Hundreds of royal fans living in London were treated to a visit on the grounds of Frogmore House for three days starting on Tuesday. Of course, their main concern was photographing Frogmore Cottage.


The annual three-day charity event was that much more exciting with the knowledge that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might have been nearby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into Frogmore Cottage in early May.

Frogmore House is a mere 20 feet from the royal members' cottage at its closest point. Visitors strained to get the best pictures of the couple's residence and posted them online.


The green gardens of Frogmore House were a beautiful sight, but we're sure that fans would have liked to get a peek of the beloved royal pair. Unfortunately, they were nowhere to be found.

Of course, baby Archie, who arrived on May 6, was also out of sight. However, the excitement of being so close to the duke and duchess' residence wasn't at all dampened.

According to the Daily Mail, some people claimed they walked right past the gates of the Cottage. People weren't actually supposed to take pictures of the home, but they ignored warnings.


Persons accompanied their photos with comments about the excessive noise of airplanes flying above the residence. The outlet reported that Harry and Markle spent $63,100.50 on a soundproof unit though, so Archie should be fine.

About 400 cars were counted at the parking lot of Frogmore House, which will be open until Thursday. Tuesday's charity host was the National Open Garden Scheme, Wednesday's was the British Heart Foundation, and Thursday will be the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society.


Frogmore Cottage is a 10-bedroom private residence that Harry and Markle chose to go from living with Prince William and Kate Middleton at Kensington Palace.

A source from People magazine who allegedly saw the inside of the Cottage described the place as "cute and warm" and said that the energy is "so much better [than Kensington Palace]."

She continued:

“I presume it must be nice to get out and away. Without neighbors who are all either family or staff [at Kensington Palace], they will now have their own thing."

Of course, for another day, it will be less their own as hundreds continue to come close to the residence. We hope royal fans make the most out of their royal garden visit with respect to authorities and the family.
