Growing up, Prince William and Prince Harry, who are just two years apart in age, were thick as thieves and it would be reasonable to assume that the Sussexes would prefer to be surrounded by family when they welcome their first baby next spring.

Kensington Palace, representing the royal couple, has announced that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan would move to Frogmore Cottage on the estate of Windsor Castle.

Harry and Meghan have been living at Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace since announcing their engagement a year ago.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are moving out of Kensington Palace and into a "very special place" - the Windsor Estate.

The house holds lots of sentiment for the pair, with Harry and Meghan hosting their evening wedding party there and it being the spot where they had their engagement photos taken.

They also rent a country home in the Cotswolds. The new apartment Meghan and Harry originally planned on living in at Kensington, was reportedly going to include an adjoining door that would connect it to William and Kate's abode but that may have been too close for comfort for the brothers.

The Royal Family's Windsor grounds are steeped in history.

According to reports, the cottage will undergo some renovations, as it's now divided into five units as home to palace staff.

The grounds include the Mausoleum of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and the Royal Burial Ground where Harry's great great uncle, the abdicated King Edward VIII, is buried with his wife Wallis Simpson - later Duchess of Windsor.

The Sun first reported the news - unconfirmed at the time - around about a week ago and attributed the move to "tension between the brothers" according to their royal source.
