Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have officially moved in
according to a report from ITV News, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have officially moved out of Frogmore Cottage. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex first received the eviction notice from King Charles about three months ago. A palace official revealed the couple had “just left” the property.
