Business News/ News / World/  Prince Harry, Meghan asked to vacate UK cottage, but King Charles may let them stay in…

Days after being asked to vacate their royal home in UK, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly been invited to attend King Charles III's landmark coronation. While it remains unclear whether the duo will attend the grand event in May, questions about where they might stay have already risen. 

According to a recent report, the two may be offered a Buckingham Palace suite if and when they visit the UK. A report by the Mirror suggested that the palace apartment would most likely be Prince Andrew's old suite. 

Local media reports indicate Frogmore Cottage has now been offered to Prince Andrew - King Charles III's disgraced brother. The residence had been gifted to the couple by Harry's late grandmother – Queen Elizabeth II - and renovated by the duo. It was intended to be a permanent base in the UK once they relocated to the US after stepping back as frontline royals.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex refurbished it in 2018 at a cost of GBP 2.4 million - initially covered by British taxpayer money and later paid back. They had also spent their daughter Lilibet's first birthday at the property during a visit to the UK for the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022.

According to reports, the couple were asked to vacate the cottage in January – soon after the publication of ‘Spare’. The move was reportedly sanctioned by King Charles.

Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan's attendance at the upcoming coronation continues to remain unclear. 

"I can confirm The Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty's office regarding the coronation. An immediate decision on whether The Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time," a spokesperson for Harry said.
