Meghan and Harry may have forked out £500k for soundproofing at Frogmore Cottage 

Experts have claimed that Harry and Meghan could have spent £500,000 on sound proofing Frogmore cottage.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex live under the Heathrow pathway and apparently wanted to block out the noise from the planes.  

Living just ten miles away from the runways of one of London‘s busiest airports they were no doubt hoping to block out the sound of over 1300 daily planes for new baby Archie.   

However locals have reacted with anger, after finding out how much the soundproofing cost.

The news comes after it was revealed last week that renovations at Frogmore cottage came to around £2.4 million of taxpayers money.

One local businessman Kye Merkett, 45, who lives in Datchett, four miles from Heathrow, said to the Mirror: ‘There’s no reason they couldn’t pay for it.

‘They should put their hand in their own pocket or put up with the noise like the rest of us.’

It emerged last week that and Meghan have so far spent a whopping £2.4 million of public funds on their home improvements. 

The total bill to taxpayers once Frogmore — where the couple moved to this April and are now bringing up baby Archie — is finished is expected to reach up to £3.2 million.

This money comes from the Sovereign Grant, valued at £82.2 million this year and comprised of profits from the Queen’s property portfolio (the Crown Estate), which are paid to the Government.  

Twenty-five per cent of these profits are paid to the monarchy to fund the upkeep of its property, travel, security and staff. While the Sovereign Grant isn’t taxpayer money, it is considered to be public funds, belonging to the state.

The rennovations were said to be spent on new water mains, a nursery for Archie, a designer kitchen and high security.

While this morning the Mail on Sunday revealed that the couple spent £5,000 on a freestanding copper bath for their bedroom.

Set free-standing in the bedroom – as is the current height of fashion – the bath is produced by luxury firm William Holland, a supplier for the Soho House chain.

Depending on exactly which model they chose, it will have cost up to £5,000.
