Meghan and Harry latest – Duke & Duchess hand keys for Frogmore to Eugenie as they move belongings in dead of night

HARRY and Meghan have handed the keys to Frogmore Cottage to Princess Eugenie, The Sun has exclusively revealed.

The Sussexes' prized possessions were hauled out of Frogmore Cottage in the dead of night to make way for their new tenant.

Pregnant Eugenie, 30, and husband Jack Brooksbank moved into the refurbished five-bed home in Windsor two weeks ago.

The secretive switch saw treasured items and furniture packed off to the Sussexes’ home in California.

Although Grade II-listed Frogmore technically remains the Sussexes’ UK residence, it is unlikely they will live there as a family again.

A source said: “Removal vans pitched up in the dead of the night and cleared out the cottage. They definitely did not want to be seen.

“Emptying their home and handing over the keys is a pretty strong sign Harry and Meghan have no plans to return.

“It appears they are tying up loose ends as they plan to extend their stay in the US perhaps permanently.”

    DO THE ROYALS WATCH THE CROWN?

    As fans devour the latest series of The Crown, many are wondering whether or not the royal family tune in too.

    According to royal biographer Robert Lacey – who is also a historical consultant on the show – the Queen isn’t an avid watcher.

    He claims this is because it “comes too close to the
    truth”.

    He explained: “Whenever any of them are asked about The Crown they always deny watching it. And that may be because imagination can convey a truth that the facts themselves cannot.

    “I would say that The Crown comes the closest to actually re-creating the reality of royal life.”

    Describing how Harry is “aware of everything that is happening”, the source told Sky News: “You do not need a public statement to imagine how he is feeling privately. People know how much his mother means to him.

    “He has spoken out bravely in the past about loss and grief, and the immense impact it has had on him.”

    MEGHAN IS AWARE HER AND HARRY ARE NO LONGER 'THE GOLDEN COUPLE', INSIDER CLAIMS

    The Duchess of Sussex has taken on two new publicity experts in a desperate bid to bolster her ailing image, The Sun has exclusively revealed.

    Meghan has appointed the US-based pair to head-up an urgently revamped press team following several embarrassing PR blunders.

    A source said: “Meghan is well aware that she and Harry are no longer the golden couple.

    “Prince William and Kate can do no wrong now as far as the UK is concerned, whereas she and Harry are seen as a self-interested couple who quit the Royal Family to pursue their own interests.

    “Meghan hopes to turn things around and show people how committed to doing good she is, and for them to see a different, more positive side to her.”

    News of the appointments comes after Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, were slammed for staging their own pictures in an LA Cemetery for Remembrance Sunday.

    MEGHAN 'WANTS TO KEEP ARCHIE WELL AWAY FROM LONDON', EXPERT CLAIMS

    They may have relocated to California for a more private life – but if Meghan Markle and Prince Harry return to the UK, an expert has claimed they'll do their best to avoid London.

    Appearing on Talk Radio today, royal expert Angela Levin said: “I don't think Meghan would dare come back to London.

    “She would have to bring Archie and they want to keep him well away from London.”

    What's more, the expert claimed that the couple are trying to avoid spending Christmas with the Royal Family.

    She added: “It is just Harry and Meghan are making all sorts of excuses not to come and share Christmas with the Queen.

    “I think that Meghan feels that if she comes to London the atmosphere will be so terrible that she wouldn't be able to take it.”

    MEGHAN'S SWEET ANNIVERSARY GIFT

    It’s been over two years since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot in a fairytale wedding in Windsor – and the Duchess really outdid herself with her first anniversary present to her husband.

    According to People, Meghan hand wrote out their wedding speech and had it framed for Harry to tie in with the 'paper' tradition of the first wedding anniversary.

    While it is not known what was exactly said by the bride on her wedding day, she did declare "I have found my prince."

    She also spoke about her “special bond” with Prince Charles and thanked the royal family for “welcoming” her.

    The Duchess of Sussex has been known for her beautiful handwriting over the years and even taught calligraphy lessons when she worked at the US stationery shop, Paper Source.

    MEGHAN WAS 'ALWAYS A LEADER', FORMER TEACHER SAYS

    Meghan Markle's teacher has revealed how she was a “leader among school friends” and always “stood up for the underdog”.

