Royal Couple Install New Fireplace In Windsor Cottage

After a number of delays Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally moved in to Frogmore House in Windsor.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been looking forward to moving into Frogmore House in Windsor, which they have spent the last few months renovating, including fitting a grand fireplace. 

The expectant parents, who are due to have their first child later this month, have finally moved into the royal residence, after a delay in building work forced them to stay in Nottingham House on the grounds of Kensington Palace for longer than they anticipated.

A source told The Sun that renovation work on Frogmore House was continuously delayed, saying: “The builders have worked all week whatever the weather. But they keep making changes, particularly on the layout.”

Frogmore House was originally built in the 17th Century and has been one of the royal residences since 1792. Since its construction, it has undergone several renovations, including most recently in the 1980s when much of it was repaired and restored.

However, it is thought the newlyweds, who held their wedding reception just next door in May 2018, have spent £3 million of the Sovereign Grant’s money on interior design changes.

They have restored it into a family home from staff quarters, and have reportedly installed a yoga studio, painted the nursery in vegan and organic paint, fitted a double staircase, and had a grand fireplace put in.

The Mirror reported that the happy couple hired Soho Houses’s designer Vicky Charles to give the house a complete overhaul, including creating a kitchen-diner and five en-suite bedrooms.
