Why Princess Eugenie’s Lastest Move May Prove Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Never Returning to the Royal Family
Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, have just made a big move. In preparation for the birth of their first child, the couple has moved to a new home that is just around the corner from her parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. But the location may prove that Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex are never returning to the royal family.
Princess Eugenie shared the first glimpse of her baby bump during charity event
According to Express, the first time royal fans got a glimpse of Princess Eugenie’s baby bump was at an October charity event. Eugenie debuted her bump in a series of photographs that the Anti-Slavery Collective shared on their Instagram account.
In 2017, Eugenie and her friend Julia de Boinville founded the charity that focuses on modern slavery after a trip to Kolkata, India. They became aware of the issue after visiting an organization called Women’s Interlink Foundation.
In the first photo, Eugenie is alongside de Boinville while they are wearing matching face masks. The second and third pics showed the duo speaking with trafficking victims.
“In honour of #AntiSlaveryDay, earlier this week our co-founders HRH Princess Eugenie and Julia de Boinville visited a @salvationarmyuk safe house for a socially distanced visit with modern slavery survivors and staff members,” the caption read.
Eugenie and de Boinville are hoping to educate people about modern day slavery through their charity. They are also enlisting policy makers, journalists, and companies to participate in the cause.
Queen Elizabeth’s ninth great-grandchild is due in ‘early 2021’
Eugenie and Jack announced they were expecting via Instagram with a pic of the parents-to-be holding a pair of baby bear slippers.
“Jack and I are so excited for early 2021….👶🏻,” Eugenie wrote in the caption.
Eugenie and Jack’s baby will be Queen Elizabeth’s ninth great-grandchild, and the couple will be raising the baby on the grounds of Windsor Castle. Her Majesty is currently living at Windsor instead of at Buckingham Palace in London amid the pandemic.
According to The Sun, Eugenie and Jack moved into Frogmore Cottage – just one mile from Windsor Castle – in early November. As royal fans know, this is the residence that Queen Elizabeth gifted to Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
Harry and Meghan moved to California earlier this year after stepping down as senior working members of the royal family. However, Frogmore Cottage remains their official UK residence.
The home is an ideal location for Eugenie, as it’s just four miles from her parents’ home at Royal Lodge, Windsor Great Park.
“Frogmore was kitted out to Meghan and Harry’s tastes with son Archie in mind, so it is the perfect place for a couple to bring up a baby,” an insider explained. “It has the bonus of being around the corner from her parents and, of course, the Queen. Harry and Meghan didn’t fancy Frogmore for whatever reason but Jack and Eugenie are delighted with it.”
Princess Eugenie’s move could mean Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are done with the royal family
After Eugenie and Jack moved into the remodeled five-bedroom home, moving trucks showed up in “the dead of night” to clear out Harry and Meghan’s belongings. According to Express, this could be a sign that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no intention of ever returning to the royal family.
“Removal vans pitched up in the dead of the night and cleared out the cottage. They definitely did not want to be seen,” an insider dished.
“Emptying their home and handing over the keys is a pretty strong sign Harry and Meghan have no plans to return. It appears they are tying up loose ends as they plan to extend their stay in the US perhaps permanently.”
Princess Eugenie has reportedly made a private agreement with Harry and Meghan, but it’s not known for how long. The Sussexes are scheduled to have a one-year Megxit review in the spring of 2021 to evaluate their break from the royal family.
Meanwhile, Eugenie, an associate art director, and Jack, a brand ambassador for Casamigos tequila, are understood to be working from their new home amid the pandemic.
