The plan of the soon-to-be parents Harry and Meghan to live at their new Frogmore Cottage does not in any way mean they are running away from the rest of the royal family. However, who can blame the two for wanting their privacy, and their wish to hide away from the constant media coverage?
The journalists and news outlets treated Meghan terribly during the past year. But what is the real reason for these living arrangements of the famous couple? Is the Frogmore Cottage going to be completely hidden away, and serve as a bastion for them preventing any paparazzi from snapping, or is there going to be more of the same?
Building a life they want, with proper security
Anybody who has been following the everyday happenings of Meghan and Harry should be familiar with the fact that they planned for their own way as members of royalty. They are not very friendly with the annoying paparazzi and are familiar with the potential situations heavy media coverage could bring them.
In addition, the pair very much wish to reinvent royal protocols into something relatable, in order to connect with common people more. Frogmore Cottage is a great representation of this life.
It goes without saying that the family will enjoy much more privacy at the cottage, than they would at Kensington Palace. One thing still unknown is the level of security is at their Frogmore home. While some claim it is reminiscent of Fort Knox, other reports suggest if any security upgrades are there at all.
Recently, there have been many upgrades and renovations at the Frogmore, all in order to suit Harry and Meghan’s living choices. This whole estate seems like the perfect spot to raise kids without it looking like a fortress, with guards at every corner. It will probably have modernized security tech installed to keep the family safe.
All things considered, this really does sound like the ultimate place for an escape. Based on the following months, it remains to be seen if they will be able to truly hideaway at the cottage. You can never be too safe from the paparazzi, and the constant chaos surrounding their baby tells us they will have to take additional measures.
No matter what, the royal couple will always connect with people
Despite the wish of the media to make it look like Meghan and Prince Harry want to run away, any true fan can clearly see they really like to be around and spend time with people. Meghan’s past in show business means that she enjoys interacting with the public, as well as her close friends. Harry is equally famous for being friendly with the people, commoners and VIPs alike. Therefore, neither of them are people who wish to hide in their own royal bubble for the remainder of their lives.
At this moment, it is understandable they want extra privacy, as their firstborn should arrive at any moment. After all the drama and chaos surrounding the birth dwindle down, they will surely be back to their old ways.
Having a home to unwind in is important for public royals
Exactly like many other famous people who must interact with ordinary people throughout their respective careers, returning to an isolated place that is your home is a great way to recover from overexposure and pressures of the media.
Without a doubt, both Harry and Meghan will be around millions of fans and people at charities and other public events, during their lifetime together as members of UK royalty. The best way to endure such a stressful life is to have a home to run away to after a stressful day, and be with your family.
