LONDON – Like many couples before them, Prince Harry and Meghan's wife head for the suburbs before the early birth of their first child.
Officials said on Saturday that Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, would move from Kensington Palace in central London to Frogmore Cottage, a home on the background of Windsor Castle early next year.
The couple, who married in a chapel on Windsor Castle in May, awaits their first child in the spring. Windsor is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) west of central London.
The palace statement said that "Windsor is a very special place for their royal heights and are grateful that their official residence will be on their property."
Windsor Castle is also one of Queen Elizabeth II's favorite homes. It is surrounded by the country of horses, where she used to travel frequently in her younger days and is known to prefer the castle and its surroundings to Buckingham Palace, the official official residence in central London.
Harry and Meghan live at Nottingham Cottage, inside Kensington Palace, since announcing their commitment last year. They will keep their office at Kensington Palace, which also houses Prince William and Kate's wife.
The move means William and Harry will not live in the immediate vicinity when Harry begins his own family.
