The couple were married at Windsor Castle in May and held their reception for around 200 guests at Frogmore House, a 17th century royal residence on the same estate.

Harry and Meghan announced last month that they were expecting their first child, which is due in spring 2019.

Kensington Palace said Windsor was a “very special place” for the couple.

The couple have been living at Kensington Palace in London, near Harry’s brother, the Duke of Cambridge, and his family.

Harry and Meghan have been living at Nottingham Cottage on the estate since their engagement in 2017, but the move means they will be 20 miles away from William, Kate and their three children – George, Charlotte and Louis.

The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester will also move to a new home at Kensington Palace in the new year, the palace confirmed.

Richard, the Queen’s cousin, and his wife Birgitte will move from the 21-room Apartment 1 to the Old Stables on the estate, Kensington Palace said.

The move from the apartment next door to the Cambridge’s is to smaller accommodation now the couple’s three children no longer live with them, a spokeswoman added.
