LONDON — Like many a couple before them, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are moving to the suburbs ahead of the anticipated birth of their first child.

Kensington Palace said Saturday that Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will move from Kensington Palace in central London to Frogmore Cottage, a house on the grounds of Windsor Castle, early next year.

Officials said Saturday that Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will move from Kensington Palace in central London to Frogmore Cottage, a house on the grounds of Windsor Castle, early next year.

It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.

Prince Harry, Meghan moving to Windsor Castle home in new year

The couple, who married in a chapel on the Windsor Castle grounds in May, is expecting their first child in the spring. Windsor is about 20 miles (32 kilometres) west of central London.

Harry and Meghan have been living at Kensington Palace since announcing their engagement last year. They will keep their office at that London palace.

The palace statement said that "Windsor is a very special place for their royal highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate."

Windsor Castle is also one of Queen Elizabeth IIs favourite homes. It is surrounded by horse country where she used to ride frequently in her younger days, and she is known to prefer the castle and its environs to Buckingham Palace, her more formal official residence in central London.

Her sister-in-law Kate is seemingly less confident when it comes to public speaking, but shes well established within the royal fold. She met Prince William at university in 2001 and 10 years later the pair were married at Westminster Abbey.

Harry and Meghan have been living at Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace since announcing their engagement last year. They will keep their office at Kensington Palace, which is also home to Prince William and his wife Kate.

The move means that William and Harry will no longer be living in close proximity to each other now that Harry is starting his own family.

Not I, though. It’s important to remember that Meghan isn’t some aristocratic socialite or moneyed champagne bubble about town. She’s a 37-year-old woman who has lived a full and independent life up until this point. She’s already had a rewarding career, she’s honed her sense of social justice, she’s formed opinions about herself and her tastes, she’s loved and lost. In short, she’s a modern woman who up until very recently lived a pretty nice life all on her own. A life that isn’t that dissimilar, in broad strokes anyway, from the one that you or I have. She knows who she is and she isn’t afraid to be vocal about that.

Prince Charles has suggested Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will bend royal protocol by naming their forthcoming child something much more modern than is tradition. 

The shake-up of staff prompted a column in last weekend’s The Sunday Telegraph about “how to talk to staff”. (England! Gotta love it.) “A couple of months ago I was told a story about the Duchess of Sussex and her tights,” columnist Sophia Money-Coutts wrote. “A staff member at Kensington Palace apparently suggested they buy her tights from Marks & Spencer, but she allegedly insisted on getting them from the more up-market Wolford instead. The phrase ‘garbage patch’ was said to be used in reference to M&S, but that un-duchessy phrase is probably an exaggeration …”

During his remarks at Australia House in London, the future King of London touched on his son and daughter-in-laws recent trip to the land down under, where he said they were offered “countless, thoughtful” ideas for their son or daughters name. 

As Prince Charles put it, “Just between us… just between us, I suspect that Kylie and Shane may possibly make the short list. But ladies and gentlemen I would not hold your breath for Edna or Les.”

From the moment Prince Harry and girlfriend Meghan Markle confirmed their romance, the Markle effect has well and truly been in force.

For the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to pick a moniker without any significance to the British royal family would be quite extraordinary, especially given the historically rich meaning behind Prince William and Kate Middletons childrens names. 

The Duchess of Cambridge has played a key role in establishing The Royal Foundation alongside William and Harry, particularly with her work on early years intervention and mental health. And it seems her role as a mother-of-three to George, Charlotte and Louis has made her popular with the public.

Prince George was named in honor of Queen Elizabeth IIs father, while Princess Charlottes full name (Charlotte Elizabeth Diana) is a nod to Prince Charles, the Queen and the late Princess Diana. Likewise, Prince Louis name has plenty of ties to royal relatives who came before him. 

Prince Charles loose lips is far from the first time the newborns name has come up since Prince Harry and Meghan revealed their pregnancy in October. 

Although she is often pictured by the press, Meghans long, shoulder-length hair remains the same length, in contrast to the Duchess of Cambridges hair, which went from long, wavy tresses to whats now known as the KOB (Kate bob), before she grew it a little longer over the summer of this year.

In fact, the mom-to-be has also mentioned the “long list of names” she received from well-wishers on their trip to Australia. One in particular struck a chord with the beloved couple, according to 5-year-old Harriet, who met them in Melbourne.

Also, clients that are trying to grow their hair long often make the mistake of not cutting their hair for months assuming this is the way forward, whereas if they had  dusting on a regular basis the hair would grow quicker and healthier with no need to cut inches off each time.

“As soon as I introduced my daughter to Harry, he said, Thats a great name,” Harriets mom told reporters. “Maybe they will choose it for their own child, which would be fun.”
