London - Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have spent £2.4-million (about R44-million) of public money doing up their Windsor home.
The newlyweds moved out of Kensington Palace this spring amid reports of a rift with his brother William and sister-in-law Kate.
The overhaul of Frogmore Cottage was approved by the Queen, according to accounts released on Monday.
The 19th-century property had been converted into five smaller staff houses and needed to be turned back into a single home. Ceilings and floors were replaced along with the addition of new bathrooms, bedrooms and a kitchen.
Aides say any costs above the agreed budget were met privately by the couple.
