Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Frogmore Eviction Reportedly Deemed ‘Not Good Look’ For Palace
A royal expert is sharing some thoughts about the Palace’s recent move, requesting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to vacate their home in the United Kingdom, Frogmore Cottage.
Kinsey Schofield claimed that the decision could result in a significant PR headache for King Charles III, noting that it is “not a good look” for the Palace, according to Express UK.
It reportedly comes as there have been claims about the British Monarch planning to move Prince Andrew to the Windsor residence from the Royal Lodge.
Speaking to the publication, the royal expert explained, “You’re going to kick Harry out, the son of the King, who has been so open about his mental health issues and feeling excluded from the family and going to move in the brother of the King who has brought nothing but shame over the last few years?,” before saying, “It’s not a good look.”
While Schofield noted in the same exchange that the Palace has yet to confirm the matter involving the Duke of York, she said, “I would say within the royal commentator chat, when this story dropped, we were all going, ‘this is not a good look for the Palace.’”
Earlier last week, news broke that King Charles III is evicting Meghan Markle and Prince Harry from their U.K. residence at Frogmore Cottage.
The Sun, which published the story on February 28, reported that the British Monarch began the eviction process days after the release of his youngest son’s memoir, “Spare.”
The King has also allegedly offered the estate to Prince Andrew, but is said to be “resisting.”
Following the report, a spokesperson for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Archewell Foundation spoke to People and confirmed the matter, saying, “We can confirm The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been requested to vacate their residence at Frogmore Cottage.”
Meanwhile, it remains unconfirmed, though, whether King Charles III has indeed offered the Windsor residence to the Duke of York.
Despite this, though, Kinsey Schofield shared elsewhere in the exchange with Express UK, published Saturday, that “financially and logistically, this is a solution to a problem that exists,” noting that "there is an empty newly renovated house" on the grounds of Windsor as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry no longer reside in the United Kingdom.
The “To Di For Daily” podcast host explained to the publication that the Royal Lodge, where Prince Andrew currently resides, “is excruciatingly expensive,” adding that he is no longer in a position right now to afford the property's "maintenance and upkeep."
The royal expert continued that the King’s brother is no longer a working royal, so he “really has to live within his means” and “change lifestyle," before reiterating, “and because of that this was just logistically a solution to a problem."
