Princess Eugenie, her husband Jack Brooksbank, and their son August, had been living at Frogmore Cottage since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry (who lease the home!) left the United Kingdom. But, apparently, Eugenie and Jack quietly relocated this past summer, choosing Nottingham Cottage as their new royal residence. (FYI, they’re also spending part of their time in Portugal for Jack’s job.)
Nottingham Cottage (an ultra-cozy two bedroom) is situated on the Kensington Palace grounds, and also has a connection to the Sussexes. In fact, it’s where Harry lived while he and Meghan were dating, and where he proposed. Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton also briefly lived in Nottingham Cottage with bb Prince George while their palace apartment was being renovated.
Princess Eugenie’s move comes after her family’s initial plan to relocate from Frogmore Cottage to Adelaide Cottage was dashed. You know, thanks to the fact that Prince William and Kate Middleton moved into Adelaide Cottageinstead, which, apparently, lead to some tension between the families.
The Daily Mail spoke to sources “close to the Yorks” at the time, who said Princess Eugenie had “been trying to secure” Adelaide Cottage “for when she moves out of Frogmore.” They also added that “before Andrew’s most recent scandal, it was definitely a property he was [also] trying to secure for his daughter.”
Prior to the Cambridges moving in, the Daily Mail noted that there was “no doubt” they’d get the home due to Prince William being heir to the throne…which they did!ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
