Andrew getting keys to Frogmore ‘not made clear to Harry and Meghan’, says pal

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly didn’t know about King Charles’ plan to move Prince Andrew into Frogmore Cottage after their eviction.

The decision to boot the Duke and Duchess from their UK residence was reportedly made shortly after the release of Harry’s new memoir Spare.

And while confirmation has been given by the California-based pair that they’ve been asked to leave, "they knew nothing" of the plan to move the disgraced Prince Andrew in instead.

Prince Andrew himself is reported to be “resisting” the move having been booted from his larger Royal Lodge mansion.

According to a quote from a friend of the couple in theTelegraph, the couple are not happy about the need to hand over the keys to their UK outpost and had “made that place their home”.

Inside the wider grounds of Windsor Castle, the couple are understood to have felt that Frogmore Cottage was the sole-surviving safe place for them and their children in the UK.

They renewed their lease on the property last March with it having been given to the couple by the late Queen in 2018.

The gaff used to be five separate apartments for staff working at the grounds, however, in 2019 it was converted into a single home to the tune of a sweet £2.4million out of the Sovereign Grant.

Reports claim the newly-renovated joint comes complete with five bedrooms, a kitchen, a sitting room and a nursery.

A spokesperson for the Sussexes said: “We can confirm The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been requested to vacate their residence at Frogmore Cottage."

The spokesperson said the couple was told the property was needed for “someone else”.

The news, matched with a renewed sense of damaged relations between the London and California royals, comes after anxiety over whether Harry and Meghan will receive an invite to the King’s coronation in May.
