Frogmore Cottage

Seems that Princess Eugenie and her husband have moved into Frogmore Cottage, apparently at the invitation of the Sussexes.

If they, H&M and Archie, pop back to GB, they will share the place.

Good to think it will be in use by a family, when Eugenie’s baby arrives.

That's what families do, isn't it? Help one another smile

Getting in the popcorn 🙄

Ellianne Sat 21-Nov-20 08:10:22

Seems sensible to me.

M0nica Sat 21-Nov-20 08:34:16

Agree Ellianne

Brilliant idea, good to see a family home with a family living in it.

at the invitation of the Sussexes
Who owns it? Isn't it The Crown Estate?
Have Harry and Meghan paid rent upfront?

suziewoozie Sat 21-Nov-20 10:22:23

And they’re off <munch munch!🙄

I just wanted to stop you being bored.

It isn’t Meg’s and Harry to give to anyone

I thought the Queen had given it to Harry and Meghan? Perhaps not.

Don’t read it if it annoys you SW.

Makes a change from the endless Games threads.

Ellianne Sat 21-Nov-20 10:40:39

I think it spells out that Harry and Meghan won't be back to live.

Doesn’t annoy me, it amuses me at the predictability of it all .🙄

Nice to see you happy suziewoozie . I agree with Ellianne, I too think that this indicates that H&M have no intentions of returning to the UK long term. I'm glad that the house will be used by a family, rather than leaving it empty.

MrsThreadgoode Sat 21-Nov-20 10:49:22

I think it’s lovely, I expect their spare room will soon be filled with stuff that doesn’t have a rightful place ( like the rest of us) and when H and M come over they will soon get it cleared out and they can squeeze an inflatable bed in there, (just like the rest of us!)
I can imagine cosy chats in the evenings, maybe with a take away or H doing his roast chicken and then watching Suits on the telly............I expect H and M will visit frequently. Don’t you?

suziewoozie Sat 21-Nov-20 10:52:30

I didn’t say I was happy Chew I said I was amused. It would t take more than a silly thread on GN to make me happy.🙄

Kalu Sat 21-Nov-20 10:56:34

Considering the expense of making it habitable for Harry and Meghan, then lying empty, I’m sure Eugénie and her little family will enjoy living there.

Chewbacca Sat 21-Nov-20 11:00:15

Sorry suziewoozie, my optimism got the better of me. grin

merlotgran Sat 21-Nov-20 12:37:54

I think it's a great idea. I hated the thought of a lovely home standing empty and it'll be convenient for Fergie when she pops round to baby sit.

Another empty cottage in KP now as well as the huge apartment H&M didn't want. hmm

Namsnanny Sat 21-Nov-20 12:47:19

I agree with Ellianne that it is an indication they have no intention on coming back any time soon!
I do feel sorry for Archie if he dosnt get to see his relatives much one this side of the pond.

Jane10 Sat 21-Nov-20 12:56:28

AirBnB for the vacant suites at Kensington Palace?

merlotgran Sat 21-Nov-20 12:59:59

I don't see them doing any 'sharing' with Eugenie and Jack either. That's if they ever return.

Never mind. Buck House should do them nicely and it's empty at the moment.

Ellianne Sat 21-Nov-20 13:49:55

Just wondering here, did the decision come about after the Biden victory? H & M might have needed it more if Trump had won?
