Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, pictured arriving at the Royal Variety Performance in London, England on November 19, 2018, are moving from Kensington Palace in 2019.

Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are moving to Frogmore Cottage on the royal family's Windsor Estate early next year in time for their first child's birth in the spring, they said on Saturday (Nov 24). The cottage has 10 bedrooms and a separate nursery, compared to the two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage where they now live.

From early 2019, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will take up residence in Frogmore Cottage, a Grade II listed two-storey, stucco-faced house sitting in the north of the Frogmore Estate on the Windsor Estate.

Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, held their wedding reception at Frogmore House, situated across from their new cottage, which was gifted to them by Queen Elizabeth.

When the work is completed, it will be a 10-bedroom home with space for a gym and yoga studio. Even with the addition of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's firstborn, it would merely be a drop in a bucket given how sprawling the palace is.

According to reports, the cottage is now undergoing a large refurbishment to transform it from staff accommodation to a family home.

Daily Star Online has contacted Kensington Palace for comment.

It's worth noting however that they will be keeping an office at Kensington Palace, and they also aren't the only members of the family to potentially express a preference for a more suburban life.

The grounds include the Mausoleum of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and the Royal Burial Ground where Harry's great great uncle, the abdicated King Edward VIII, is buried with his wife Wallis Simpson - later Duchess of Windsor.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge intend to throw a special Christmas party on December 4 in honour of military personnel who are spending the holidays away from family.

Continuing the source added that they "don't really get on".
