Meghan and Prince Harry are happy to leave Frogmore Cottage, saying “if we have to move we’ll get ourselves out,” a source says.
Prince Harry and Meghan are ‘okay’ about leaving Frogmore Cottage following Buckingham Palace’s eviction notice, it has been reported.
The Duke and Duchess are not as ‘baffled’ about their departure as previous reports have suggested, believing that ‘if we have to move, we’ll figure it out on our own’, according to The times.
The couple were reportedly given ‘weeks’ to pack up their UK home after Harry’s memoir Spare hit shelves in January.
Earlier this week, journalist Omid Scobie claimed some members of the royal family were “appalled” by the decision to evict Harry and Meghan, while the couple also reportedly felt “stupid”.
An insider is said to have told him: ‘It all feels very final and like a cruel punishment. It is as if (the family) wants to remove them from view for good.

Harry and Meghan have until early summer to leave. Initially they were only given a few weeks, but now they have at least until after the coronation.’
Still, another source told The Times that the pair were actually “okay” with the decision and had an “it is what it is” approach.

Meghan and Harry are said to have acknowledged that they were “very privileged” to have a home in the UK and US, but accepted that it “wouldn’t work for them.”
“The most disturbing thing was that it was a gift from Her Majesty the Queen, and it isn’t now. But it’s OK,” the source told them.
Just this week, The sun also reported that the five-bedroom property has been offered to Prince Andrew, who now lives at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park.
But he would ‘resist’ the offer – he wants to stay in his larger Windsor Royal Lodge, where he is reportedly paying £250 a week for a state-subsidised 30-room mansion complete with 98 acres of land and a swimming pool.
The revelation comes as the preparations take place for King Charles’ coronation in May amid speculation that Prince Harry may not receive an invitation.
The Sussexes have only stayed at Frogmore Cottage a handful of times since they left the UK three years ago – at last summer’s Platinum Jubilee, on charity drives and after the Queen’s death.
