 Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s fans now have a chance to look around their plush wedding reception venue  Members of the public are being invited to explore the stunning Frogmore House and gardens during a three-day charity open weekend in May  The couple’s wedding reception, hosted by the Prince of Wales, was held at the historical Windsor building and their engagement photos were taken in the grounds  They reportedly had a summer picnic there in 2017 before getting engaged.   However a “small area” of the manor will be out of bounds when it throws open its doors next month in order to stop snooping royal fans peering into Meghan and Harry’s new home Frogmore Cottage   By this time, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will have welcomed their first child and be living as a family of three at nearby Frogmore Cottage on the estate   And it has now been confirmed there will be banned areas in the gardens of Frogmore House to stop prying eyes trying to get to close the couple’s newly-renovated 10-bed property, the Telegraphs reports   As we reported last week, Meghan and Harry waved goodbye to their abode at Kensington Palace and moved into their new Windsor home as they prepare for their bundle of joy’s arrival    It is understood a £3million renovation was carried out to turn the Grade II listed cottage into a family home, but work overran meaning their move in date was delayed  The home was gifted to the Duke and Duchess by the Queen last year, with Kensington Palace saying Windsor is a “very special place” for the couple  The cottage is just 200 metres from the Long Walk – which is open to the public    Frogmore house is also half a mile south of Windsor Castle, the Queen’s summer residence, and St George’s Chapel, where Harry and Meghan tied the knot in May as millions around the world watched on TV  Visitors on the open days will be able to explore the estate and see its own man-made lake, Frogmore Lake It is also home to the Royal Burial Ground and the tomb of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert  Those interred at the burial ground include King Edward VIII and his wife Wallis Simpson – the divorced American socialite whose intended marriage to Edward sparked a constitutional crisis and led to his abdication in 1936  The House was also once home to Victoria’s mother, the Duchess of Kent, for almost 20 years Her remains are also held there, in an elegant mausoleum, which is not open to visitors  Frogmore House is steeped in history and was built in the 1680s and purchased by Queen Charlotte, wife of George III in 1792   It is open to the public just one month a year, in August, plus the three charity open days in May, which is raising money for National Garden Scheme, British Heart Foundation and National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society  Tickets cost up to £35 a person through the Royal Collection Trust.  The sprawling grounds allowed Queen Charlotte to indulge her love of botany, as the gardens, initially flat, were filled with 4,00 trees and many rare and unusual plants  Charlotte’s Vice-Chamberlain, Major William Price, and the Rev. Christopher Alderson of Derbyshire transformed the estate, creating the winding lake, wooded mounds, glades, walks and bridges in the Picturesque style  Inside, there are grand and elegant rooms – including one decorated by 18th-century flower painter Mary Moser Princess Elizabeth, the daughter of George III and Charlotte, painted garlands in The Cross Gallery  The Britannia Room is furnished with items from the Royal Yacht Britannia, which was decommissioned in 1997  Watercolours by Victoria’s daughters, Princesses Victoria and Louise, are still in the House  Public access is extremely limited because Frogmore House is still used by the Queen and other members of the Royal Family as a retreat for private and official royal engagements  It was built by Hugh May, Charles II’s architect, and given a name that refers to the abundance of frogs in the surrounding, low-lying marshy area  It became a royal residence about 100 years later and has become a hideaway for royal couples and families, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and their children  Victoria was fond of Frogmore’s peace and quiet, and it is said to have been her favourite retreat, visiting during her long widowhood and working on her papers there  In 2008, it hosted the wedding reception of Princess Anne’s son Peter Phillips and his Canadian wife Autumn  Last year, the Queen called it a “wonderfully relaxing environment” that “holds a special place in (her) family’s affection”   Frogmore House will be open 28-30 May 2019.
