King Charles III’s decision to evict Meghan Markle and Prince Harry from Frogmore Cottage has sparked a civil war between working and non-working members of the Royal Family, including Yorks and Waleses, it is claimed.
Non-working royals, such as Prince Andrew and his two daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, are said to feel “appalled” over the King’s recent decision.
Despite this, the King is understood to be backed by his wife, the Queen Consort and the Prince and Princess of Wales.
An insider said: “There is now a clear dividing line between the working members of the Royal Family and the non-working members like the Yorks and Sussexes.”
On Wednesday evening, a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed the news of the eviction.
The statement read: “We can confirm The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been requested to vacate their residence at Frogmore Cottage.”
Blow for Charles as Andrew resisting Frogmore Cottage move and will fight to stay in home
Prince Andrew is reportedly “resisting” the move to Frogmore Cottage as he doesn’t want to downsize, a royal insider has claimed.
The decision comes after it emerged that the King wants to evict Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the 10-bedroom home in Windsor that they have owned since their wedding in 2018.
The Duke of York is tipped to move into the home instead.
The couple, who are now based in the US, are said to be “stunned” after getting notice to move their belongings out.
After promising that he would not leave his brother penniless or homeless, Charles is offering Frogmore Cottage to Prince Andrew.
Prince Andrew currently lives at Royal Lodge, with his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson and he wants to remain there.
Taking to Twitter, royal correspondent Richard Palmer claimed that the 63-year-old will “fight tooth and nail to stay at Royal Lodge”.
Harry and Meghan were gifted Frogmore Cottage by the late Queen, and despite stepping down and moving to the US, the couple kept the residence and have used it as their base when they have returned for visits.
In June 2022, the couple stayed at the 10-bed home with their two children, whilst visiting the UK for the Platinum Jubilee.
Speaking on Sky News on Wednesday, Newsweek’s chief royal correspondent Jack Royston said that the eviction could mean that the couple may feel unsafe “even stepping into Britian at all.”
He added that Frogmore was more than “simply a place to lay your hat”, the couple “had the protection of the police who guard the private estate there”.
On Wednesday, Meghan and Harry’s unofficial biographer Omid Scobie quoted a close friend of the couple.
He said: “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.”
Just curious to know this; is there really a need for kings, queens, princes, princesses, dukes and duchesses in the modern world? I mean all this blather is nothing but tabloid fodder. As British ‘royals’ have no real power over anything, are a tremendous financial burden on their ‘loyal subjects’, what are their real functions? I love the British people and their nation but these ongoing clown shows are a sad testament to the great nation that is England. IMHO
THE ROYALS ARE SO PAMPERED THEY HAVE NO FEELINGS WHATSOEVER OF FAMILY LIVES…..DIANA WAS THE ONLY THING GOOD THAT LIVED THERE….SHE LOVED HER BOYS AND DID MANY THINGS TO ENRICH THEIR LIVES…..THEN THE EVIL ONE TOOK OVER AFTER SHE PASSED AWAY…..
