Looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton are potentially about to add another home to their growing list of properties. The sun reports that King Charles has ‘reserved’ Frogmore House for the new Prince and Princess of Wales, but it remains to be seen whether they will move in.
The house (really, it’s a mansion in its own right) was built in 1684 on the Windsor Estate, and if that sounds familiar, strength be because it was the venue for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding reception. And speaking of the Sussexes, Frogmore House is totally different from their home Frogmore Cottage, which is nearby and too on the Windsor estate.

Recall that William and Kate literally just have moved from their country home Anmer Hall to Adelaide Cottage, and apparently they are not thrilled at the prospect of moving again now that Charles is king and a reshuffling of royal ownership is underway. But The sun reports that although there is no information on what “the Wales family would do” with Frogmore House, its “attraction may be too great to ignore”.
MeanwhileThe daily mail recently reported that there was a “radical drive to overhaul the vast royal estate”, and there was even talk of moving William and Kate to Windsor Castle proper. As the outlet said: “Charles’ far-reaching plans include turning Balmoral into a Queen’s Museum and moving the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge into Windsor Castle. »
“The Prince of Wales [now King Charles] strongly believes that these places must offer something to the public beyond simply being a place for members of the royal family to live, ”said a source. Public? Everyone agrees that it doesn’t make sense to run so many residences, but if you give them up entirely, you’ll never get them back when Prince George and the young Royals grow up and need a place to live. »
