Well, this certainly is interesting timing. About a mere month after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their move from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, Frogmore House is opening up to the public. At the end of May -- yes, only weeks after the Duchess of Sussex will have given birth -- royal fans will be able to purchase tickets to get a tour of the iconic entertaining space and lush grounds of centuries-old royal home. 

  • Frogmore House -- which is not to be confused with Frogmore Cottage (where the duke and duchess live) -- is where Harry and Meghan took their iconic engagement photos.

    The reason the house is going to be available for public tours -- for three days only -- is because ticket sales are going toward various charities. 

    According to Royal Collection Trust, on May 28, ticket proceeds will benefit the National Garden Scheme; on May 29 they'll go toward the British Heart Foundation; and on May 30, sales will help the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society. (If you're wondering where to get tickets -- which will no doubt go quickly -- you can purchase them directly via each of the charites' websites.)

  • According to the website, Frogmore House has been an "enduring attraction for monarchs and their families since the house was purchased by Queen Charlotte in 1790."

    What can royal fans expect from a tour of the stunning house and grounds, which, yep, is where Harry and Meghan held their evening wedding reception? Well, in addition to learning about the house’s royal history and past residents, the tour will conclude with a glass of champagne in the Colonnade Room, which overlooks the lake and garden. 

    Not bad!

  • Given that Harry and Meghan just moved to Frogmore Cottage -- and that the duchess is going to give birth any day now -- the timing is definitely curious.

    On the one hand, the tours are sure to rake in big bucks for some seriously important charities. But on the other, what if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want to take a post-baby stroll on the grounds of the house, which is just a 10-minute walk away from their residence?

    Guess they'll have to restrict themselves to the "endless acres" they have on their property those three days. 

  • If you're not able to make it to Frogmore on any of the three days in May, you still can catch an intimate glimpse of the gorgeous home. 

    In August, private tours for groups of 15 people or more are available for bookings on certain days. 

    Who knows? By then perhaps Harry and Meghan will have their bearings enough that they'll pop on over to say hello. Either way, it'll surely be a day to remember.
