Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced that they are moving out of their Kensington Palace home, relocating ahead of the birth of their first child, reportedly due in April.

The millennial couple will be setting up camp in Frogmore Cottage, on the Frogmore Estate of Windsor Castle, Berskshire, with reports that they didn’t want their children to grow up in ‘the fishbowl of Kensington Palace’.

It's hardly surprising that the royal couple are renovating the early 19th-century Grade II-listed white stucco building, but as the list of renovations gets longer and the weeks pass by, people are starting to wonder if the royal couple will be able to move in ahead of the arrival of their 'little bump'.

It was reported this week that the move in date had been delayed, with the couple now set to move in just days before Meghan's due date.

Given the amount of changes, it doesn't come as a surprise.

The refurb is set to convert five different apartments into one big home for the Duke and Duchess, that according to sources will be very high tech.

‘Harry loves his gadgets,' sources have explained. ‘It’s going to be very cool. They’ll be able to control everything from their smart phones’.

But what kind of features can we expect? Well, apparently a yoga studio with a special floor, grand fireplaces and 'an elaborate Gone With The Wind-style double staircase'.

Security measures are especially said to have been ramped up a notch, from camera monitoring systems to security windows, with privacy reportedly being one of the reasons why the couple are moving away from London.

‘Windsor is a very special place for Their Royal Highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate,’ a spokesperson announced for the couple last year. ‘The Duke and Duchess’s office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace.’

Happy housewarming to Harry and Meghan!
