MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry need distance from Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, when their royal baby comes along, a royal expert has claimed.
Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk it was not a good idea for the couple’s to be “perpetual neighbours” because the royal brothers are now “married and in their thirties”. He said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will “need privacy” ahead of the birth of their royal baby next Spring. Meghan Markle and Harry sparked speculation of a fall out with the Cambridges when they revealed plans to move away from Kensington Palace.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have lived in their cosy Nottingham Cottage next door to Prince William and Kate since they announced their engagement in November 2017.
But they are moving out of London to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor ahead of the birth of their first child in spring 2019.
The move means they will be 20 miles away from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, and their three children: George, Charlotte and Lou
But Mr Fitzwilliams said “any family had its ups and downs and the Windsor’s are no different as well we know”.

He told how the future could see the couples part ways with a divide at their ‘court’ in Kensington Palace to create two “separate offices”.
The royal expert said: “This will surely be designed to maximise the strengths of both couples who have such vast appeal both nationally and internationally.”
Speaking about Prince Harry and Meghan’s move from heir two-bedroom home in the grounds of Kensington Palace to the 10-bedroom cottage, near Windsor Castle, he said: “After their baby is born next spring this surely seems ideal as it will give them the privacy which they will need despite being some distance from London”.
But Mr Fitzwilliams insisted “William and Harry have always been close and remain close”.
When quizzed over Kate and Meghan’s alleged feud, which is said to be having a negative impact on they royal brother’s relationship, Mr Fitzwilliams’ said the duchess’ had “little in common”.
He added: “All the signs are that Kate and Meghan, with their very different destinies, do get on but may have little in common.
“Kate is going to be Queen Consort one day and Meghan is humanitarian campaigner whose husband is sixth in line to the throne, which gives her far more independence which someone of her talents and extrovert personality needs.
“Both have so much to give as is abundantly clear in their public appearances and work for charity and that is what should and I am sure will be maximised in the months and years to come.”
