The home was also fitting and more comfortable as they were preparing to welcome baby Archie.

But now, with the Sussexes’ departure as senior royals, they plan to spend more time in Canada and only intend on using the home as “they continue to support the Monarchy". 

They said it would be so that their family "will always have a place to call home in the UK."

With less time at Frogmore Cottage, the paid employees who once serviced Harry and Meghan – a house manager and a cleaner –are now being redeployed.
