With the Duke and Duchess of Sussex living just around the corner, Windsor has become somewhat of a fairytale town and is a marvellous place to raise a family.’
While the property might need some renovations, the new owners could take some tips from their neighbours Meghan and Harry who reportedly spent a whopping £50,000 on soundproofing unit for their Windsor home in order to block out noise from Heathrow jets.
The couple are said to have spent a record £3million renovating their Grade II listed Frogmore Cottage which is situated in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The soundproofing measures are thought to include triple glazed windows, which will be handy in blocking out sounds from the 14 flights that pass within a mile of the house every thirty minutes.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were gifted Frogmore Cottage by the Queen and the building work will be covered by the taxpayer-funded Sovereign Grant.
However, it is expected that Harry and Meghan will pay for the sound proofing out of their own pocket.
