What is Frogmore House?
Frogmore House is an official royal residence located in Home Park, not far from Windsor Castle. The estate was originally bought by George III in 1792 as a gift for his wife, Queen Charlotte, and has remained in the family ever since.
In addition to the home, which features decor by 18th-century flower painter Mary Moser, and furnishings from the now-decommissioned Royal Yacht Britannia, Frogmore is also known for its beautiful gardens with over 4,000 trees and shrubs, and the royal Mausoleum where Queen Victoria and Prince Albert are buried.
The space already holds special significance to the soon-to-be bride and groom.

This isn't the first royal wedding reception to be held at Frogmore House.
Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly held theirs in the house back in 2008.
The public can only visit a few days every year.
Unlike some of the other royal residences, Frogmore House is very rarely open to the public. If you'd like to see inside the space in 2018, it will be open June 5-7 for charity days, where all proceeds will be donated. In August, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the house is open to pre-booked groups of 15+ people only.
For more information on admission fees and when the house is open, visit the Royal Collection's website.
