On the one hand, the venue choice continues a nearly year tradition of British royals going to the estate and gardens for joyful occasions. King George III purchased the land in as a country retreat for Queen Charlotte who, coincidentally, some experts believe was biracial , as Markle is. Later remodeled by architect James Wyatt, it got its name for the plethora of frogs in the low-lying marsh areas. It is thought that Queen Victoria, after inheriting the estate from Princess Augusta in the early s, had her meddling mother live in Frogmore to keep her at a distance.
