The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are lucky enough to have the extensive grounds of Frogmore House and Gardens on their doorstep should they choose to spend time in the UK at Frogmore Cottage. The garden of elegant Frogmore House, hidden away in Windsor Great Park within walking distance of the castle, has been a favourite retreat for successive queens from George III’s wife, Queen Charlotte, who laid out the present garden, to Queen Victoria who built the royal mausoleum in the garden.

Although it is no longer an occupied royal residence, Frogmore House and Garden is frequently used by the Royal Family for private entertaining.

Providing a spacious setting for the great house, with majestic trees and lakes and views to the village church on one side, the garden today is full of a secret history.
