The Sussexes' huge commitment, signing another 12-month lease at Frogmore Cottage, is a sign that they may be more interested in spending time in the UK than previously thought.


The Sussexes' huge commitment, to keep their lease at Frogmore Cottage, is an indicator that they're likely to be making more visits to the UK. This would be a delight for Her Majesty, as royal insiders claim the Queen is to meet Lilibet  at last, on her first birthday.

According to the Telegraph (opens in new tab), the pair renewed their lease on a rolling contract. This very tying move means they're likely to be visiting their UK base, next to Windsor Castle, a lot more in the future,

Prince Harry discussed his devotion to the Queen and his need to know she's, "protected and got the right people around her," in a TV interview after their recent secret meeting. When Prince Harry broke silence on his private visit to see his grandmother, after extending an, ‘olive branch,’ to the Royal Family - many saw it as a sign that the Sussexes would be returning for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022.

So when it was confirmed that the family of four would be making the trip, dreams of a royal reconciliation seemed nearer than ever. Even after the Queen confirmed Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Prince Andrew won't be joining her on the Platinum Jubilee balcony - their return seems like a step in the right direction.

As this nugget of information accompanies reports that Prince William and Harry are working on their relationship, it looks like the Queen's grandchildren are banding together to help make her big celebration stress free.
