Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to move from Kensington Palace to Windsor Estate cottage ahead of new child’s birth

The palace statement said that “Windsor is a very special place for their royal highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate.”

Windsor Castle is one of Queen Elizabeth II’s favorite homes. It is surrounded by horse country where she used to ride frequently in her younger days, and she is known to prefer the castle and its environs to Buckingham Palace, her more formal official residence in central London.
