Buckingham Palace announced the development in a statement: 'The Queen has agreed to the creation of a new Household for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following their marriage in May past year.

The duchess, who is said to be eight months pregnant, is believed to be preparing for the birth of her first child.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have officially received Queen Elizabeth II's blessing with the announcement that a new royal household will be created, allowing them to split from Kensington Palace. "The Household, which will be created with the support of The Queen and The Prince of Wales, will be established in the spring", a statement from Buckingham Palace read, per Town And Country magazine Thursday.

While Meghan and Harry will be moving to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor later this spring, their office will also be moving - out of Kensington Palace and into Buckingham Palace.

Meghan has been busy with her final few royal events over the last few weeks.

Kensington Palace said his new role will include "advising Their Royal Highnesses on their charitable initiatives - including work on the environment, mental health, and early childhood".
