The Duke & Duchess of Sussex will move to Frogmore Cottage early next year

Every since their engagement last year, Harry & Meghan have been living in Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace. Following their wedding, and the announcement that the Duchess is expecting their first child, the couple has decided to move their house from Kensington to Windsor. Early next year, the Duke & Duchess will move in Frogmore Cottage, which is getting some renovations to transform it into a family home rather than a house for the royal staff. Kensington Palace will still be the couple’s official office, as the official statement explains below:

KENSINGTON PALACE – New Official Residence For The Duke & Duchess of Sussex

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate early next year as they prepare for the arrival of their first child. The couple have lived at Nottingham Cottage since their engagement last year.

Windsor is a very special place for Their Royal Highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate.

The Duke and Duchess’s office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace.

HRH The Duchess of Sussex receives her own Coat of Arms

Upon her marriage to Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, The Duchess has received a Coat of Arms, with many symbols representing her native California. He Coat of Arms will now be joined with the one of her husband.

A Coat of Arms has been created for The Duchess of Sussex. The design of the Arms was agreed and approved by Her Majesty The Queen and Mr. Thomas Woodcock (Garter King of Arms and Senior Herald in England), who is based at the College of Arms in London.

Her Royal Highness worked closely with the College of Arms throughout the design process to create a Coat of Arms that was both personal and representative.

The blue background of the shield represents the Pacific Ocean off the California coast, while the two golden rays across the shield are symbolic of the sunshine of The Duchess’s home state. The three quills represent communication and the power of words.

Beneath the shield on the grass sits a collection of golden poppies, California’s state flower, and wintersweet, which grows at Kensington Palace.
It is customary for Supporters of the shield to be assigned to Members of the Royal Family, and for wives of Members of the Royal Family to have one of their husband’s Supporters and one relating to themselves. The Supporter relating to The Duchess of Sussex is a songbird with wings elevated as if flying and an open beak, which with the quill represents the power of communication.

A Coronet has also been assigned to The Duchess of Sussex. It is the Coronet laid down by a Royal Warrant of 1917 for the sons and daughters of the Heir Apparent. It is composed of two crosses patée, four fleurs-de-lys and two strawberry leaves.

The arms of a married woman are shown with those of her husband and the technical term is that they are impaled, meaning placed side by side in the same shield.

Mr. Thomas Woodcock, Garter King of Arms said: “The Duchess of Sussex took a great interest in the design. Good heraldic design is nearly always simple and the Arms of The Duchess of Sussex stand well beside the historic beauty of the quartered British Royal Arms. Heraldry as a means of identification has flourished in Europe for almost nine hundred years and is associated with both individual people and great corporate bodies such as Cities, Universities and for instance the Livery Companies in the City of London. ”
