In a pivotal move that marks a significant step in their separation from the UK, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have cleared out Frogmore Cottage and returned the keys.

This royal residence, which served as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s base in England, was requested to be vacated by King Charles at the earliest opportunity.

Just days before the deadline, the couple had their remaining possessions shipped to their California mansion, signifying that they will no longer have a home base in the UK.

Reliance on Temporary Accommodation in England

With the departure from Frogmore Cottage, Meghan and Harry will likely have to rely on hotels or the generosity of friends when they travel to England.

This shift highlights the significant change in their living arrangements and the adjustment they will face while visiting the country.

A Brief Stay at Frogmore Cottage

Frogmore Cottage was initially gifted to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as a wedding present by Queen Elizabeth II in 2018.

However, Meghan and Harry have spent minimal time residing in this royal abode over the past three years.

Despite the brevity of their stay, the property holds symbolic value as their first official residence in the UK.

Negotiations and Delayed Departure

Initially, the Sussexes were given a few weeks to pack up their belongings and leave their UK home.

However, after negotiations, an agreement was reached to extend their departure until after the Coronation.

The Timing and Speculation

The timing of the request for the Sussexes to vacate Frogmore Cottage, just one day after the release of the Duke of Sussex’s autobiography, raised eyebrows and sparked speculation.

It led to discussions about the potential connection between the decision and the content of the book, adding further intrigue to the circumstances surrounding their departure.

There has been speculation that King Charles might ask Prince Andrew to move out of the Royal Lodge and into Frogmore Cottage.

This suggestion arose amidst discussions about the need to streamline the royal portfolio of properties.

According to royal biographer Tom Bower, Frogmore Cottage would be a “cold shower” for Prince Andrew, implying that it would be a significant adjustment for him to downsize his living arrangements.

Bower further noted that Prince Andrew must come to terms with his fate and recognize the necessity of adapting to a different lifestyle.

The potential relocation to Frogmore Cottage signifies a shift in the dynamics of royal residences and underscores the need for adjustments within the royal family.
