Princess Eugenie to move to Portugal as Harry and Meghan eye up Frogmore Cottage

Princess Eugenie has snapped up a home in sunny Portugal where her husband is working with a business partner of George Clooney.

Prince Andrew's second daughter, her husband of four years Jack Brooksbank and their one-year-old son August, have packed up their bags and left Frogmore Cottage which they were subletting from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The family have swapped Windsor with the posh CostaTerra Golf and Ocean Club on the fashionable Lisbon coast where they have been settling into over the past few weeks.

Eugenie, 32, has decided to follow Jack, 36, out to Portugal for a new business venture with American entrepreneur Mike Meldman, the Express reports.

Although the couple will be back in London to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, the now emptied Frogmore Cottage will likely be occupied by Harry, Meghan and their children Archie and Lilibet after extending their 12-month lease on the property.

A source said: “Jack will spend some of the time in Portugal and some of the time here. Eugenie will want to be with him.”

It had only recently been converted into a single home for the Sussexes with the aid of £2.4 million from the Sovereign Grant, when Eugenie and Jack made it their marital home 20 months ago.

It is not clear how the Princess will juggle her work as associate director of international art gallery Hauser & Wirth.

The pair are expected to return to Britain this week for the Jubilee, but return soon afterwards to Portugal.

But Jack, a brand ambassador for tequila company Casamigos, has joined Mr Meldman’s exclusive Portuguese property venture in a similar role.

Mr Meldman, who co-founded Casamigos with Hollywood A-lister Clooney, also set up Discovery Land Company, which develops resort settlements.

His projects have taken off in glamour locations like New York, California and Hawaii, and clients have included Bill Gates, Michael Jordan and Reese Witherspoon.

By returning to Windsor, Harry, 37, and Meghan 40, have signalled that they are not “going to disappear” from Britain.

An insider said: “They could easily give up Frogmore as their life's now in California.

"By agreeing to extend the lease, and with Jack and Eugenie focusing on Portugal, they have a firm presence smack bang in the middle of the Windsor court.

"The coming year could be one of the most tumultuous in royal history and the Sussexes are making sure they have a foothold in Windsor."
