Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank 'leave Frogmore Cottage' after six weeks

Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank have reportedly left Frogmore Cottage, just six weeks after moving in.

The couple are said to have quit the five-bedroom luxury cottage loaned to them by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to ‘start their own family’.

Eugenie, 30, and Jack, 34, moved into the historic Grade II listed property, close to Windsor Castle, in November, after the Duke of Sussex handed over the keys in a ‘private agreement’.

But now Frogmore Cottage is thought to be empty and Eugenie and Jack are believed to have returned to Kensington Palace.

The Princess, daughter of Prince Andrew, was spotted shopping in Kensington, west London, around 10 days ago.  

But it has not been ruled out she and Jack will return after Christmas, reports suggest.

The parents-to-be, who are expecting their first child in the new year, wed at St George’s Chapel in Windsor in October 2018.

They were said to be ‘delighted’ with Frogmore Cottage when they moved in.

But an insider reportedly told the Sun: ‘It is empty again. Why does no one want to live in Frogmore Cottage? What is wrong with the place?’

Harry and Meghan repaid the £2.4million spent by taxpayers to refurbish Frogmore Cottage after they quit as senior working royals in March this year.

The couple now live in an £11million mansion in California but will stay in the Berkshire cottage whenever they return to the UK.

They were initially hoping to pay off the costs of renovating the home in instalments.

But the Sussexes were able to clear the full amount after signing a deal with Netflix for £112million.

Frogmore Cottage, built in 1801, was intended to be Harry and Meghan’s main residence after they tied the knot in 2018.

It needed a substantial amount of work to get it ready before the birth of the couple’s son, Archie, now 16-months old.

The extensive renovations are thought to have included a designer kitchen and £50,000 eco-friendly boiler.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment when approached.
