HARRY and Meghan struck their Frogmore Cottage giveaway deal behind the backs of senior royals, sources claimed yesterday.
The couple have formed a new “Fab Four” with Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank, who can now start their new family at the empty property.Meghan and Harry struck their Frogmore Cottage giveaway deal behind the backs of senior royals, sources have claimedCredit: PA:Press Association Eugenie and Jack, pictured on their wedding day in 2018, are expected to 'house-sit' at Frogmore Cottage into the New YearCredit: Reuters
It came after direct talks between the two couples, who have been great pals since Meghan first started dating Harry four years ago.
Pregnant Eugenie, 34, and Jack, 30, are expected to “house-sit” into the New Year, when they are expecting their first child.
Harry and Meghan, who live in California, insist Frogmore Cottage remains their UK home.
But our exclusive story on their handover to Eugenie has sparked claims they could stay away for good.
An insider said: “Senior royals were initially blindsided by the idea for Harry and Meg to let Eugenie and Jack move in.
“Obviously the Queen was told after the couples had spoken about the plan.
“But it is very much a deal done between Harry, Meghan, Eugenie and Jack. There is a close bond between them.”Harry and Meghan have insisted Frogmore Cottage is still their UK homeCredit: Alamy The Sun broke the story about Eugenie and Jack 'house-sitting' Harry and Meg's Windsor pad
Palace insiders say they are the new “Fab Four”, a term previously used to describe the Sussexes and William and Kate.
Harry paved the way for the deal in September after announcing they had paid back the £2.4million taxpayer bill for renovations to the Windsor cottage.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “Frogmore Cottage is the private residence of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and as such any arrangements are a matter for them.”
