Frogmore House & Garden reopens for the first time in three years

frogmore House, the residence where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated their wedding reception in 2018, will open its doors to the public for the first time in three years.

The charming royal retreat in Windsor Castle’s home park offers visitors unique access to its exquisite interiors, grand rooms, meandering lakes, wooded hills, glades, walkways and bridges as part of the three annual Charity Garden Days.

Built in the 17th century, the interiors certainly have a few stories to tell. From Queen Charlotte’s love of art to Queen Mary’s famous flower room filled with artificial arrangements, the sprawling home is a testament to the interests of the royals who once resided there.

Over in the gardens you will find historic plantings including tulip trees and sequoias, an 18th century summer house in the form of a Gothic ruin and a tea house originally built for Queen Victoria. The outdoor area stretches over 35 acres, so comfortable shoes are a must if you plan to explore it all.

Frogmore House has been owned by the Royal Family since 1972 and has welcomed monarchs over the years. Although no longer an inhabited residence, the estate is frequently visited by royalty for entertainment.

“Everyone in the National Garden Scheme is eternally grateful to Her Majesty The Queen on this very special year for continuing so generously to allow our charity an open house in the gardens of Frogmore House,” said George Plumptre, Chief Executive of the National Garden Scheme.

“It is a highlight in our annual calendar when visitors have rare access to this important and romantic landscaped garden. The open house will make a big contribution to the donations we raise for our care and health recipients.’
