Grandmother-to-be Sarah Ferguson welcomes Princess Eugenie and Jack into family home

Princess Eugenie’s Frogmore situation discussed by experts

Eugenie, who is expecting her first child early this year, and Mr Brooksbank were loaned the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Windsor home. They are thought to have moved into Frogmore Cottage in mid-November but had already left the property just six weeks later.

Eugenie and her husband spent Christmas at Royal Lodge with her parents the Duke and Duchess of York and are likely to remain there for now, according to royal author Omid Scobie.

Speaking on The HeirPod podcast, royal correspondent Maggie Rulli said: “We saw something in the news a few weeks ago about how Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank had moved into Frogmore Cottage.

“Harry and Meghan had opened the doors to the home to the couple and then mysteriously there was a report that said they had moved out.

“And no one really knew exactly where they were.”

Mr Scobie said Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank stayed at Royal Lodge with Sarah and Andrew for the festive period.

He added: “So I imagine that’s probably where they will remain up until much later in the year.”

The Duke and Duchess of York divorced in 1996 but they have remained very close over the years.

Sarah is soon to become a grandmother for the first time, with Eugenie due to give birth early this year.

Her pregnancy was announced by Buckingham Palace last September. 

A statement said: “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in early 2021.

“The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news.”

In a post on her social media accounts at the time, Sarah said she “cannot wait to be a grandmother”.

She said: “I am so excited by the news that Eugenie and Jack are expecting their first child.

“Thrilled for them both and in my 60th year cannot wait to be a grandmother.

“Welcoming a new baby into the York family is going to be a moment of profound joy.”

Meghan and Harry spent £2.4 million of taxpayers’ money renovating Frogmore Cottage.

But they have since paid the money back and are now living in a mansion in California with their son Archie.

The Sussexes were said to be “delighted” to “open up their home” to Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank.

Speaking in December after Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank had moved out of the residence, a source told the Sun: “It is empty again.

“Why does no one want to live in Frogmore Cottage? What is wrong with the place?”
