‘Exhausted’ Meghan Markle Pulled Out Of Zambia Trip Over Zika Virus Fears

‘Exhausted’ Meghan Markle Pulled Out Of Zambia Trip Over Zika Virus Fears

Meghan spent last Christmas with Prince Harry and the royals as just his fiancée.

Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, held their wedding reception at Frogmore House, situated across from their new cottage, which was gifted to them by Queen Elizabeth. The future official residence would be Frogmore Cottage near Windsor Castle, where the couple had married on 19 May.

There's also been speculation that Doria is planning t0 move to England for good, so it's possible that her grandchild duties are just part of the reason why she would have her own space at Frogmore Cottage.

As the Daily Mail reports, the Duchess of Sussex won't be going to Zambia, and will instead be spending time in London with her mother, Doria Ragland. William is a husband and father of three and his focus is primarily on them, and Harry will soon be a father.

The move is to allow the couple more space for their growing family as Meghan is expecting her first child next spring, the palace said.

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle reportedly have a not-so-great relationship which has forced the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to move out of Kensington Palace.

The property has a special meaning to the soon to be parents as it is where they held their private wedding party and had their attractive engagement photos taken.

Frogmore House is also where Harry and Meghan posed for their candid engagement photos a year ago. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now residing in Nottingham Cottage within the Kensington Palace grounds.

There are also claims the move is down to increasing tensions between William and Harry, who were meant to live next door to one another. The Duke and Duchess will continue to work from Kensington Palace, where their current offices are.

"Kate and Meghan are very different people", the source added. "Now Harry and Meghan don't want to live next to William and Kate and want to strike out on their own".

The parents-to-be are funding the structural and landscaping elements of the project with money from the Sovereign Grant, according to Kensington Palace, while they'll be footing the bill for the decor themselves.
