Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Complete Frogmore Cottage Renovation

Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s home, Frogmore cottage, which is a five-bedroom house on the grounds of Windsor Castle, is finally complete after renovations.

The Palace revealed that the British taxpayers ended up paying around $3 million for the home’s renovations. However, the royal couple did pay for some of the upgrades themselves.

Specifically, “anything moveable” or in the cottage’s gardens were paid for directly by the royal couple.

“All fixtures and fittings were paid for by their Royal Highnesses,” a source told People. “Curtains, furnishings — all that would be paid separately, paid privately.”

“If a member of the royal family says, ‘We want a better kitchen than you’re prepared to provide with public money,’ then that would fall to them privately and they would have to meet the cost,” the source continued. “If they want that higher specification, they have to pay the extra.”

So what upgrades did the cottage undergo?

“A very large proportion of the ceiling beams and floor joists were defective and had to be replaced,” the source said. “The heating systems were outdated and inefficient and were not to the environmental standards that we would expect today….The electrical system also needed to be substantially replaced and rewired, even extending to the establishment of a separate upgraded electrical substation, which was in addition to the main works on the property.”

“And new gas and water mains had to be introduced to the property, replacing the five separate links that were there for the property before and were in a bad state of repair,” they continued.
