Here's everything to know...

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have officially left Kensington Palace, moving into their new Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage.

The past few months have been dedicated to a huge renovation on the property, converting their early 19th-century Grade II-listed white stucco building into a modern haven.

The refurb reportedly converted five different apartments into one big home for the Duke and Duchess, that according to sources is 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’.


But it wasn’t the ‘floating floor’ or staircases that got everyone talking about Frogmore Cottage this week. Instead, it was the garden, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s exterior revamp reportedly being very LA.

The health-conscious royal couple have apparently created an organic garden on the Frogmore Cottage grounds, filled with fruits, vegetable and herbs, so the family can pick their own food fresh from the garden.

This is undoubtedly an idea from the new Duchess of Sussex, who has spoken in the past in an interview with Marie Claire, that she loves to harvest her own food.

‘I love to cook,’ the former Suits actress explained. ‘I grew up with that farm-to-table dining before it was sweeping the nation. I do think there’s some value to really throwing yourself into food and embracing where it comes from.’

Is anyone else inspired to make a vegetable garden now?

Happy housewarming to Harry and Meghan!
