Prince Andrew is 'resisting' move to Frogmore Cottage for crucial reason after Meghan Markle and Harry evicted | The Sun

PRINCE Andrew is said to be "resisting" moving to Frogmore Cottage following the eviction of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The Sun today exclusively revealed the Sussexes were being booted out of their royal base by King Charles – and that Prince Andrew could be moving in.

The decision to give Harry and Meghan the boot comes after the Duke lobbed bombs at the Royal Family in his explosive memoir.

Disgraced Andrew was then offered the keys to the five-bed Windsor home last week.

But an insider told The Sun the Duke has been "resisting" shifting to the cottage – which was given a £2.4million revamp by the Sussexes in recent years.

The source said that's because 63-year-old doesn't want to downsize from the Royal Lodge in Windsor, which he has called home for more than 20 years.

While Andrew has signed a 75-year lease on the property he still fears he could be kicked out.

The Duke has called the £30million mansion his own since the Queen Mother died in 2002.

The royal residence boasts stunning interiors and plenty of space for entertaining – with both Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie able to hold their wedding receptions there.

It sits within 21 acres of secluded gardens and boasts an eye-catching white exterior.

It is understood Andrew is “resolute” he wants to remain at Royal Lodge, which he shares with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.

However Charles plans to axe the £250,000-a-year royal handout his brother pocketed from his mother in a huge shake-up of funding.

Andrew also paid millions to his sex-abuse accuser Virginia Giuffre in an out-of-court deal. It leaves him unlikely to be able to afford the 31-room mansion’s upkeep.

However, it is believed he has not yet accepted the offer to move.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were said to have been left "stunned" by the King's "cruel punishment" to evict them.

A close pal of Meghan said today: “It all feels very final and like a cruel punishment.

“It’s like [the family] want to cut them out of the picture for good.”

Harry has previously taken aim at Charles – suggesting his dad made him "suffer" in an interview with Oprah.

Speaking to the chat show legend on their new Apple TV+ mental health show, The Me You Can’t See, Harry said: “My father used to say to me when I was younger … ‘Well, it was like that for me, so it’s going to be like that for you."

He added: "That doesn’t make sense — just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact quite the opposite."
