Moving to sever the relationship with his son Harry and daughter-in-law Meghan Markle, King Charles III ordered the Windsor Estate cottage, which was gifted to Prince Harry and Meghan in 2018 as a wedding present from then-Queen Elizabeth II, be reassigned and given to Prince Andrew.
The king has not offered a substitute housing option to Harry and Meghan, who have put royal ties to the test with interviews, a Netflix docuseries and a tell-all memoir — all of which cast the royal family in England in a negative light.
The US Sun reported, “This [eviction] surely spells the end of Harry and Meghan’s time in the UK.”
Reportedly, King Charles began the eviction process a day after Prince Harry’s memoir “Spare” was released. Government officials are shipping Harry and Meghan’s personal belongings to their residence in the United States.
According to Page Six, Harry’s claims that Prince William physically assaulted the young prince and that then-Queen Consort Camilla leaked confidential family information to the press angered the king.
King Charles III is also unhappy with Prince Andrew, who has been embroiled in sex crime allegations and was relieved of his royal duties and titles by the late Queen Elizabeth in January 2022.
Moving Andrew into the five-bedroom Windsor Estate cottage would be a downgrade from his current residence — the 98-acre 30-bedroom Royal Lodge. Reportedly, Andrew is angry about the residence reassignment. The US Sun reported, “Andrew is resisting the idea of moving into Frogmore Cottage after he was offered it last week.”
The Sun also noted that “Harry and Meghan are powerless to stop the eviction.” The New York Post cited “Insiders” as saying the King has “completely written Harry out of the [upcoming coronation] ceremony.”
Speculation abounds regarding whether or not Buckingham Palace will extend an invitation to Harry and Meghan to share in King Charles’ coronation.
