Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently moved out of Kensington Palace and into their new Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage, before welcoming their first child, Baby Archie.

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 high tech, high security haven.

While their now Windsor home was undergoing a renovation however, the royal couple are said to have rented an Oxfordshire property.

This home however has made news recently, as Prince Harry took on the paparazzi over their invasion of privacy, with a helicopter taking aerial photos over the Oxfordshire home.

Prince Harry’s attorney Gerrard Tyrrell reportedly read in a statement at the High Court on Prince Harry’s behalf that the royals chose the property for ‘the high level of privacy it afforded’, going on to explain that the couple now are unable to live there.

The Duke of Sussex has reportedly received ‘substantial’ damages and an apology from Splash News and Pictures Agency, something he is said to have accepted.

The couple’s new Frogmore Cottage home is said to have ramped up its security, especially now that Baby Sussex has arrived.

We hope the Duke, Duchess and Archie are enjoying some private time together.
