The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will live beside Prince William and Kate Middleton at Windsor next month, but they're unlikely to ‘bump into’ their temporary neighbors during their stay.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's surprise visit to the UK was confirmed by their spokesperson on Sunday, much to the excitement of their European fanbase.
The royal couple will visit a number of charity events during their trip to Britain, starting with the One Young World Summit in Manchester on September 5. They'll then jet off to Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year To Go event on September 6, before flying back to England to attend the Well Child Awards on September 8.
News of their whirlwind transatlantic tour comes less than a few months after Meghan and Harry made their first joint return to the UK since emigrating to North America for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
It’s understood that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will stay at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor during their time in England, a mere five minutes away from Prince William and Kate Middleton’s new home of Adelaide Cottage. Harry and Meghan are already well-acquainted with the five-bedroom residence, having lived there as newlyweds after tying the knot in May 2019.
Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, moved into the Grade II listed property when the Sussexes relocated to the US in 2020, but it has reportedly become vacant since they moved to Portugal with their son, August, in May. The luxurious house still belongs to Prince Harry, who renewed the Frogmore Cottage lease in February so that he could maintain a residency in the UK.
Despite staying a mere 800 meters from Prince William and Kate Middleton’s new home whilst in England, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly have no plans to meet their royal relatives during their trip.
The Cambridges are understood to be in the midst of moving to Adelaide Cottage in Berkshire with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, after nearly a decade of living at Kensington Palace. A Middleton family member has since revealed that Kate and William have their ‘hands full’ with the Windsor move, but are ‘more than ready’ to leave London for a quieter life in the country.
It appears they’re not so ready, however, for a Cambridge-Sussex reunion – at least, according to royal insiders.
“I don’t think they would bump into one another unless it was pre-arranged,” Ingrid Seward, Editor of Majesty magazine, said in response to reports that the two couples had ‘no plans’ to reunite.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also unlikely to see the Queen, due to their engagements conflicting with the monarch’s 'busy diary'. Her Majesty, who is currently on vacation at Balmoral Castle, is expected to host an audience with the incoming Prime Minister on September 5.
“It is expected family conversations will take place to see if there is any space in their diaries – but there is a lot on, especially for the Queen,” a source told the Sun.
