Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Have Officially Moved Out of Frogmore Cottage

Buckingham Palace just released its annual Sovereign Grant report, and confirmed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially moved out of Frogmore Cottage. A palace official confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had "only just left" and recently packed up.

After their wedding, Harry and Meghan were gifted Frogmore Cottage by Queen Elizabeth, and refurbished the property through the Sovereign Grant. They have since repaid the entire cost.

Earlier this year, King Charles asked the Sussexes to move out, and a spokesperson for Prince Harry and Meghan confirmed that "the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been requested to vacate their residence at Frogmore Cottage." There was speculation that King Charles wants his brother, Prince Andrew, to move in to Frogmore—thus moving him out of Royal Lodge at Windsor.

Previously, when Harry and Meghan stepped down as senior working royals, it was shared that they would keep Frogmore Cottage as a UK residence "so that their family will always have a place to call home in the United Kingdom." At the time, Buckingham Palace, too, said Frogmore Cottage "will remain their UK family home."

In June 2022, Prince Harry and Meghan, along with their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, returned to the UK for Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee and stayed at Frogmore Cottage. While there, they had a first birthday party for Lili, and Meghan packed up many of their belongings.

When Prince Harry was in the UK to attend preliminary hearings for his phone hacking lawsuit in March 2023, he reportedly stayed at Frogmore Cottage. The Telegraph reported, that he possibly "used the visit to sort out the couple’s belongings and work out what needs to be shipped to the US ahead of vacating the property."

Now, it seems as if Montecito, California is their full time (and only) residence.

Frogmore was the last attachment that Archie and Lili had to the UK.

Now there's no reason for them to ever return there.

At least they can both say they visited the UK once.

Now William and Kate can move in, because they're not getting Royal Lodge.

Harry had been bumped down the list for Counselor of State but now he’s officially off it—no UK residence.

He's backing himself into a corner. Wake up Harry.

Or he can stay with his father, James Hewitt.

God, the Hewitt stuff is so tired.

Glad he no longer qualifies as a CoS, but will he launch legal action over losing it?

I can't remember exactly how it went, but some poster went to the trouble of creating a little ditty about living in Froggy Holler, sort of like "A Coalminers Daughter". It was a hoot and showed that even why DL is still worth reading.

I recall posters at the time saying the Harkles would never stoop to living in Frogmore and I always thought eventually they'd come to their senses, settle down & live their for some time until they got an upgrade from King Chuck. Well, clearly that was wrong & their last tie to the UK is gone. It's hard to tell where these two go next

She's going to want to live in Bel Air or Malibu, but will probably settle in Calabasas.
