  • Earlier this year, it was revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were giving Frogmore Cottage a bit of a makeover. The couple moved into their new home in April, just in time for the arrival of their first child, Archie, following months of renovations.

    Their garden is ‘very LA’ apparently, and they have created an organic garden on the grounds filled with fruits, vegetable and herbs, so the family can pick their own food fresh from the garden. They have also reportedly installed a yoga studio with a special floor, grand fireplaces and ‘an elaborate Gone With The Wind-style double staircase.’


    While they have already given the cottage a refurb this year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly looking to make some more changes to their house, which was built in 1801.

    A source told The Mirror: ‘The duchess is very involved in the project and wanted the final design to be perfect for them and Archie.’

    They have applied for planning permission to renovate the Grade II listed building which will include improvements to the exterior such as alterations to doors, windows and walls. According to the plans, which were revealed in documents published by Windsor and Maidenhead council, they’re also seeking permission to install lighting in the garden and carry out landscaping on the grounds.

    Harry also ‘loves his gadgets’, so the house is expected to be very high tech with everything controlled by smartphones. It all sounds very cool.

    Can we get an invite to dinner, maybe?
