Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are thought to have departed Frogmore Cottage after living there for only six weeks.
The royal couple has been loaning the famous cottage since November from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Still, now Eugenie, 30, and her husband, Jack, 34, have moved back to Kensington Palace, prompting questions about why Frogmore Cottage seems such an unpopular home for the Royal Family.
A royal source told the Sun: “It is empty again. Why does no one want to live in Frogmore Cottage? What is wrong with the place?”
The cottage underwent extensive renovations in 2019 before Harry and Meghan moved in, costing £2.4 million ($3.1 million) of taxpayers’ money; however, the couple lived there for a matter of months before stepping back from their public duties and moving away from the royal estate.
Princess Eugenie and her husband are expecting their first child together after tying the knot back in October 2018 during a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle.
The historic Frogmore Cottage, with its five bedrooms, designer kitchen, and yoga room, appears to be the perfect home to start a family — but some of the royals seem to disagree.
Reports indicate that Eugenie and Jack have not been paying rent to live in the cottage, which has a lake and 35 acres of private gardens.
Many believe it is a private arrangement between Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie. Although their reasons for disappearing from Frogmore Cottage after such a short time are unknown, royal experts have speculated that Princess Eugenie’s pregnancy is likely to be a major factor in the couple’s recent house moves.
Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the rapid exit. And a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex refused to say why Eugenie and Jack had fled the home.
Royal fans have been trying hard to figure out why the couple left the cottage after six short weeks, and they have been sharing their wild theories.
“Meghan must have really asked them to pay rent. More likely E doesn’t want to be there with M while they quarantine for two weeks, especially being pregnant,” claimed a person who follows the royal family.
“They had a fight …Meghan wants her claws on that property as she refurbished it and probably has plans to come occasionally…” revealed another social media user. This commenter added: “It’s probably haunted.”
At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, the couple was living in Kensington Palace, where they have now returned.
Princess Eugenie and Mr. Brooksbank are expecting their first child early next year, after announcing it to the public in September, as the second wave of coronavirus took hold in the U.K.
