In some ways it makes a lot of sense. On the other hand, every photo of it I've seen shows how incredibly close the public footpath is to the house itself. The only solution to that I can imagine would be to reroute the footpath, and I have no idea how easy that would be. That was one of the discussions about York Cottage, too, and Frogmore Cottage seems to have even less privacy, and more potential for security issues. I'm having a hard time imagining how it would all work.

I agree...and I think the only way it would work is if they shut down that foot path or build a moat and wall around it!

Will be interesting to see ...so many house stories out there.

A neat little bit about Frogmore Cottage. Queen Mary lived there.

I’m with Zaira on this. While the house, based on what is described, would be perfect for the Sussexes, there are other concerns. Mainly security. As Patricia Treble pointed out, it’s easily accessible. They would definitely have to change the foot path at the minimum. The move away from London is probably more so as a desire to raise their child as normal as possible, and thus preferably not in a palace. I don’t understand why they would keep a country home in Cotswolds beyond their current lease though. Especially considering they could easily pop into Soho Farmhouse.

Please note that posts speculating on the relationship between the Cambridge's and the Sussex's (specifically accusing the Cambridge's of being for lack of a better word...shady) have been deleted.

While its understood that the discussion regarding a future home for Harry and Meghan can be speculative in nature (until we get confirmation from official palace sources) that's all we are going to speculate on.

Any and all future posts will be deleted without notice.

According to Richard Palmer, KP has confirmed the report about Frogmore Cottage.

https://twitter.com/RoyalReporter/st...52272991170560

Of particular note:

In a statement, KP said: “Windsor is a very special place for Their Royal Highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate.”

And there we have it. I don't think there's much more "official" than being able to state that Kensington Palace has announced.

Both Harry and Meghan have to be quite excited about the prospective move into the home where they will raise their family. Another nice thing about it all, I think, is that with the Queen and Philip regarding Windsor Castle as "home base", they will be close enough to watch this great grandchild grow up and be able to visit them often.

Good news all the way around.

I'm sure once it is renovated this will be a splendid house. Queen Mary lived there for a while in the late 1930s. Very peaceful. I still think they'll need a central London pad for the forceable future though.

Palmer also reports that the Sussexes' future office will continue to be at KP.

Perhaps now they'll move into one of the smalled apartments at KP to use as a pied a terre in London for overnight stays. The lack of a garden space doesn't really matter too much if their main base is going to Frogmore Cottage.

Just a note - Philip basically lives at Sandringham these days not Windsor so he won't be seeing much of this great-grandchild. He sees a bit more of the Cambridges because they also live on the Sandringham Estate.

I love it! The Sussex family will grow up in the countryside in complete privacy!

All very satisfactory, except -

I have good friends who live in Windsor, and I find the Aircraft noise there UNBEARABLE, [and I say that as a Londoner, used to din].

Frogmore Cottage sounds like a perfect match for the couple. Low key, in Windsor and on the beautiful grounds of Frogmore House.
I just hope they get the privacy issues sorted out. It seems very easily accessible and very close to Frogmore House which is open to the public for a few days in the year.

Considering where Meghan grew up, I don't think planes flying overhead wil be much of a bother. Her and Harry's children will grow up in fabulous surroundings! This home gives them complete privacy. I am sure that the walking path passing by their home wil be changed and new security measures put in place.

This location also means that it will be impossible for estranged relatives to do arranged publicity photos in front of their official and private homes. I am sure that was taken into account.

The future Sussex children are being protected from those who seek to take advantage of them!

I know it was reported last year that Philip was retiring to Woods Farm at Sandringham, but there have been multiple sightings of him at Windsor this year - he’s been pictured several times carriage driving there, he attended the polo and the horse show, etc., so I think he does spend a good deal of time at Windsor as well.

CNN announced Harry and Meaghan's move to Frogmore Cottage this morning.

Is this a wedding gift from the queen, and is it Crown Estates property?

good choice, on Windsor estate but next door to Queen and co. Frogmore and Windsor were always said to be special to them.

It also saves on them needing a large KP/London residence. Windsor is about 40 mins form KP so for most engagements they can simply return home each night. Really I think Notts Cottage would suit them for what they will need, a place to change clothes between engagements or to stay in after a very late/before a very early engagement. W&H use Diana's old apartment for meeting people anyway so its not like they are going to need a large apartment to greet people in.

Whilst Frogmore is open to the public for a few days each year I still think they will get a lot of privacy. I mean apart from those days they will have the whole of Frogmore to stroll around in, on top of what I am sure will be a large private garden. The Windsor estate is quite private with many of the roads private used only by residents.

I wonder though whether they will still keep the Cotswold retreat (assuming that is true), we keep hearing it said they have their won money so maybe they will continue to rent it. Whilst Frogmore is in green space its still not really a countryside retreat, who knows. Nice we have some confirmation though, after nearly 100 pages of speculation!

I assume it would be a Crown property and that Harry will be given a long term lease on it.

I tried to identify Frogmore Cottage on Google Maps (satellite); can someone help out? Is it one of the slightly larger structure north west of Frogmore House at the end of Frogmore Drive (there are 2 somewhat larger houses) or is it the one right next to Frogmore House? Or even another structure?
