Princess Eugenie, 30, and Jack Brooksbank, 34, have moved into Frogmore Cottage while Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are in LA. Royal expert Omid Scobie said the property is “on loan” and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex plan to stay at their UK home when they return. But royal commentators Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie believe Eugenie is staying there rent-free.

Speaking on Royally Obsessed, Ms Fiorito said: “It feels weird to me because they only just paid it off.”

Ms Bowie added: “I know but on the flip side if it is vacant, wouldn’t you rather have someone looking after it?

“I don’t think that they’re paying rent which is interesting.

“I’ve seen a couple of reports of that.

“I think where it seems logical for me, the pandemic must have thrown such a wrench into things.

“Especially when you’re about to welcome a baby.

“Originally they were at Kensington Palace but I think logistically this all seems a smart a decision as we all relocate during this pandemic.”

Ms Fiorito added: “I agree and Frogmore Cottage is really big.

“If they are staying in one part of the house and Harry and Meghan come back from California and want to stay, I’m sure there is a wing of rooms for them.”

ITV Royal Rota hosts Chris Ship and Lizzie Robinson have also discussed whether Meghan Markle and Harry could even be loaning the cottage for free.

Mr Ship said: “The thing we don’t know about this is quite how the financial arrangements are between Eugenie and Jack and Harry and Meghan.

“It could be ‘have it on us’ because we’ve got this nice big Netflix deal.

“Or it could be ‘please pay us whatever pounds per month’.

“So this arrangement is going to be quite interesting.”

According to sources in their office, the Sussexes had planned to return to the UK soon after their April departure.

However, their plans were delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
