The Queen paid a visit to Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry's new home ahead of the baby’s arrival

Apparently she wanted to “see Meghan before she has the baby.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into their new home Frogmore Cottage on the grounds of Windsor in early April and they've already had a string of prominent visitors – most notably, The Queen.
According to The Sun, Queen Elizabeth paid a visit to her grandson and granddaughter-in-law's new home, which she gifted them as a wedding present, on Easter Sunday, which also happened to be her 93rd birthday.

"Her Majesty wanted to formally welcome the Sussexes to their new home so she was their first visitor," a royal source told The Sun.
"After all, they've practically moved into her back garden.
"She visited with other family members and Harry and Meghan were delighted to show them around.
"The Queen was at Windsor Castle at Easter and wanted to see Meghan before she has the baby," the source adds.
Prince William and Kate, Zara and Mike Tindall and Peter and Autumn Phillips all visited Meghan and Harry as well, following the Easter Sunday service at St George's Chapel, which Meghan didn't attend, as she awaits the imminent arrival of her first child with Harry.

According to BAZAAR, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Meghan because she was unable to attend the service.
"They wanted to be supportive and see how she was doing," a source close to the family revealed.
"It was a lovely afternoon."
It was the first time the couple had visited Frogmore Cottage since its extensive renovation and a friend close to Harry and Meghan says the Sussexes have "really settled in now."
"It's truly a lovely home and they have done such a great job with the space.
"So much light and positive energy.
"I couldn't think of a better place to start a family," the source adds.

It was announced last year in November that Harry and Meghan would be moving out of their cottage at Kensington Palace to the Windsor Estate, which for months underwent an impressive upgrade that was 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 along with a gender-neutral, environmentally friendly nursery for their newborn, complete with vegan paint.
Meghan's due date was said to be between late April and early May, and with us creeping into May now, Baby Sussex's arrival will be very, very soon!
