her sister-in-law Meghan.
A source close to the royal family shared that, given it is Meghan Markle's first child, "Kate is going all out to make it extra special – a truly unforgettable day."
"She's a complete perfectionist and has already begun planning the celebration months in advance. Duchess Kate considered having the shower at Soho Farmhouse, but thinks it'll be easier to host it at her Kensington Palace apartment," the source claimed.
