Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting ready to start their new life together! The two aren't just preparing for their first child together, but the parents-to-be are also getting ready to move into a new home!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are expecting their little one in Spring 2019, are planning on moving into Frogmore Cottage on his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II's Windsor Estate in early 2019 "as they prepare for the arrival of their first child," Kensington Palace confirmed on Saturday.

"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."

At the moment, Harry and Meghan are living in a two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage on Kensington Palace's grounds, where they have lived since their engagement. The couple's future home at Frogmore Cottage, located 20 miles away, is currently being renovated. The new home will include 10 bedrooms, a gym, a yoga studio and a separate nursery.

Their office said in a statement to People, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate early next year as they prepare for the arrival of their first child. The couple have lived at Nottingham Cottage since their engagement last year.”

“Windsor is a very special place for Their Royal Highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate,” the statement reads. “The Duke and Duchess’s official office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace.”

According to recent reports, the "tension" between Harry and his brother Prince William have caused the two to search for a new home. Last month, the Sunday Times' reported that the two were making plans to split their shared Kensington Palace household, due to the fact that their staffs have "to reflect their increasingly different responsibilities." Now it seems the couple's are following through with their plan.

Hopefully the Sussex's will give us a little glimpse into their new abode once it's finished. Until then, we'll be here speculating on baby names.
