Prince Harry has always been pretty close to the York sisters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice. Eugenie and Harry are so close that she used to set him up with her friends, and she was one of the first people in the family to meet Meghan when H&M first began dating. So now that Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are expecting, it’s not surprising that Harry is doing his cousin a really nice favor. What *does* surprise me is that the Queen didn’t “give” Eugenie and Jack a royal property as a wedding/baby gift. So it’s left to Harry to make a generous donation: he’s lending them Frogmore Cottage in what seems like an open-ended lease. This is the same Frogmore Cottage which the Queen gifted to the Sussexes and everyone freaked out over how much money it cost to renovate, so H&M “paid back” the cost of the renovations. Harry and Meghan aren’t coming back to England any time soon (LOL) so now Eugenie and Jack live there.
Harry and Meghan have handed the keys to Frogmore Cottage to Princess Eugenie. The Sussexes’ prized possessions were hauled out of Frogmore Cottage in the dead of night to make way for their new tenant. Pregnant Eugenie, 30, and hubby Jack Brooksbank moved into the refurbished five-bed home in Windsor two weeks ago.
The secretive switch saw treasured items and furniture packed off to the Sussexes’ home in California. Grade II-listed Frogmore technically remains the Sussexes’ UK residence but it is unlikely they will live there as a family again.
A source said: “Removal vans pitched up in the dead of the night and cleared out the cottage. They definitely did not want to be seen. Emptying 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 perhaps permanently.”
The Princess and the Sussexes are said to have reached a private agreement but it is not known how long for. Harry, 36, has always been close to his cousin, youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson. Andrew and Fergie live together four miles away at Royal Lodge, Windsor Great Park. Eugenie and Jack are also less than a mile from Windsor Castle, where the Queen is spending …
