Truth : Buckingham Palace Did Not Seize Prince Harry’s UK Properties!
This is yet another example of celebrity FAKE NEWS created to generate page views, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Prince Harry Exited Royal Life In January 2020
First, let me just offer some perspective, and a quick recap on what has been called Megxit.
Prince Harry married Meghan Markle (born Rachel Meghan Markle on 4 August 1981) on May 19, 2018, after which they lived at Nottingham Cottage which is located within the grounds of Kensington Palace.
Queen Elizabeth II gave the couple Frogmore Cottage, which is located in the Home Park of Windsor Castle, as a wedding gift. They then renovated it at great expense using the Sovereign Grant.
By 2019, the couple were planning to establish a second base in the US, Canada or Africa. That culminated in their Instagram announcement on 8 January 2020 that they will “step back as senior members of the British royal family” and become financially independent.
Fact #2 : Prince Harry Lost Many Privileges + Frogmore Cottage After Megxit
It is important to remember Megxit, because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle came to an agreement with Queen Elizabeth II that:
- the couple would no longer represent the Queen.
- Prince Harry will no longer represent the royal family at military ceremonies and cease duties for all British military appointments
- they will retain the Royal Highness style, but will not use it.
- they will no longer be paid by the British taxpayer
- they will pay a commercial rent for Frogmore Cottage, and repay its £2.4 million renovation costs
Fact #3 : Prince Harry Does Not Own Any UK Property
Prince Harry and Meghan only owned one property in the United Kingdom, but that was in the past, when Queen Elizabeth II gave the couple Frogmore Cottage.
However, the Megxit agreement took back ownership of Frogmore from them, returning it to the Crown Estate by Spring 2020. They also repaid the cost of renovating Frogmore Cottage.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex continued to use Frogmore Cottage as their UK residence, as tenants who paid a commercial rent to the Crown Estate.
So Music Mundial’s claim that the British royal family intends to expropriate Prince Harry’s properties in the UK is nonsense. Frogmore Cottage ceased to belong to Harry and Meghan in 2020, and they owned no other property in the United Kingdom.
Fact #4 : Frogmore Cottage Eviction Notice Was Issued In January 2023
The story of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex getting evicted from Frogmore Cottage isn’t new.
Prince Harry published his controversial memoir, Spare, on 10 January 2023. Days later, King Charles ordered Buckingham Palace to issue an eviction notice to Harry and Meghan.
Frogmore Cottage was then reportedly offered to Prince Andrew, the Duke of York who is currently living in nearby Royal Lodge, in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire.
I should point out that it is only possible to evict Prince Harry and Meghan from Frogmore Cottage because it no longer belonged to them, but to the Crown Estate.
The couple was reportedly given until the coronation of King Charles III to fully-vacate Frogmore Cottage.
Fact #5 : Music Mundial Offered No Evidence
As usual, Music Mundial offered ZERO evidence to back up its claims that the British royal family is seizing Prince Harry’s properties in the United Kingdom.
Its claims that the British press reported on this is nonsense. A quick check will reveal that no British media, or celebrity blog, reported on the seizure of Prince Harry’s UK properties.
