The Queen reportedly vetoed creation of independent household for Harry and Meghan

After news came last week that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were starting their own household apart from Kensington Palace, which they now fall under, a new report suggests that the royal couple wanted to start an entirely new court.

According to a new report out in The Sunday Times, Meghan and Harry have lobbied for an autonomous new court to be helmed under their office as an independent outfit, but Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, were reportedly not feeling up to grant the request.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are counting down the days until they bring their firstborn into the world, but this weekend, the pair spent their time celebrating the birth of another baby.

A source tells ET that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who now reside at Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace, are "due to move into Frogmore Cottage, provided the renovation works are complete in the next few weeks".

The source continued, "There is an institutional structure that doesn't allow that kind of independence".

She agreed to the creation of a new household for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle but the Queen is said to have rejected their plans to completely break free from Buckingham Palace.

Kensington Palace has not responded to the story.

Harry and William grew up in Kensington Palace, with William now living in a large apartment at the palace with wife Kate and their three kids, while Harry and Meghan have been staying in a nearby two-bedroom cottage also on the palace grounds.
