Prince William and Catherine pay secret visit to see Meghan at Frogmore Cottage

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently waved goodbye to hectic city life, as they left behind their Kensington Palace home for the country retreat of their new house, Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor.

And while Prince Harry has been out and about on a smattering of royal engagements before the birth of their first child, it's thought that Meghan has been ensconced in the privacy of her new home, as she's expected to give birth any day now.

Of course, leaving London behind also meant no longer being neighbours with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. But according to royal reporter Omid Scobie, the royal couple have been to see Harry and Meghan at their new home already, to share their support.

A source told Harpers Bazaar that Prince William and Catherine went to see the Duchess of Sussex on Easter Sunday, when they were in the area for a church service.

They said, “William and Catherine visited because Meghan was unable to attend the service. They wanted to be supportive and see how she is doing. It was a lovely afternoon.”

Prior to their visit at Frogmore, Prince Harry had joined his brother and sister-in-law, as well as other members of the royal family, at St. George's Chapel, in Windsor Castle.

The source also revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan have created a 'lovely' family home at Frogmore Cottage, which required an extensive refurbishment before they moved in.

They said, “Meg and Harry are really settled in now. It’s truly a lovely home and they have done such a great job with the space. So much light and positive energy. I couldn’t think of a better place to start a family.”

And it seems the royal couple have settled just in time, given that the Duchess is thought to be expecting their first baby very soon.

While her official due date has not been confirmed, Meghan herself revealed that the baby is expected to arrive in late April, early May.

And with the days ticking away until May, it's likely that the royal baby will arrive any day now!
