Should the Sussexes vacate Frogmore Cottage?
WHY are commentators saying the King is being vindictive about Frogmore Cottage in Windsor? He isn’t. He is frugal, financially aware and knows it would be more practical for other members of his family to live there. It’s not a home for Prince Harry and Meghan, their home is in California. They can easily make use of a smaller, unused property for the few days if they visit — it’s not as if they’ll have to camp out with sleeping bags in a palace bedroom, or can’t afford a little London pad somewhere.

SURELY the Sussexes can reserve a suite at Claridge’s for their rare uK visits, once they have vacated Frogmore Cottage.
ANNE STEPHENSON, Higham Ferrers, Northants. KING CHARLES is not being vindictive towards Harry and Meghan. After all, does anyone think the Sussexes will be popping over frequently with their children to spend time at Frogmore? And really, Prince Andrew doesn’t need a 30-room house with seven bedrooms to live in, especially as he has intimated that he won’t be able to afford the upkeep on Royal Lodge. As he and Sarah are divorced, they no longer need to live in the same property.
Royal Lodge would be more suitable and provide space for the Prince and Princess of Wales and their children.
