The couple’s spokeswoman stated that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been asked to leave their home in Britain, Frogmore Cottage.
It was previously stated that the Duke of York had been offered the house on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The news was confirmed by a representative for Prince Harry and Meghan. The Royal Palace has not responded.
Archie and Lilibet, the duke and duchess’s two children, now reside with them in California.
In 2020, they resigned from their roles as working royals and soon after left the Country.
The late Queen gave the royal couple Frogmore Cottage, a Grade-II listed 10-bedroom home in the grounds of Windsor Castle in Berkshire.
The Crown Estate’s property had renovations from Prince Harry and Meghan in 2018–19 at an estimated cost of £2.4 million. Prior to the duke’s full repayment, the expense was initially funded by tax payers through the Sovereign Grant.
Days after Harry released his incendiary book, Spare, Buckingham Palace reportedly ordered them to leave the premises in January.
The book, which was published in January and quickly surpassed all previous non-fiction bestsellers in the UK since records began in 1998, contained allegations that Prince Harry had been physically assaulted by the Prince of Wales, his brother. Additionally, he said that the Prince of Wales and he had pleaded with their father to forgo marrying Camilla, the current Queen Consort.
Second son of the late Queen and current monarch, Prince Andrew, resides in the close-by 31-bedroom Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire.
After a contentious Newsnight interview concerning claims that he had sexually assaulted Virginia Giuffre, he resigned from his position as a working royal in 2019. He has consistently refuted the charges.
He paid an undisclosed sum in February 2022 to resolve the civil sexual assault claim Ms. Giuffre had filed against him in the US.
Recent rumors—unconfirmed by the BBC—suggested that the King was planning to reduce Andrew’s annual payment, which may prevent him from paying for the upkeep of his house.
The history of the cottage is extensive and rich. It was constructed in 1792 at the request of Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III, as a retreat for her and her daughters from the court.
The wealthy at the period built expansive mansions that looked like dreamy country cottages.
Tsar Nicholas II’s surviving relatives resided there as well after escaping to the UK in 1918 after the murder of other members of the family by the Bolsheviks.
Prior to Prince Harry and Meghan moving in, it is said that the cottage served as a residence for members of the royal household personnel since World War Two.
