Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have officially vacated Frogmore Cottage years after leaving their senior roles within the royal family.

Harry, 38, and Markle, 41, were asked to vacate the royal abode so that Prince Andrew could reportedly move in. Frogmore Cottage, on the grounds of Windsor Castle west of London, had been intended as the couple’s main residence before they gave up royal duties and moved to Southern California.

The news of the cottage’s vacancy was confirmed in the palace’s annual Sovereign Grant report released Thursday.

The couple lived in Frogmore Cottage during their time as working royals. The cottage was renovated for $3.2 million, which Harry and Markle repaid in full shortly after finalizing their blockbuster Netflix deal in 2020.

After they left Britain, Prince Harry and Markle said Frogmore Cottage would remain their base when they visited the U.K.

It’s unclear where the couple would stay if they were to visit the U.K. now. Prince Harry previously traveled to London in May, without Markle, for his father King Charles’ coronation. He also made a trip across the pond in June, from their home in California, to take the stand at London’s High Court for his lawsuit against the publisher of the Daily Mirror.
