Meghan Markle and Prince Harry would have been unhappy with their royal residence, claims an expert.
Royal author Katie Nicholl reveals the Duchess of Sussex was upset when she learned her new home would be Frogmore Cottage, not Windsor Castle.
“The cottage was a big deal. The Queen’s entrance to the gardens is right next to their cottage. It’s basically his backyard, his solitude and his privacy. She was giving that up by gifting Harry and Meghan Frogmore Cottage. We all thought that was very important of him. She said, ‘I hope they respect it,'” the excerpt read.
Meanwhile, expert Kinsey Schofield adds: “Part of me wonders if Meghan constantly evaluating what Prince William and Catherine had versus what she was being offered was what initially sparked the Castle lawsuits. Windsor,” she said.
“It’s clear that Meghan wants to be seen as a princess, and a princess needs a castle.”
“Windsor Castle has always been a sacred escape for Queen Elizabeth,” Schofield added. “And given the amount of drama the Sussexes have caused in such a short time, I don’t think the Queen wanted them under her nose.”
