Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently announced that they are moving out of Kensington Palace and into their very own home at Queen Elizabeth II's Windsor Estate. And while the couple will be moving away from one grandmother, they might just be getting closer to another!
According to Us Weekly, Doria Ragland, Meghan's mother, can't wait for the birth of her grandchild and the Duchess of Sussex is just as eager to spend time with her mother. But although she plans to visit often, the grandma-to-be isn't planning on leaving the U.S. just yet.
“Meghan of course wants her mom to move to the U.K.,” a source told Us Weekly. Ragland, a social worker who lives in Los Angeles, wants to spend “a lot of time with Meghan and the baby”—but has no plans to move to England anytime soon. “Doria hasn’t made any commitments about doing so,” the insider added. “She has told friends that she would keep her house in Los Angeles but is indeed planning on spending a majority of her time with Meghan.”
On Saturday, November 24, Kensington Palace released a statement saying that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be moving from their home at Nottingham Cottage in London to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, which is only a 40 minute drive away.
"Windsor is a very special place for their royal highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate," the palace said in a statement. "The Duke and Duchess' official office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace."
The home upgrade makes sense for the expecting couple: Their former home in London only had two bedrooms, whereas their new home, which is currently being renovated, is said to include 10 bedrooms, a gym, a yoga studio, and nursery for their baby.
