Quinn pointed out, “Harry and Meghan imagined Frogmore would always be there for them even if they came back to the UK for just a few weeks each year and even if they were no longer working royals.”

“That assumption speaks volumes about just how out of touch with each other King Charles and his son had become.”

The Frogmore eviction was a straightaway blow on the Duke

According to the royal commentator, this eviction was a profound blow to Prince Harry.

“At the time, few people realised what a slap in the face the eviction from Frogmore felt like for Harry – it was the last straw,” Quinn told Daily Mirror.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex relocated to the US in 2020 following their decision to step down from their roles as working members of the Royal Family.

Despite this, the royal couple were allowed to maintain Frogmore Cottage as their UK home for a period of time. But, in 2023, King Charles made the decision to evict them from the property. And it was hard for him.

Reports indicate that Harry and Meghan regarded Frogmore Cottage as a sanctuary, the“only place that’s left as a safe space” in the UK.

Despite their infrequent use of the property due to their primary residence in a lavish Californian mansion in Montecito, US it held deep sentimental value for them, especially in terms of their family's connection to it.
