Prince Harry dated his change of residency to the US to June 29 last year – the day he and Meghan Markle officially vacated Frogmore Cottage.

Frogmore Cottage remains empty, one year after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially left the five-bedroom property.

While King Charles is widely reported to be trying to get Prince Andrew to move into the Windsor residence, a commentator noted the emptiness of the house is “symbolic”.

Appearing on the Royal Report programme on Sky News Australia, writer and broadcaster Esther Krakue said: “There is something symbolic about the fact that that house remains empty.

“People are saying this is representative of everything that could have been with Harry and Meghan and how they could have contributed to the Royal Family, but there are also questions whether actually it was ever meant to be.

“So people are saying, or there is some speculation whether the Royal Household could have done more to keep Harry and Meghan on side to prevent the acrimonious split that happened in 2020.”

Ms Krakue then referred to the tell-all interviews released by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after they bowed out of the working Royal Family and the publication of Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir Spare in early 2023.

The decision to share criticism and allegations against the Firm and its members, she said, “would suggest” that the presence of the Sussexes “in the fold could have risked more than having them outside of it and them releasing their version of the story in the way that they see fit in the way they currently have”.

The commentator also noted Prince Harry’s change of residency from the UK to the US was dated June 29, 2023 in filings on Companies House from his organisation Travalyst.

She said: “It’s very interesting that Prince Harry chose to date his official residency in the US as the date he was kicked out of Frogmore Cottage, I think he was trying to send a message and it was very symbolic, but the bigger message here is that it represents everything that could have been and is not and has been lost and potentially represents what actually should probably have never been.”
