The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have a baby on the way, are to leave Kensington Palace, which they now share with Harry's elder brother's family, early next year.

Harry and Meghan have been living at Kensington Palace since announcing their engagement a year ago.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are moving out of Kensington Palace and into a "very special place" - the Windsor Estate. "The Duke and Duchess's office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace".

It sits on the grounds of the far grander Frogmore House, built in 1680-84 and a royal residence since 1792 - and where Harry and Meghan had their evening wedding reception. The Duke and Duchess held their wedding party at nearby Frogmore House, following their marriage in St George's Chapel, Windsor. Frogmore Cottage boasts 10 bedrooms, it will also include a nursery and a gym/yoga studio.

"The couple chose Windsor because 'it means a huge amount to them - it is where they got married".

Royal insiders had expected Harry and Meghan to move into Apartment 1 at Kensington Palace, now occupied by the Queen's cousin, the Duke of Gloucester, 74, and his Danish-born wife, Birgitte, 72.

However it's not ready for them to move in straight away, as it's now divided into five separate units for palace staff to reside. Their official residence is still at Kensington Palace.

The Royal Family's Windsor grounds are steeped in history.

It was initially claimed the move next door to the Queen was down to "tension" between brothers Harry and William. She spent long periods there after the death of her husband and her favourite "Munshi" (teacher) Abdul Karim, once lived at Frogmore Cottage.

"They need more room and hope Frogmore Cottage will be ready in time for when they have the baby", the source said. Confirmation of their plans came from Kensington Palace just hours after Emily Andrews at The Sun revealed that Meghan and Harry had been given the historic property by the Queen and would be setting up home there within months.
