Recently, the Queen approved Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's settlement in a separate household. This relocation comes ahead of the arrival of Sussex baby, due at the end of April or early May.

The couple will enter their own skies at Windsor’s Frogmore Estate, where it is being renovated to accommodate the young family. Their office will be based at Buckingham Palace along with their own dedicated staff.

Meghan & Harry are understood to have lobbied for an autonomous new court, free from the jurisdiction of Buckingham Palace. But the joint-funders of their office, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles, denied this breakaway.

As published on Express UK, a source revealed:

They wanted their household to be entirely independent of Buckingham Palace but were told ‘no’. There is an institutional structure that doesn’t allow that kind of independence.

The mounting expenses

Ignoring this rejection, the Queen's best interests remain with the couple.

Their Frogmore haven was laying in a run-down state that needed heavy restoration. The renovation costs have hiked to about $3.8 million that will all be bored by the Crown. The great-grandmother-to-be seems to be making sure the Sussex couple have a comfortable life ahead. All for their baby it is!

Do you find this denial of request reasonable? Or maybe, the Sussex family would have functioned better their way?
