Eugenie has been living at Frogmore Cottage on the Queen's Windsor estate, a property that is owned by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are living in the USA, they have allowed Eugenie and Jack to use the house to accommodate their growing family.

Situated in front of an incredible lake and Frogmore House, the Grade-II building is reported to boast five bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room and a nursery. The latter was originally designed for Archie, but will it no doubt come in use for August.

The home underwent extensive renovation works before Meghan and Harry moved in back in April 2019, and it is said to be decorated with vegan and organic paint while Archie's lemon-yellow namesake Chrysanthemums are also planted in the garden. 

In total, the grounds of the Frogmore Estate cover a total of 33 acres within Home Park, which adjoins Windsor Castle, where the Queen spent much of the coronavirus pandemic.

Princess Eugenie's son has already been able to enjoy a small section of the expansive grounds, as proven by a photo she shared to mark Mother's Day. It showed August lying in the garden on a striped mat, with a large lawn area and several bunches of vivid yellow daffodils planted around him.

With Prince Harry reportedly staying at Frogmore Cottage in the days leading up to Prince Philip's funeral, after flying back to the UK without his pregnant wife and son, he will no doubt be reminiscing about Archie's first home.
