Eugenie’s farewell to Frogmore… for now: Princess, her husband and their baby son make space for Harry and Meghan’s Jubilee return
- The Princess, her husband and their son have left Frogmore for the Jubilee
- They were allowed to stay in the cottage owned by the Sussexes since 2020
- But now Harry and Meghan are back, they have moved out for their stay
Princess Eugenie and her family have vacated Frogmore Cottage ahead of the arrival of Harry and Meghan for the Queen’s celebration, it was reported last night.
Eugenie, her husband Jack Brooksbank and their one-year-old son August have lived at the property since November 2020.
The family have been allowed the use of the five-bedroom house by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex while they live in California.
And Eugenie has made it her home, having recently redecorated the cottage to suit her own style.
The Brooksbanks have now packed up and moved out for Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and their two children, Archie and Lilibet

But the Brooksbanks have now packed up and moved out for Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and their two children, Archie and Lilibet, according to the Sunday Times.
It is thought the move will last for the duration of Harry and Meghan’s stay for the Jubilee weekend as Frogmore Cottage is still the couple’s official residence in the UK.
The Brooksbanks are likely to have moved in with family.
Frogmore was converted into one home in 2019 for Harry and Meghan, having previously been five separate properties for staff working on the Windsor Estate.
The whole renovation famously cost the Sovereign Grant £2.4million.
The family home is thought to have five bedrooms, a kitchen, a sitting room and a nursery first designed for Archie.
Eugenie has previously shared glimpses of her interior redesign on Instagram. One photo of Mr Brooksbank asleep with August on his chest showed a neutral room with a white linen sofa, beige panelled walls and bohemian cream and black scatter cushions.
Eugenie has also been pictured sitting on a cream sofa in front of a blue painted bookshelf in another room. This time there was far more colour with red, fluffy trimmed cushions and a small green cushion with the personalised embroidery ‘August born in February’.
Other photos posted have shown a kitchen with white painted cabinets and a white tiled floor.

The Queen has extended an olive branch to Harry and Meghan, who will join the royal family to celebrate the monarch’s historic Platinum Jubilee during the national Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday.
As revealed by the Daily Mail on Saturday, it is understood that the Sussexes are likely to attend at least one other public engagement – although sources have warned that the public should ‘not expect them at every event’.
Sources say the 96-year-old monarch is ‘looking forward’ to seeing her great-grandchildren, Archie and Lilibet.
The Queen is likely to spend time with the family privately on Saturday, when Lilibet celebrates her first birthday.
