For at least a few days, Prince Harry, 37, and Duchess Meghan, 40, have been back with their children Archie (3) and Lilibet (11 months) back to Great Britain. On the occasion of the grand jubilee, the renegade royals want to honor the upper echelon of the family, Queen Elizabeth II (96), and return to their old home.
Although the young family currently lives in Montecito, California, they don’t seem to have fully settled with their old home, Frogmore Cottage, as British media have revealed that the two have extended their lease.

The house is currently inhabited by Princess Eugenie, 33, her husband, Jack Brooks Bank, 36, and son August (1). However, the couple is currently spending some time in Portugal, so Harry and Meghan are expected to celebrate little Lillipet’s first birthday at Frogmore Cottage over the weekend. The Queen is also expected to be a guest. This is the first time the king has seen her great-granddaughter.

An insider tells The Sun about Harry and Meghan’s plans for the extended lease: “It’s a signal that they’re not going to disappear that way. In fact, they could easily give up on Frogmore, because the center of their lives is now in California. However, with the lease extension, they’re still there. Very in the middle of Windsor Court, and that’s where it all happens. At the same time, Jack and Eugenie are focused on Portugal. So Meghan and Harry can come and go whenever they want.”
Palace confirms the extension
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson confirmed the contract extension: “Frogmore Country House remains the British home of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.” Will the palace soon be able to confirm further visits to them? (bnr/bang)
