Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Have a New Residence

Get the moving van! Your favorite royal couple is moving to a new address. It’s been a whirlwind year for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan.

The couple tied the knot in May and announced in October that they are expecting their first child together. The newlyweds also had their first royal tour as a married couple visiting Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga.

Now that Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, have returned from their royal duties the couple is in nesting mode and that includes a new residence. The couple has been graciously gifted a cottage from the Queen as a wedding gift. The Frogmore House is located on the Royal Windsor estate. The Queen gifted a cottage to William and Kate also when they married.

A source reveals the cottage is going through an extensive renovation for Prince Harry and Meghan’s lifestyle.  “It is very old. It was five separate apartments where the palace staff has been living for years. Those will all be knocked into one. It was 20 rooms total, [including] ten bedrooms.”

Harry and Meghan are upsizing from their apartment at the Kensington Palace grounds where they have been residing. More space means the royal couple can personalize their home to their personal interests.

The royal source reveals, “The property does not have a gym or a yoga studio, but Harry and Meghan are planning to build an all-purpose space for gym and personal training use.”

The source also reveals the cottage will have a nursery for Harry and Meghan’s bundle of joy on the way. But Harry and Meghan may have to wait a bit longer to move into their new home. The royal source reveals Harry and Meghan’s cottage most likely will not be move-in ready until early next Fall.

“While they’re really hoping to be moved into Frogmore in time for the birth, they’re also realistic … With the kind of delays these projects face and the limited amount of time they have, they’re mentally prepared to not be in the new house until autumn 2019.”

And what the soon-to-be parents are really looking forward to is some privacy. Harry and Meghan’s top priority is raising their child in private away from the public eye. “They want their children to grow up in as normal an environment as possible,” the source reveals.

Pippa Middleton Beams in Floral Showcasing Her Barely There Bump

This time last year friends and family were gathering for the nuptials of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews. A few things have changed since last year for Pippa, celebrating her first wedding anniversary today the couple is also expecting their first child.

Pippa arrived at the wedding of the year looking radiant as ever! And there was no maternity dress for this pregnant mum.

Pippa arrived at St. George’s Chapel for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding wearing a mint green and pink floral dress by British Label The Fold and earrings by British jeweler Robinson Pelham.

The dress was constructed of a pleated skirt and was made of Italian silk. The dress’s floral artwork was hand painted in Italy for the label. The intricate detail of the delicate floral print was absolutely stunning against the canvas of the dress. The 34-year-old expectant mum wore a hat by milliner, Jess Collett.

Pippa walked hand in hand with her husband James, 42, into the service along with her parents Carole and Michael Middleton and brother James Middleton.

Pippa who is thought to be just three months along in her pregnancy barely showed any hint of a bump. The smile on her face as she walked by the crowd outside the chapel was a sure sign that Middleton has a lot to be happy about.

Charlotte Sutcliffe-Smith, PR for The Fold confirmed the dress was not a maternity dress and said in a statement, “We are absolutely delighted she has worn it.”

James and Pippa Middleton married last year on May 20, 2017. But the couple has known each other for nearly a decade.

Reports say Pippa and James first met in St. Barth’s where Jame’s parents own a luxury hotel. The newlyweds dated for a short time in 2012 before Pippa went on to date other gents. The two stayed in touch over the years and gave their relationship a second shot in 2015. In July 2016 James proposed to Pippa with an Art Deco, Asscher-cut diamond ring.

Now, these two will soon be parents and if the timeline of Pippa’s pregnancy is correct her baby and Prince Louis will be less than a year an apart!

Some People are Praying for Prince George to be Gay

Is Prince George gay?  Are people hoping and praying that divine intervention will turn Prince George Gay?

It has been published in numerous articles over the past couple of days that we should all pray for Prince George, who is four years old, to be gay. The question is why?

Rev. Kelvin Holdsworth writes, “It would help the advancement of the LGBTQ rights in the Church of England.” Also, the idea is that it would influence the Church to support same-sex marriage.

Presently, a same-sex couple is not permitted to marry in the Church of England but is allowed to marry in most of Britain. The Scottish Episcopal Church, for example, leaves the decision up to their priests.

Holdsworth states, “it really should be up to the Archbishop of Canterbury to come to the decision what stance the Church of England takes on same-sex marriage.” Some of the more traditional church members are infuriated by Holdsworth’s words. They believe it is “unchristian” and “unkind” to pray for such a thing.

Why is Prince George’s Sexual Orientation a Thing Already?

Prince George is only a four years old child. Born into the Royal Family, he already lives a life under the microscope and scrutiny of the public. Gaven Ashenden, a Christian Episcopal Church missionary bishop, says “this does not have Prince George’s best interest at heart.”

People went onto Twitter speaking their own thoughts about such a controversial topic. One person tweeted, “putting pressure on the Prince to be gay will only do more harm than good.”

This hot topic comes at a very engaging time. Earlier in the week, Prince George’s uncle announced the much, anticipated engagement to his American girlfriend Meghan Markle.

Ms. Markle has been married once before. The couple notified the public that they are set to marry May in 2018. The wedding will take place at St. George’s Chapel. The church preaches marriage is for life. Only since the early 2000’s did the church allow divorced members to marry in the church and just in special circumstances.

It seems, in some aspect, the Church of England and the Royal Family is modernizing with the times.

Nobody can predict the future. It certainly looks like same-sex marriage could possibly be welcomed in the Church of England when Prince George is old enough to marry.

Kate Middleton’s Surprise Appearance

An expectant Kate Middleton and Prince William met Paddington Bear on Monday (October 16) at the cuddly character’s namesake train station in London, England.
