Harry & Meghan to repay British taxpayers £2.4m for Frogmore Cottage restorations

Prince Harry will repay British taxpayers £2.4m which was spent on the renovation of their family home.

Frogmore Cottage underwent major renovations recently when the Duke & Duchess of Sussex moved to the property, with public money being spent.

Now the Sussexes are stepping back from royal life, Harry has pledged to repay the money.

Frogmore Cottage stands in the grounds of Windsor Castle and is close to Frogmore House where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex held their evening reception following their wedding at St. George’s Chapel on May 19th 2018.

In their original statement last Wednesday, the Sussexes explained that they plan to keep the cottage as a home. They state that ”Frogmore Cottage will continue to be the property of Her Majesty The Queen”. The couple then added that ”The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to use Frogmore Cottage – with the permission of Her Majesty The Queen – as their official residence as they continue to support the Monarchy…”.

The official website also states that they want to continue to use Frogmore Cottage so that ”their family will always have a place to call home in the United Kingdom”.
