I think it's been mentioned that the first floor wouldn't be available as a living space or something? However, based on the fact that engagement photos are taken there, I could see her staying at Frogmore the night before the wedding and leave from there.

I was wondering about this. I remember reading years ago that Frogmore was "earmarked" for Harry but didn't take it seriously. There were rumors earlier this year that Harry was looking at property in this area

I think it would be beyond cool for them to take up residence in Frogmore at some point. I don't think it likely though, it's open to tourists and 'rental' of the grounds I think.

Its possible that they could close off Frogmore to the public if Harry and Meghan were to take up residence there. That's what happened with Anmer Hall before the Cambridges moved in. If I remember right, there was an oak furniture business renting out space at Anmer. From what I've read in this link, Frogmore isn't open that much to the general public and is still very much in use by the British royal family.

I apologize if this has already been posted.

I hope someone here knows if this is a house on the Frogmore Estate. It very recently was approved for renovation.

What I've read says no one currently lives there and the royal family use it for entertaining. I'm not sure it could be ruled out entirely as a future Harry and Meghan country home.

I got excited then but no sadly. This isn't a house on the Frogmore Estate, it's another property called Frogmore House that is located in Watford, about 23 miles from Windsor.

I never thought about Frogmore House only the basis that I thought it was actually already occupied or otherwise used for entertaining. So indeed now i think it would be a great candidate for Harry and Meghan's future home!

The Frogmore Estate or Gardens comprise 33 acres of private gardens within the grounds of the Home Park, adjoining Windsor Castle, in the English county of Berkshire.

Plenty of room for privacy too!

and used for Peter Phillips wedding.

The more I think about it, its very possible that over the dating period, Harry and Meghan may have actually stayed at Frogmore. It would make sense out of their statement that they have good memories of Windsor.

I just don't know how habitable Frogmore is currently.

The few pics I've seen of the inside, it looks very 'habitable'.

It was renovated/restored in the 80's, work finished in 1990. It has been redecorated since. In 1997, when the Britannia was decommissioned, Philip decorated some of the rooms of Frogmore using items from the yacht. The resoration is said to have cost 2.5 million pounds and restored many of the original details, including art work from the time of Queen Charlotte.

Yes it is open to tourists, which is common in these type of houses, to pay for the upkeep. It would be possible to shut down tourist visits inside. The rental income Harry would be paying on the house would pay for the upkeep of the home.

The grounds easily could still be rented out. Bagshot is similar. Edward and Sophie lease the house but not the surrounding farmland and woods.
