Yeah and they knew what they were getting..they stayed at Windsor/visited Windsor while dating...it must of been something they figured they would deal with when they accepted FC to live in.

I think you are right. Harry has spent Christmas there often enough and that is where he and Meghan spent a lot of time together "Courting" if I am not mistaken.

Here are recent long lens exterior views of newly renovated Frogmore Cottage:

In the below photo, apparently iron fencing has been set up yards beyond the smaller wooden fence that is positioned closer to Frogmore Cottage:

Frogmore House and part of the Windsor grounds will be open to individual tourists on May 28 - May 30, 2019; and groups only will be welcome from August 1 to August 31, 2019. As we know, the royals are typically on vacation or visiting Scotland during the month of August:

If another one or more harass them I wonder if the gamekeeper will be able to practice, Harry too for that matter.

If that be the case, then they'd need to post a sign saying "Forget the Dogs! Beware of the People!"

But seriously, I don't see either a gamekeeper or Harry resorting to such methods no matter how much they'd want to. I'm sure that any guided tours that go near Frogmore House will be kept a good distance from Frogmore Cottage.

One thing I do like from seeing that long lens picture is that it does look like the area surrounding the cottage has pretty much kept its flora and fauna and that, in and of itself, serves to garner more privacy from peering eyes.

Yes, in fact if they plant a couple of tall shrubs even that small corner of the cottage will be hidden. You don’t see much from those pix as it is, although that stack of chimneys is certainly impressive and as tall as it is may remain visible no matter how filled in the surrounding gardens become. Is there an official architectural style that would describe Frogmore Cottage?

You can very clearly see the very top of their home from The Long Walk. There is a lot of media out and about right now and a few of them have posted shots of Frogmore Cottage.

Thank you! I see from the linked Wiki page that Prince Andrew’s Royal Lodge is also considered Cottage orne’.

Umm, I wasn't advocating shooting the tourists . . . that is going a tiny tad far. I was referring the MaiaMia attached news about drones trying to get photos. Now them, I think they should be allowed to practice on.

Can you identify which media outlets, or provide links to the photos? Thanks in advance.

According to the Daily Mail, the Sussexes will be given a suite of rooms at Buckingham Palace, to serve as a London base. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ndon-base.html

I wonder about this, why move out of Nottingham Cottage to move into rooms at BP? I wonder if, like Anne, they are simply getting some rooms to use as offices/audience rooms and will have rooms for personal use elsewhere. I can see the sense in them having rooms for work in BP as thats where their staff are based.

The article does claim @tommy100 that the Sussexes will have office space and residential accommodation at BP, similar to other royals such as the Wessexes who do not strictly live in London. This living space is provided out of convenience and necessity for when they happen to be in London taking care of official duties. I suppose the specific living accommodations and office space will be worked out after the BP renovations have been completed.

And responding to my own query in post #711 above, regarding recent photos of Frogmore Cottage, see a couple of photos below, although I had been hoping to see a view of exactly where Frogmore Cottage is visible from the Long Walk. That view would probably mostly be of the tall chimneys and little else. These are much closer views:

Distant view with two sets of fencing visible:

Close-up view at the same angle, with one set of fencing visible. I love the shape of that tree on the left:

The exact rooms aren't known but it's SOP. From the article:

"A source stressed that it is standard procedure for Royals living outside the capital but with Central London offices to be given somewhere they can stay. Princes Andrew and Edward are among those with accommodation in the Palace."

A suite probably has no kitchen. It's a place to stay overnight not an alternative to Frogmore, perhaps for an early engagement or a dinner. Nott Cott will probably be assigned to a member of staff or extended family who needs a permanent London base.

History of Frogmore Cottage:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frogmore_Cottage

It's interesting that Frogmore House was purchased in 1792 by King George III for Queen Sophia Charlotte (she was always referred to after her marriage, as Queen Charlotte). In 1801, Queen Charlotte directed the building of nearby Frogmore Cottage as a retreat for herself and her daughters, and as a space for her gardening passion.

It's cool that Meghan is now occupying a space built by a former popular Queen of England who visibly evinced a mixed 'melanin-impacted' heritage. Frogmore Cottage has a fascinating history. It must be amazing to have been involved in it's renovation to an updated family home for this century. It's said that taxpayers' money* partly funded the renovation, but that M&H paid for all the furnishings and the services of the interior designer. I also read that M&H (like other royals) were allowed to select art from the Royal Collection to display in their home. I wonder which pieces they ended up choosing.

* Frogmore House, as well as the Frogmore Cottage property are owned by the Crown Estate, so FC is not just a home owned exclusively by M&H. They are simply the current occupants.


The below article contains yet again confusion over Frogmore House and Frogmore Cottage. Plus, it's completely inaccurate for the writer to suggest that Meghan and Harry are 'opening Frogmore House' when the Sussexes are not involved in something that happens annually for tourists! In addition, it was Prince Charles who 'hosted' the wedding reception at Frogmore House for Meghan & Harry and their guests:

And we know how reliable the DM's facts are

Yes, they are right all senior royals have offices in London, even those who don't live there. They are right there. No argument that Harry and Meghan will also need one, now that they aren't working out of the Cambridge office.

But the presumption that those offices are in Buckingham seem a stretch.On the CC, Edward and Sophie's events are now listed under SJP not Buckingham palace. Andrew will likely move over soon as well with the renovations. Anne and Alexandra already were at SJP.

It stands to be seen but Buckingham seems very unlikely. The prediction seems based soley on their new offices are under the umbrella of the queen.

The Daily Mail issued a retraction/correction/clarification/whatever on the story about the Sussexes making employees park elsewhere. They now know the Sussexes has nothing to do with the decision. I saw it as screen cap on a tweet. Someone post the link if they see it.

They're throwing the Sun under the bus, hilariously.
