Omid Scobie, one of the authors behind the biography of Harry and Meghan, Finding Freedom said that King Charles' decision came after Prince Harry released his controversial memoir Spare in January, adding that the couple was told the property was needed for "someone else" at a time when relations between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the rest of the royal family were at "an all-time low".

“It's news, sources tell me, that has left Harry and Meghan stunned, and at least two members of the Royal Family 'appalled',” Omid Scobie said, adding that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been given time until the summer to remove their belongings after initially being told they would just be given two weeks.

The Frogmore Cottage was a gift from the late monarch Queen Elizabeth II to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle following their marriage in 2018. The cottage was converted into one home, having previously been five separate properties for staff working on the Windsor Estate, The Mirror reported.
