Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could use royal loophole to reclaim £2.4m Frogmore payment

During the Royally Obsessed podcast, royal experts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie discussed a loophole that could allow Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to get the money that was spent on Frogmore Cottage back if they ever decide to give up ownership of the listed building. Ms Bowie stated that she expected the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to hold onto Frogmore Cottage as their UK residence. 

Ms Bowie said: “I did not realise this but reading more and more about the Frogmore cottage payment they will get that money back if they ever decided to give that house back to the Queen.

“They will recoup that money because it is a historic UK residence of the Royal Family.

“So, whenever they do give that house back and say we no longer need a house in the UK they get the £2.4million.”

Ms Fiorito asked: “That is crazy. So, will they stay there when they go back home?

Ms Bowie replied: “Yes, I think they will stay there when they go back home and that is the plan.

“That is why they repaid it, so they would have a permanent place to stay when they go back.”

Last month a royal commentator stated that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to move into Frogmore Cottage may have shown they never intended to fulfill a diary of official engagements.

During True Royalty’s Royal Beat Christopher Warwick discussed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decison to move into Frogmore Cottage during their time with the Royal Family.

During the same podcast the royal experts discussed reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have agreed to pay $43,000 (£32,000) per month for the next 30 years to pay off the mortgage for their new Santa Barbara, California mansion in the US.

Ms Bowie said: “There is space for five cars, rose gardens, a tennis court, a tea house, a children’s playground and large swimming pool.”

Ms Fiorito added: “That really got me, your own personal playground, that is incredible.”

Ms Bowie continued: “It is a $14.6million (£11million) home, they actually put down a third of that, mortgaging $9.5million (£7million) according to sources.

“That calculates to $43,000 (£32,000) a month for a 30-year mortgage.”
