Meghan and Prince Harry ‘are OK about leaving Frogmore Cottage and say “if we need to move out, we will get ourselves out”‘, source says
Prince Harry and Meghan are ‘ok’ about leaving Frogmore Cottage following Buckingham Palace’s eviction notice, it has been reported.
The Duke and Duchess are not as ‘stunned’ about leaving as previous reports have suggested, believing that ‘if we need to move out, we will get ourselves out’, according to The Times.
The couple were allegedly given ‘weeks’ to pack up their British home after Harry’s memoir Spare hit the shelves in January.
Earlier this week, journalist Omid Scobie claimed that some members of the Royal Family were ‘appalled’ by the decision to evict Harry and Meghan, with the couple also said to have felt ‘stunned’.
An insider allegedly told him: ‘It all feels very final and like a cruel punishment. It’s like [the family] want to cut them out of the picture for good.

‘Harry and Meghan have until early summer to vacate. Initially they were given just weeks, but now they have at least until after the coronation.’
Yet, another source told The Times that the couple were actually ‘ok’ with the decision and had an approach of ‘it is what it is’.
The couple were allegedly given ‘weeks’ to pack up their British home after Harry released his memoir Spare in January
Meghan and Harry were said to have acknowledged ‘they were very privileged’ to have a home in the UK and in the US, but accepted it was ‘not going to work for them’.
‘The most alarming thing was that it was a gift from Her Majesty the Queen, and now it is no longer that. But it’s OK,’ the source told them.
Just this week, The Sun also reported that the five-bedroom property has been offered to Prince Andrew who, as of now, lives at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park.
But he is allegedly ‘resisting’ the offer – wanting to stay in his larger Windsor Royal Lodge where he pays a reported £250-a-week for a state-subsidised 30-room mansion complete with 98 acres of land and a swimming pool.
The revelation comes as preparations are taking place for King Charles’ Coronation in May amid speculation that Prince Harry may not receive an invitation.
The Sussexes have stayed at Frogmore Cottage only a few times since leaving the UK three years ago – attending last summer’s Platinum Jubilee, charity engagements and after the Queen’s death.