    Ilise Faye – who taught the Duchess of Sussex until she was 13 years old – opened up about her classroom memories of the young royal in a documentary which aired last year.

    She said: “Meghan was one of those children that would stand up for underdog.

    “She would stand up for what she believed in, and she was a leader among her friends, her peer group.”

    The teacher added: “School was important to her, learning was important and she had a voice.”

    MEGHAN HAS HER OWN VERB

    She may have lost her HRH title when she stepped back from the Royal Family – but now Meghan Markle has something arguably more impressive.

    The Duchess of Sussex's name has been turned into a verb meaning to "value yourself and mental health" and “leave situations” when it all gets too much.

    The new “verb” was first shared on Twitter and posted on Instagram by actress, body positivity activist and former Radio One DJ Jameela Jamil – who was included in Meghan's 'Forces for Change' issue of British Vogue.

    The faux-dictionary definition of the verb reads: “To value yourself and mental health enough to up and leave a room/ situation / environment in which your authentic self is not welcomed or wanted.

    “Person A: Where's Ryan? Person B: Oh, he Meghan Markled.”

    WILLIAM AND HARRY'S NANNY'S SNEAKY TRICK TO GET THEM TO EAT THEIR VEG

    Just like many other kids, Prince William and Prince Harry were reluctant to eat their greens as young boys – but their nanny had a sneaky trick up her sleeve. 

    According to royal chef Darren McGrady, their nanny would make them eat one piece of broccoli for each piece of chicken. 

    Darren shared the sweet fact on a YouTube tutorial of how he made William and Harry’s childhood crispy chicken and mac and cheese dish. 

    Darren said: “William and Harry loved this with shuck corn, but when nanny was in the house she always insisted the ‘boys must eat their greens’. 

    “She insisted that it was broccoli all the time. The boys I guess like any boys weren’t huge fans of broccoli. 

    “But what she said was ‘when you do the broccoli I want you to have one piece of broccoli with each piece of chicken.’”

    MEGHAN AND HARRY FLED HALLOWEEN PARTY AFTER NEWS OF ROMANCE WAS ABOUT TO BE MADE PUBLIC, BOOK CLAIMS

    Back in 2016, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had just started dating and were trying to keep their relationship out of the public eye.

    But according to the royal biography Finding Freedom, the couple decided to spend Halloween “in public” at a Soho House party in Toronto – but still wore Venetian-style face masks to protect their identities.

    Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claimed Meghan and Harry had the “perfect evening” celebrating the spooky holiday.

    The authors wrote: “Surrounded by the establishment’s exclusive clientele and confident due to a rule that discouraged patrons from surreptitiously snapping pictures with their phones, Harry and Meghan felt at ease.”

    However before the party ended, Harry received a call from Kensington Palace telling him that his romance with the American actress was about to be front page news.

    Although Harry's team urged him to return to London, the authors claim he remained in Canada with Meghan to help her deal with the paparazzi frenzy.

    PRINCE HARRY LABELLED ‘DISLOYAL’ FOR SIGNING NETFLIX DEAL

    Since it landed on Netflix last week, the series of The Crown has been causing quite a stir with royal fans.

    Appearing on Talk Radio today, royal author Angela Levin blasted Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix deal – reportedly worth £75m.

    She said: “I think what he’s doing now is so disloyal and rude [for] taking money from a company like Netflix who know they’ll get their pint of blood out of somebody when they offer a lot of money.
    “And he knows the same company is ridiculing his father, his mother and his grandfather.”

    In response to the series, a source close to Prince Charles told the Mail Online: “This is drama and entertainment for commercial ends being made with no regard to the actual people involved who are having their lives hijacked and exploited.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE HAD TO 'REINVENT HERSELF' BEFORE MARRYING INTO ROYAL FAMILY

    Before she married into the Royal Family, Meghan Markle was most famous for her role in Suits.

    Speaking ahead of the Royal Family in 2018, royal expert Victoria Murphy claimed the former actress would have to “reinvent herself”.

    The expert said: “She has had a long time to have an independent life to forge her own opinions, and she has very much made a career of promoting herself – of putting herself forward.

