Paris - Prince Harry and his wife Meghan's new home in Windsor cost £2.4-million (about R44-million) to renovate, royal accounts showed this week, prompting criticism from anti-monarchy campaigners.
Queen Elizabeth's grandson and his wife moved into Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Castle estate before the birth of their son Archie on May 6.
The residence, west of London, had been split into five separate homes but was turned back into one property in a six-month refurbishment ahead of their move-in.
"The property had not been the subject of work for some years and had already been earmarked for renovation," said Michael Stevens, who runs the monarchy's accounts.
"The building was returned to a single residence and outdated infrastructure was replaced to guarantee the long-term future of the property.
