As newlyweds, living near the busy social life of London was ideal for Meghan and Harry as they defined their roles and accepted duties within the royal family’s day-to-day activities.
Their first home was the two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage on the grounds at Kensington Palace. It was a familiar home for Prince Harry as he spent much of his childhood at Kensington with his brother, William and their mother, the late Princess of Wales.
As new parents, Meghan and Harry decided London was not the ideal location for their growing family. The following are eight reasons life at Frogmore Cottage will be better for Meghan, Harry, and Archie.
Located just 22 miles southwest of London and set in Windsor Estate, Frogmore Cottage was built in 1801 during the reign of King George III for his wife, Queen Charlotte as an escape from royal duties. Similarly, the Sussex’s will enjoy the retreat from city life while still being near Windsor Castle where the Queen spends most of her weekends.
Surrounded by gardens and within the Windsor security zone, the new family will enjoy more privacy in the secluded and peaceful cottage. Unlike living in London, there will be less opportunity for paparazzi and curious looky-loos to see them coming or going.
