Prince Harry's grandmother has a whole host of royal residences up and down the UK where the royal couple could stay, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex already have their own regal residence in the UK, Frogmore Cottage, which is where they are likely to reside.

Earlier in the year, the couple renewed the lease on their home in Windsor which is where they lived with their son Archie when they were permanent UK residents.

Prince Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie stayed in the property with her husband Jack Brooksbank and their son August for a while, but the family moved out recently, sparking rumours that the Sussexes could be using their UK base more often.

The house has five bedrooms and is located on the Windsor estate, incredibly close to the Queen's mammoth home, Windsor Castle.

However, it's possible that the monarch won't be at her castle home in Windsor, as she is currently on her annual summer break at Balmoral in Scotland, where she has been since July.

Speaking about their upcoming visit, a spokesperson for the couple said: "Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September."
