King Charles III may be planning to evict his son Prince Harry — and his wife, American actress Meghan Markle — from Frogmore Cottage and give the residence to disgraced Prince Andrew.
According to a report published Wednesday by entertainment site Page Six, insiders have claimed that Charles actually began taking steps to evict the royal ex-pats the day after his son’s bombshell memoir “Spare” — which casts a decidedly ugly light on the British monarchy in general and on Charles directly — hit bookstores worldwide.
“This eviction surely spells the end of Harry and Meghan’s time in the UK,” a source told The U.S. Sun, according to a report the outlet published on Tuesday.
Harry and Markle officially left the U.K. for California after stepping away from their royal duties, but they still retained a residence at Frogmore Cottage. Sources told Page Six that they have arranged to have the last of their belongings shipped to the United States.
Frogmore Cottage — the Windsor home that was given to Harry and Meghan by the late Queen Elizabeth II in 2018 — won’t stand empty for long if Charles gets his way, the reports allege. It’s meant to be the new residence of Prince Andrew, the disgraced royal who was stripped of his titles and duties over ties to the late financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
But Andrew is reportedly resisting the move, namely because the five-bedroom “cottage” at Windsor is quite a step down from his current residence at the Royal Lodge — a massive, sprawling estate that boasts a 30-bedroom mansion in addition to a pool and nearly 100 acres of land.
“Andrew is resisting the idea of moving into Frogmore Cottage after he was offered it last week,” an unnamed source told The Sun.
The Duke of York has fallen out of favor in recent years over his ties to Epstein, and King Charles also just recently evicted him from his previous residence, a swanky apartment inside Buckingham Palace.

Entertainment Tonight noted in a report at the time that Andrew had already moved his primary residence from Buckingham Palace to the Royal Lodge at the time, but he had retained access to the rooms until Charles took action, barring him from both his apartment and his old office inside the palace.
