Queens forgotten mansion has burial ground and Harry and Meghan wedding link

The Queen owns an incredible number of grand properties and there are some that she's never even lived in herself.

One of these properties is situated on the Windsor estate – and has been a Royal residence since 1792.

The forgotten mansion, which has reportedly been looked at by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is Frogmore House.

But this must not be confused with Frogmore Cottage, which is located on the same estate and was the former home of Harry and Meghan before they relocated to the States.

Frogmore House was purchased by George III's wife Charlotte and currently remains completely unoccupied.

The Queen has never chosen to live there during her whole 70 years as monarch.

Frogmore House interestingly gets its name from the large abundance of frogs that live around the marshland of its grounds.

The grand property is used as a public attraction and will open again in August 2022 for keen visitors wanting to get a look at how a Royal resides, following a closure during the Covid pandemic.

The inside of the house has a Cross Gallery that's filled to the brim

A Britannia Room in the mansion also features several notable items from the Royal Yacht which were handpicked by Prince Philip.

The public will also find a Staircase Hall, which features large wall murals by French artist Louis Laguerre.

As well as a tourist attraction, the mansion has played a key role in Royal occasions, including the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

There has been recent speculation that Prince William and Kate Middleton are considering a move to Windsor to be closer to the Queen.

According to the Daily Mail's Richard Kay, Frogmore House is one of the properties that William has looked at.

He wrote: "The Grade I-listed mansion close to the Windsor burial grounds where Prince Harry and Meghan held their wedding reception.

"It fell out of favour as a royal residence in the 1920s but it would certainly fulfil William’s requirement of a secure and private spot within the royal estate."
