The Queen's last-minute visit to Duchess Meghan

The 93-year-old monarch has paid a visit to the soon-to-be parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, at their new home in Frogmore Cottage.

The newly renovated home, which lies on the grounds of Windsor Castle, has been seen by the Queen just weeks after the couple has moved in but not just to see the changes.

Royal insiders said the Queen wanted to see Duchess Meghan before the imminent arrival of her first child with Prince Harry.

“Her Majesty wanted to formally welcome the Sussexes to their new home so she was their first visitor,” a royal insider told The Sun.

“After all, they’ve practically moved into her back garden. She visited with other family members and Harry and Meghan were delighted to show them round.”

The home is said to be a favourite royal residence of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's.

Aside from Her Majesty, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also reportedly were hosted by Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan following the Easter church services at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, as well as Princess Anne’s daughter Zara and husband Mike Tindall.

Frogmore Cottage recently underwent a massive $5.5 million renovation, in preparation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moving in.
