Andrew tried to secure the property for his daughter
Eugenie has lived with her husband Jack Brooksbank and their one-year-old son August at Frogmore Cottage, the former home of, since 2020 Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan. Now, sources have told the Daily Mail that Eugenie “has been trying for some time to secure Adelaide Cottage if she moves out of Frogmore”.
It said: “Prior to Andrew’s recent scandal [die Verwicklung in einen inzwischen außergerichtlich beigelegten Missbrauchsfall, Red.] it was definitely a property that he was also trying to secure for his daughter.” It’s not clear if they’re still interested in it, though. Either way, the Cambridges have the right of first refusal.
William and Kate have apparently been planning to move to the more rural area since last year, where George, Charlotte and Louis are expected to attend school from September. The couple have therefore looked at several properties on the Windsor estate, including Fort Belvedere and Frogmore House. Both properties should not be suitable as a residence for the family.

But Adelaide Cottage, extensively refurbished in 2015 and most recently used as official residence for royal staff and family friends, could be just the ticket. It was announced last month that the Cambridges had their eye on the property in the middle of the royal park in Windsor. The move should be completed by the summer.
