How Meghan Markle and Kate will become EVER MORE distant over time
MEGHAN Markle and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, will become more distant over time, it is believed, with the pair splitting away for lives with their princes.
Prince Harry and Meghan will be moving out of their Kensington Palace home into the grounds of Windsor Castle in early 2019, it was announced today. The couple were meant to be moving into a 21-room apartment in Kensington Palace, next door to Prince William and Kate, with the home undergoing a £1.4million renovation in preparation for their arrival. But Harry and Meghan have decided to leave London life to move to Windsor in preparation for the birth of their first child, expected in spring.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also believed to want to move further away from William and Kate, who live in a 20-room apartment inside Kensington Palace.
Prince Harry and Prince William feel it is time to go their own ways, following reports of tension between the brothers.
A royal source said: “The initial plan was for Harry and Meghan to move out of their cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace and into one of the main apartments.
“But there has been a bit of tension between the brothers.
“Now Harry and Meghan don’t want to live next to William and Kate and want to strike out on their own.”
The planned move puts clear distance between the two royal households.
Both Meghan Markle and the Duchess of Cambridge are likely to become a lot more distant following the move.
A royal insider said: “Harry and Meghan want to move and need more space, but they don’t want to live next door to William and Catherine.
“There is no reason why their London home has to be at Kensington Palace.
“There are plenty of other options, including using their own money to buy their own place.”
The source added: “Catherine and Meghan live very different lives, and that is likely to become more marked over time.”
Kensington Palace said in a statement on Saturday: “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 Duke and Duchess’s office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace.”
Frogmore Cottage has a grand total of ten bedrooms and a nursery.
The royal couple’s new home is likely to hold fond memories since they held their evening wedding party at nearby Frogmore House, following their marriage in May.
The cottage is currently split up into five parts which were previously home to members of royal staff.
However, the Grade II-listed Frogmore Cottage will now be refurbished into a family home with modern facilities.
