The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were asked to vacate their UK home after the publication of Harry’s memoir Spare.
Princess Eugenie visits the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital
A source told OK! Magazine that Harry “couldn’t be happier” for his cousin, who he is known to be close to.
Mr Brooksbank has been offered a promotion at the US-based firm Discovery Land Company, which means he will be spending more time in the US.
But according to the insider, Eugenie, who is mother to two-year-old August and is expecting the couple’s second child, is “determined to have the baby in the UK and bring up her children in England”.
It is thought whenever the couple are in the US they will stay with Harry and Meghan at their home in Montecito, California.
Meghan Markle wanted ‘freedom’ for her children and sought to escape ‘silly’ royal rules
Meghan Markle hated “silly” royal protocols and wanted her children to grow up with “American freedom”, according to a staff member at Kensington Palace.
The Duchess of Sussex struggled to adhere to the rules after she married Prince Harry, as detailed in Tom Quinn’s new book Gilded Youth: An Intimate History of Growing Up in the Royal Family, which was informed by the staff member and one of Meghan’s former royal advisors.
The source said: “The Sussexes are disappointed by the move but couldn’t be happier that Eugenie and Jack will take it over.
“They have been staying there on and off for the past few years anyway.
“They went to see Harry and Meghan last month in California. They took over some small personal belongings left in the property. They were also helping to box up items at Frogmore to be shipped over to California.
The Duke of York had been tipped to move into the Windsor home as part of King Charles’s move to make some savings in the royal budget.
Andrew’s annual grant of £249,000 is to be cut from April, which may leave him struggling to afford the upkeep on his current home Royal Lodge.
Meghan and Harry were told to leave Frogmore in January, the day after Harry’s autobiography Spare was published, which heavily criticised the Royal Family.
It remains to be seen whether Harry and Meghan will travel back to the UK for the King’s Coronation in May – but the couple have confirmed they have received an official invite.
There are concerns about where they will stay if they are unable to be housed on a royal estate.
However, the pair are said to have been offered Prince Andrew’s old apartments in Buckingham Palace as a gesture of good will from Charles.
