Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reveal Frogmore cottage renovation

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex finally complete renovations on Frogmore Cottage.

After announcing their intentions to make Frogmore Cottage their home just prior to their 2018 wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally finished transforming their forever home. 

Since the cottage was built in the mid-1800s, it required a bit of work before the newlyweds moved in. 

Unsurprisingly, rumours spread like wildfire about what would be included in the renovation - from a gender-neutral nursery for little Archie, to a yoga studio. But, it turns out punters got it all wrong.

A Buckingham Palace source told People that the couple had to replace beams in the ceiling that were rotting through, a new gas and heating system were added, and a nursery was added. So, it seems that the yoga studio didn't make the cut. 

“It’s substantially completed,” the source told People about the five-bed home.

As for the price tag, the palace has disclosed that the renovation cost taxpayers around $3 million, but anything above and beyond came out of the Duke and Duchess' pocket. 

“All fixtures and fittings were paid for by their Royal Highnesses,” the source added. “Curtains, furnishings — all that would be paid separately, paid privately.”
