Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are excited about the change in scenery as they prepare for the birth of their first child.
The couple recently announced plans to move out of Kensington Palace to a more spacious estate near Windsor Castle. The move makes sense with a little one on the way, but inside sources say the two felt imprisoned living inside the palace.
“Harry feels very imprisoned at Kensington Palace,” Ingrid Seward, author of a royal biography on Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, explained.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex accompanied The Queen at a Service to mark the Centenary of the Armistice at Westminster Abbey. The service marks the finale of a day of national events to commemorate the end of the First World War, 100 years ago today. More on @theroyalfamily.
According to People, Harry and Markle are moving to Frogmore Cottage, located around 25 miles from London. The new home gives Harry and Markle more room to spread out, but it also puts distance between them and Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Sources claim that the two couples are planning on having separate offices setup inside Kensington Palace in the near future. Insiders say the move is clear evidence that trouble is brewing between the couples — and specifically between Markle and Middleton.
Other sources, however, believe the changes are natural, as Harry and William each have their own families to look after.
Being second in line to the throne, William has to reside in London. In contrast, Harry has more flexibility in where he lives, which is probably why he opted for the country life. After all, living away from the city is less stressful and fits Harry’s laid-back attitude.

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019. Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public. ?PA
Harry and Markle’s new estate — which is under renovations — rests near the larger estate of Frogmore House. As fans will recall, Frogmore House is where the couple had their wedding reception last spring.
Living near Windsor Castle also allows Harry and Markle additional space for their growing family. With one baby already on the way, moving into a larger home certainly seems like a smart move.
That said, rumors of a growing feud persist. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not commented on the rumors, and they are expected to move out of Kensington Palace sometime in 2019.
