Prince Harry is expected to visit Britain next week. On May 8, he would speak at St Paul’s Cathedral at a special event held to celebrate the Invictus Games’ tenth anniversary. The Duke founded this sporting event – which sees wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans take part in nine sports including wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, and indoor rowing – in 2014 while he was still a working royal.

Since the Sussexes were evicted from Frogmore Castle following Queen Elizabeth’s passing, they no longer own properties in Britain.

The news was confirmed by Harry and Meghan’s spokesperson. “We can confirm the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been requested to vacate their residence at Frogmore Cottage,” the spokesperson told Vanity Fair.

Allegedly, the residence has been offered to Prince Andrew instead, who has been living in a 30-room Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park since 2003.

As per The Sun, Andrew is “resisting” the King’s wish for him to move into Frogmore Cottage. “This surely spells the end of Harry and Meghan’s time in the UK,” a royal source told the newspaper.

Royal expert and author Omid Scobie wrote that King Charles was “spitting mad” with Harry’s book, which undoubtedly played a role in the decision to evict the prince. The relationship between Harry and his family had, at the time, also reached “an all-time low,” Scobie wrote.

“It all feels very final and like a cruel punishment,” a friend of Harry and Meghan’s added. “It’s like [the family] wants to cut them out of the picture for good.”

Just last month, it was revealed that Harry’s primary residence had been changed to the US – cutting his ties with the UK.

When Harry visits Britain, he’s forced to stay at hotels. In September 2023, Harry requested to stay at Windsor Castle, but his request was denied with the Royal Family citing a lack of notice as the reason for the denial.

This time, he would be staying in a hotel again.

Meghan isn’t expected to accompany Harry because she’s concerned for her children’s safety since it was made clear to them that they would have to arrange their own security on any potential visit.

Not being joined by his family may weigh heavily on Harry, according to the Mail on Sunday’s Royal Editor, Charlotte Griffiths. “It’s a really important part of Harry’s soul, and the kind of thing he’d want his wife, maybe even his kids by his side for,” she explained.

“Meghan is leaving him there alone, and I just think he’s going to cast a really lonely portrait of a man without his friends around him, without his family and without senior members of the Royal Family. And no wife there with him as well.”

It has been reported that no member of the Firm would attend the Invictus Games, but that doesn’t mean the Duke won’t meet some of them, including his father who wishes to meet his son again. As per reports, even the prospect of “reconciling” is said to be on the table.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told The Sun newspaper: “The King has always kept the door open to Harry, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that he would invariably get a warm reception.

He added: “It will take its time. But clearly the situation has changed in recent weeks beyond all expectations. I don’t think it would be too difficult, it depends how you define reconcile. I think there’s a long way to go before Harry is bringing over Meghan and the children.”
