Here’s everything you need to know…

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child together last month, naming their son, Archie harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Since Archie’s birth, the couple have been spending their time privately in their newly renovated Frogmore Cottage home, bonding as a family.

But with the hype around their new arrival and their names making headlines every day, it’s hardly surprising that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have ramped up their security measures.

Disclaimer - it’s very intense.


The royal couple are reportedly guarded by 20 police offers, recruited from the Thames Valley Force as well as the Met Police, with the Daily Mail reporting that Harry and Meghan are spending £750,000 on security at their new home.

A source went on to explain that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also going to take a leaf out of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s book, planting high trees to protect their house from view by Frogmore Estate visitors.

'Security for the couple is of the utmost importance,’ the source told the publication, going on to explain that the ‘large-scale plating program worth up to £20,000 is proposed to shield the property from the public eye.’

We hope that the Duchess of Sussex has a nice and private rest of her maternity leave and we’re looking forward to seeing Meghan and baby Sussex at the end of summer.
