In a move that appears to signal a deepening rift with the royal family ahead of King Charles III’s coronation, Prince Harry and Meghan have been asked to vacate Frogmore Cottage.

Their former primary residence in Britain is located on the western grounds of Windsor Castle. The Sun newspaper has reported that the eviction process was initiated by Charles on January 11, following the publication of Harry’s revealing memoir titled Spare

Prince Harry’s decision to step down from his royal duties and move to the United States with his wife, Meghan Markle, has already strained his relationship with the royal family. To then factor in his decision to write a memoir might be seen as a breach of privacy by the royal family, further damaging his relationship with them. The British monarchy is known for maintaining a strict code of conduct and discretion. 

Spare might have left the duke in the bad graces of King Charles; however, without any official statements from the royal family, it is impossible to know the exact reason for the eviction.

Frogmore Cottage was originally intended to serve as the couple’s main residence before they relinquished their royal duties and relocated to Southern California.

“We can confirm the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been requested to vacate their residence at Frogmore Cottage,” a spokesperson for the couple stated.
