Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry have moved into their new family home Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, according to multiple reports.

After months of extensive renovations, the parents-to-be are no doubt excited to finally move into their new home, just in time to welcome their first child this month.

It was first announced in November last year in an official statement by Kensington Palace that the royal couple would be moving out of their cottage in Kensington to the Windsor Estate.

“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 statement began.

“Windsor is a very special place for Their Royal Highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate.”

Since then the 10-bedroom house, which was originally separated into five apartments, has undergone an impressive upgrade said to have cost upwards of £3 million (NZD $5.78 million).

New features are said to include a yoga studio, triple-glazed windows (to block out the noise from nearby Heathrow airport) and a £50,000 (NZD $94,200) low-carbon energy unit.

The royal couple also enlisted the help of esteemed interior designer Vicky Charles, of Soho House fame, who Meghan is known to be a huge fan of, to help style their new home.

It’s likely Meghan would have asked her advice when styling the nursery for Baby Sussex, which is said to be gender-neutral, environmentally friendly and complete with non-toxic, vegan paint.

Meghan and Harry’s engagement photos were taken in the grounds of Frogmore Cottage.

Furthermore, the Queen is reportedly giving the expectant parents a very generous housewarming gift – art from the Royal Art Collection.

The collection is the largest privately owned collection of art in the world, with more than one million pieces.

A palace insider told Vanity Fair, “Meghan and Harry have been told can choose some art work for Frogmore Cottage.

“They have been presented with a list of painting that would be available to them and they are making up their minds as to what they would like to hang in their new home.”

Some of the incredible artists in the collection include Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Andy Warhol and Anish Kapoo.

The housewarming gift stays true to royal tradition as the Queen also gave Prince William and Duchess Catherine a piece from her collection when they married in 2011.

Excitement is reaching fever pitch with the arrival of Harry and Meghan’s baby due any day now.

There is currently speculation about where Meghan will give birth, with many originally expecting her to take the same route as her sister-in-law Kate by giving birth at the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital, however there’s been rumours Meghan may choose a more local hospital.

And now, with her and Harry moved out to Windsor, the chances that she’ll choose a hospital closer to their new home seem more likely than ever.
