The Couple Currently Resides at California, Meghan’s Home State
Meghan and Harry caused a global sensation in January when they declared openly their plan to step down as senior members of the Royal Family. The couple are presently residing in California, Meghan’s home state.
According to The Sun, Eugenie and Jack shifted into Frogmore Cottage, near Windsor, about two weeks ago.
Speaking to the paper a source they said: “Removal vans pitched up in the dead of the night and cleared out the cottage
They definitely did not want to be seen,”.
Frogmore Cottage was a gift by The Queen
“Unloading their home and handing over the keys is a pretty strong sign Harry and Meghan have no plans to return.
It appears they are tying up loose ends as they plan to extend their stay in the US maybe permanently.” Harry and Meghan were given Frogmore Cottage as a gift by The Queen in April 2018 soon before their wedding. The estate was then extensively furnished under the intention it would become their main home.
However in January the Duke and Duchess confirmed their plan to quit royal service and become “financially independent” whilst dividing their time between North America and Britain.
Subsequent meetings with senior royals Harry and Meghan decided to pay off the taxpayer money that had been spent renovating Frogmore Cottage.
Princess Eugenie is Pregnant with the Couple’s First Child
It was substantiated the payment had been made in September, immediately after their mega deal with streaming giant Netflix was announced.
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, a wine merchant, were married on October 12 2018.
This September it was declared Eugenie is pregnant with the couple’s first child, which is due in early 2021. Speaking to The Sun, a source said the estate would be favorable for Eugenie and Jack to put forward a family in.
They commented: “Frogmore was kitted out to Meghan and Harry’s tastes with son Archie in mind, so it is the excellent place for a couple to bring up a baby.
It has the bonus of being around the corner from her parents and, of course, the Queen.
Harry and Meghan didn’t fancy Frogmore for whatever reason but Jack and Eugenie are delighted with it.”
Meghan and Harry Will Conserve Legal Ownership
It is appreciated the move followed a private agreement between Princess Eugenie and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
However it is believed Meghan and Harry will conserve legal ownership of the estate.
Buckingham Palace chose not to remark on the precise financial configuration.
In August it was disclosed Meghan and Harry had acquired a new £11.2million home in Santa Barbara, to the north of Los Angeles.
The property reportedly comes complete with a tennis court, swimming pool and children’s cottage.
A number of other celebrities, such as Oprah Winfrey and Gwyneth Paltrow, also live in that area.
