Moving day is fast approaching for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
A new report from ITV News says that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move out of Kensington Palace, and into Frogmore Cottage, in March. That timeline puts the couple in Windsor several weeks before Meghan gives birth (during a recent appearance, she revealed that her due date is in late April.)
The home is undergoing massive renovations to turn it into a habitable single-family home. It’s said to include an eco-friendly nursery—complete with vegan paint—as well as many high-tech gadgets.
The designer who’s reportedly behind it all is Vicky Charles of Charles & Co design studio. Charles is best known for her work with the Soho House group, which includes properties like The Ned in downtown London and Soho Farmhouse
Although, some decor may be coming from the Queen herself: According to Vanity Fair, Queen Elizabeth is allowing Meghan and Harry to pick a couple pieces of art from the royal collection. “They have been presented with a list of paintings that would be available to them and they are making up their minds as to what they would like to hang in their new home,” a source said.
Their new life at Frogmore Cottage will be much different from their current one at Nottingham Cottage, which is on the grounds of Kensington Palace. First, they’ll have more space: Nottingham is a two-bedroom abode, whereas Frogmore could potentially have 10.
Then, there’s the atmosphere: Whereas Nottingham is set in the heart of London, Frogmore is about an hour outside. It’s a suburban existence—their children will likely play amongst Frogmore’s idyllic gardens and on Windsor’s grand grounds.
For Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, serene days are on the horizon.
