Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's new home faces the attractive grounds of Frogmore House - the large white stately home where the couple had their private evening wedding reception in May 2018. The royal couple now live in Nottingham Cottage in the ground of Kensington Palace and are upping sticks to accommodate their expanding family.

Frogmore Cottage is a private residence owned by the Royal Family. Similar levels of secrecy surrounded plans for Anmer Hall on the Sandringham Estate, which was given to Prince William and Kate by the Queen following their wedding in 2011.

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle reportedly don't get along well which causes Prince Harry and his wife to move out from Kensington Palace.

The Sun first reported the news - unconfirmed at the time - around about a week ago and attributed the move to "tension between the brothers" according to their royal source.

The property has a special meaning to the soon to be parents as it is where they held their private wedding party and had their handsome engagement photos taken. "But Meghan is exhausted and, understandably, expressed serious concerns about travelling to a country with even the smallest Zika threat", the says the insider; the Zika virus, which is spread via mosquitos, has been associated with birth defects.

Kensington Palace said in a statement: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will more to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate early next year as they prepare for the arrival of their first child".

The decision to move also comes after reports that Princes Harry and William would have separate courts instead of using Kensington Palace as a joint office.

The cottage and house were called Frogmore because of the many frogs that resided in the marshy area near the River Thames. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move to a new home in Windsor in early 2019.

The couple have been living at Kensington Palace in London, near Harry's brother, the Duke of Cambridge, and his family since their engagement in 2017.

So, in short, there's no feud per se, but Harry and Meghan's upcoming move to Frogmore Cottage away from Will and Kate is coming at an opportune time.
