Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan and baby Archie have had a couple of weeks to settle into their new life as a family of three, and we think we can all agree that the best thing they could’ve done was move from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage. Despite undergoing renovations to the five-bedroom home during the latter part of Meghan’s pregnancy, it was clearly worth it, as they’ve escaped the spotlight — and, arguably, the toxicity — of London in favour of a more secluded existence.
“Their home is so cute and warm,” a source told People. “The energy of the space is so much better [than Kensington Palace]. It’s a total fresh start.”
And one they no doubt needed, especially as Meghan and Harry embark on life as parents; protecting their little one, and themselves, from all the world might throw at them. As much as they can, at least.
According to a longtime friend, moving out and away from the city to Windsor was “a really healthy thing to do,” adding that the couple “now have their own thing,” meaning they can lead separate lives, away from Prince William and Duchess Kate, and no longer have to to share/divide the staff and can simply be on their own, calling the shots for themselves as they see fit.
Frogmore also happens to be the perfect place to entertain visitors, with a custom kitchen and dining area where Harry intends to “do some entertaining.” A friend of his added, “He likes having his friends around him.”
What’s even better? They have easy access to the Queen, at least when she’s hanging out at Windsor Castle. It’s only a five-minute walk if they fancy a tea with her so that’s always convenient. Perhaps Meghan, Archie and Her Maj could find some time to bond, if schedules allow. Oh, to see the little boy and his great-grandmother. How adorable would that be?
