Why Exactly Are Harry and Meghan Moving Out Away From Prince William?

Harry and Meghan announced their pregnancy in October.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's new home faces the lovely grounds of Frogmore House - the large white stately home where the couple had their private evening wedding reception in May 2018.

Windsor is a "very special place" for the couple for obvious reasons but the move has led to speculative reports of a rift between Harry and William, as well as their wives.

It is understood that Harry and Meghan hope to turn Frogmore Cottage into a five-bedroom family home, with enough room for a live-in nanny and a nursery for their baby.

An "exhausted" Duchess of Sussex has pulled out of a visit to Zambia over fears about the Zika virus - deciding to spend quality time with her mother Doria instead.

As far as those on the ground in Zambia were concerned both Meghan and Harry were going.

Kensington Palace confirmed on Saturday that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be moving out of the central-London residence and into a new home at Windsor's Frogmore Cottage early next year.

But a royal source told the Mail the move was down to Meghan, who they claim is used to getting her own way. Harry "loves his brother and his little niece and nephews" but he wants to move out of Kensington Palace because, "he wants to escape the goldfish bowl of royal life for the sake of his marriage and his unborn child".

"Kate and Meghan are very different people", the source told the Daily Mail.

Despite the $2.5m apartment - which is next to door to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - having just completed a slick new upgrade, the pair have been gifted Frogmore by the Queen, The Sun reports.

This will become their official residence, while their office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace.

It is inevitable and practical because it gives Harry and Meghan some freedom to build up their own collection of interests and charities.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are transforming Frogmore Cottage into the flawless family home before relocating from London to Windsor early next year.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said the costs of any substantial building work would be covered by the Sovereign Grant, which is ultimately funded by the taxpayer.
