Princess Eugenie and husband ‘living at Frogmore Cottage’

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have reportedly moved into Frogmore Cottage, the Grade II listed home of Meghan and Harry.

It is understood the Sussexes will retain the residence near Windsor Castle but Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank, who married in 2018, will share the property.

The property underwent major work to turn five properties back into a single home for the duke, duchess and their baby son Archie – with all fittings and fixtures privately paid for by the couple.

Meghan and Harry quit as senior working royals in March, repaying the £2.4 million of taxpayers' money spent on the cottage which was a present from Harry's grandmother the Queen.

The couple were able to afford the repayment after signing a lucrative Netflix deal rumoured to be worth more than £100 million and currently pay commercial rent on the Berkshire property.

Since stepping down as a senior royal, the duchess has already started her life in the commercial world, narrating a Disney film about a family of elephants and their journey across Africa that was available to stream in April.

The couple also established charitable organisation Archewell in October, replacing their SussexRoyal Foundation which has been formally wound up.

They have been working on the foundation, which is expected to champion issues they support including racial justice, gender equity, climate change, mental health and online hate speech.

Meanwhile, the reported new tenants of Frogmore Cottage, announced they were expecting their first child in September, a few weeks before their second wedding anniversary.

The baby will be a ninth great-grandchild for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, following the arrival of their eighth – the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

But although their mother is a princess, their father has no title and so the child will be born down a female line of the royal family – meaning they will be plain Master or Miss Brooksbank.

They will not be an HRH nor hold a title, unless the Queen decides to intervene and give Mr Brooksbank – who is European brand manager for Casamigos Tequila co-founded by George Clooney – an earldom or issue a Letters Patent amending the rules.

Eugenie's parents, Andrew and Sarah, will become grandparents for the first time and the baby boy or girl will be born 11th in line to the throne.
