One month after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle debuted their son, Archie Harrison,to the world, the royal couple is once again ready to focus on creating the home of their dreams. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have resumed the renovation work at Frogmore Cottage that they began prior to Archie’s arrival, this time adding new projects to the list.
In order for the pair to be able to move into the once “dilapidated” home in time to welcome their first child together, they had a crew working quickly to make the space livable. Over six months, the home was converted from a staff residence with multiple apartments into a single-family home with approximately five bedrooms. A new white exterior, windows, and a darker roof were all visible when the pair moved into the countryside abode near Windsor Castle in April. A yoga room, an organic vegetable garden, and energy-efficient details were also reportedly added.
Now that they’re settled in, it seems that Harry and Meghan are looking to update the property further. According to construction plans published by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, the couple is working on fixing up the exterior of the house and the garden, and adding a custom kitchen and dining room. People reports that those facade fix-ups include “redecorating [the home’s] gutters and downpipes,” as well as adding new doors and windows. Renovations are also supposed to take place on other buildings located on the property.
