Prince Harry and Meghan Meghan are spending more than $3.8 million for renovating their new home, Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor, just months before the arrival of their first child’s arrival in the spring.
The property is located near Windsor Castle and has five apartments, reports the Times reported. “There are 10 bedrooms, and the cottage does need some updating and renovations,” the insider said. “It’s much bigger than Nottingham Cottage, which only had two bedrooms and was very tight.”
According to the reports, the renovation includes a green energy unit costing more than $60,000 to provide heating and hot water for the house. They will also add fireplaces, staircases and a floating floor but will keep the original floorboards and shutters. The whopping renovation amount will include security features that will make the home very safe and secure, “like Fort Knox.”
The Palace announced officially back in November that Meghan and Harry are moving from their current residence at Nottingham Cottage in London to Windsor. It was said that the cottage was a wedding gift to Meghan and Harry from Queen Elizabeth II.
Meghan and Harry’s renovations are costing way more than the $1.9 million Kate and William spent renovating their Norfolk home. “Frogmore Cottage is in an extremely run-down condition and is needing a lot of TLC and heavy restoration to bring it up to standard ahead of the duke and duchess’s moving-in date,” the source told the newspaper
The conservation work is being funded by British taxpayers in the form of the sovereign grant.
