So it makes total sense that once Meghan and Harry welcome their first child, Doria will be all over those grandma duties. And according to the Daily Mail, Doria “is said to want to be a hands on gran” and that “it is believed Doria will stay with the Sussexes on a regular basis when she comes to visit her new grandchild.”
“As far as those on the ground in Zambia were concerned both Meghan and Harry were going.

But Meghan and Harrys current place at Kensington Palace only has two bedrooms-which means that once the baby comes, thered be no place for Doria to stay if one of the rooms becomes a nursery. However, now that Meghan and Harry are moving to Frogmore Cottage, a royal residence with ten bedrooms, Doria wont only be getting her own room-apparently, “the couple want her to have a wing of their next home.”
Theres also been speculation that Doria is planning t0 move to England for good, so its possible that her grandchild duties are just part of the reason why she would have her own space at Frogmore Cottage. Plus, we know that Doria and Harry get along-this summer she had an “extended stay” at Oxfordshire with the royal couple.
As we reported earlier this year, Meghan and Harry were in fact expected to move into an apartment in Kensington which is currently being used by the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester. However, the Daily Mail source claimed the apartment needs to undergo considerable lengthy refurbishments and this is why the Sussexes could not move in.
So now that we know how Harry and Meghan are planning to fill two of the 10 bedrooms at their new home-any bets on what theyre going to do with the remaining eight?
Windsor, located about 30 miles west of London, is a special place for the couple, their spokesman said, as it served as the setting for their wedding in May. Frogmore House, located near the couples cottage, was where their evening wedding party was held and where their engagement photos were taken about a year ago.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are moving to the suburbs to prepare for the arrival of their first child.
Kensington Palace confirmed on Saturday that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be moving out of the central-London residence and into a new home at Windsors Frogmore Cottage early next year.