    “She had an Instagram account, and she's been very open and outspoken about a lot of things. And these are things that are going to have to change.”

    “It does feel like a need for a bit of reinvention really, she is really kind of parking what she's done before and moving herself into her new role.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE 'FELT BRITS DIDN'T UNDERSTAND HER', EXPERT CLAIMS

    Meghan Markle “wasn't a fan of England” and felt that Brits “didn't understand her”, a royal expert has sensationally claimed.

    Speaking to Fox News, editor of Majesty magazine Ingrid Seward drew comparisons between the Duchess of Sussex and Edward VIII's wife Wallis Simpson.

    The American divorcee's marriage to King Edward VIII in 1937 meant he became the first-ever monarch to abdicate, changing the path of history – and eventually leading to Queen Elizabeth II ascending to the throne.

    Ingrid claimed Megxit was a “very similar scenario” to the abdication crisis because Prince Harry “seemingly gave up everything for her” – just like his late great-uncle.

    The author of Prince Philip Revealed: A Biography said: “Wallis hated England. She hated the climate and felt people didn’t understand her or her sense of humour.

    “In the case of Meghan, I think she very much felt that the British people didn’t understand her or particularly liked her.”

    MEGHAN IS MAKING THE SAME MISTAKE AS DIANA, SAYS ROYAL BIOGRAPHER

    Royal biographer Harry Mount claims the Duchess of Sussex has made a mistake by pursuing a privacy case against a major publisher and drew parallels to Princess Diana.

    Mr Mount said Diana was “the first young royal to try to control the news agenda in 1995”, with her BBC Panorama interview with journalist Martin Bashir, which is now being investigated by the BBC.

    He said: “The only people who benefit when royals take matters into their own hands are the lawyers.”

    “The Martin Bashir story and the Duchess of Sussex’s lawsuit highlight the challenges of those who marry into the Firm, particularly independent-minded young women.”

    REPRESENTATIVE OF EPSTEIN VICTIMS CALLS ON PRINCE ANDREW TO DO INTERVIEW WITH FBI

    It's the first anniversary of Prince Andrew quitting royal duties, and one year later Lisa Bloom, who represents six of Epstein's alleged victims, called on the duke to submit to an interview with the FBI.

    Speaking to PA news agency, Ms. Bloom said: “How outrageous that it's been a year since Prince Andrew publicly promised to co-operate with law enforcement investigating all those who enabled Jeffrey Epstein's sexual assaults on hundreds of women and girls.

    “He simply has not kept that promise. Meanwhile, the six victims I represent struggle to repair their lives.

    “We implore Prince Andrew to submit to an interview with the FBI investigation of Ghislaine Maxwell and other accused co-conspirators, to tell what he knows, to turn over documents and evidence, and to instruct his staff to do so as well.

    “It is never too late to do the right thing.”

    NETFLIX WILL WANT “A POUND OF FLESH” FROM THE ROYALS, SAYS EXPERT

    Royal expert Dickie Arbiter spoke on talkRADIO with Dan Wootton about Netflix's deal with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and warned the streaming giant would want a “pound of flesh” from the royals.

    Mr Wootton said: “Prince Charles is said to be furious with Netflix for his portrayal in the new series of The Crown.

    “Sources close to the Prince briefed the Mail on Sunday that it is trolling by Netflix on a Hollywood budget.

    “Prince Harry and Meghan have signed a multi-million pound deal with Netflix.”

    He said: “Meghan is an actress and Harry isn't and Netflix might want their pound of flesh out of Harry because he is still a member of the Royal Family.”

    ROYAL EXPERT SAYS HARRY NEEDS TO “MAN UP” AND JOIN FORCES WITH PRINCE WILLIAM

    Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine has called on the Duke of Sussex to speak out on the BBC inquiry about an interview with the late Princess Diana.

    She said: “Harry’s silence speaks volumes. He is normally so keen on letting his opinions be known — why hasn’t he done so in this case and stood by his brother to share the responsibility.

    “It is odd he hasn’t spoken out about the BBC and Bashir case as he has been speaking out a lot about other things recently.

    “Harry should really man up and forget the fallout with his brother.”
