With their first baby on the way, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are preparing for the next chapter in their lives - moving into their new family home in Windsor. And while the pair have gotten used to married life in London, the royal couple have made a monumental decision to bring up their future children just 100 miles away from the city. It was announced in December that Prince Harry and Meghan will move to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate ahead of the arrival of their unborn child.

Harry and Meghan's new home is a special place for the couple, as it faces the stunning grounds of their wedding reception venue, Frogmore House, within Windsor's private Home Park. But what are the fun activities the couple will get to enjoy as a family? Take a look at our list below for suggestions:

This is the largest Doll's House in the world, and it comes complete with flushing loos, electric lights, lifts as well as hot and cold water. Built in the early 1920s, the house was a gift to Queen Mary for all her efforts in the First World War - and it's even more luxurious than many life-sized homes.
