According to media reports, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are losing their British second home Frogmore Cottage on the grounds of Windsor Castle three years after moving to California. As the "Sun" and the "Daily Telegraph" reported on Wednesday, King Charles III. offered the property as a new home to his brother Prince Andrew, who had fallen out of favor with allegations of abuse.
The late Queen Elizabeth II had given the country house to Harry and Meghan for their wedding. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent £2.4million (€2.7million) converting it to suit their needs. In 2020, they officially retired from their royal duties and moved to California. According to newspaper reports, in January - a few days after the publication of Prince Harry's much-acclaimed autobiography - they were asked to finally vacate Frogmore Cottage.
Harry's father Charles III, who has long wanted to slim down the royal family, ordered a cash collapse after his accession to the throne in September. He is reportedly looking to ditch Prince Andrew's £250,000 annual appanage. In this case, Andrew can no longer afford the high maintenance costs for his current residence, the very spacious 30-room Royal Lodge in Windsor, write "Sun" and "Daily Telegraph". As a replacement, Charles III. offered him Frogmore Cottage.
Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the reports. A spokesman for Harry and Meghan was initially unavailable for comment.
