The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who relocated to Meghan’s home state of California in 2020, knew about the move before Harry’s book, Spare, was released.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are not pushing back on King Charles’ decision to evict them from their U.K. home, Frogmore Cottage.
A source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are “matter-of-fact” about being requested to leave Frogmore Cottage and aren’t trying to overturn the decision. The source adds that Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, are happy to raise their two children in California, where they moved in 2020 after stepping back as senior members of the royal family.
However, those close to the couple say the decision is “unfortunate” — especially in terms of security, as Frogmore Cottage in Windsor was a haven for the pair and their children, 3-year-old son Archie Harrison and 1-year-old daughter Lilibet Diana, when they visited the U.K.
