The queen has already visited Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at their new home in Frogmore Cottage, ABC News reports. The sovereign paid a trip to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new home in Windsor on Easter, making her one of the first to see the future parents at the residence as they await the arrival of their first child, who’s due any day now.
Royal correspondent Emily Andrews of The Sun also reported the news, citing a source who said the queen “wanted to formally welcome the Sussexes to their new home so she was their first visitor.”
The monarch gave the couple Frogmore Cottage as a gift, Andrews added. The home isn’t far from Windsor Castle, the royal residence where the sovereign often retreats for a month around Easter and for a week in June, according to the royal family’s official website.
Prince William and Kate Middleton also paid the Sussexes a visit on the Easter Sunday following church service because Meghan was unable to attend, sources previously told BAZAAR.com. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge “wanted to be supportive and see how she is doing,” the insider said. “It was a lovely afternoon.”
Meghan and Harry moved to Frogmore from Kensington Palace in London, where they’d been living since before they got engaged. They made the transition earlier this month ahead of welcoming their firstborn, who is reportedly due at the end of April or early May.
The Duchess of Sussex’s mother, Doria Ragland, is also with the couple as they await the baby’s arrival, according to ABC.
