When King Charles requested that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle vacate Frogmore Cottage last year it was initially seen as yet another chapter in the ongoing rift between Harry and the Royal Family.

However, recent insights have revealed that Harry reportedly took it much more personally than previously understood with the controversial royal perceiving the move as “vindictive”.

Shedding light on the emotional turmoil within the palace walls, royal expert Tom Quinn revealed the depth of Harry’s anguish over the eviction.

“At the time, few people realised what a slap in the face the eviction from Frogmore felt like for Harry – it was the last straw,” Quinn told the Mirror.

“Harry was absolutely furious and in tears about being evicted from Frogmore – he felt his father had no right to do it and that it was purely vindictive.

“Harry took it as a cruel rejection – a painful reminder of all that he felt when his father fought with his mother during their long drawn out, painful divorce.”

Despite the passage of time, it seems that Prince Harry is still grappling with a lingering sense of unhappiness regarding his father’s decision after he officially confirmed his status as a resident of the United States.

Four years after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle bid farewell to the Royal Family and stepped down from their royal duties, the Duke of Sussex has solidified his presence on American soil, marking a significant chapter in his ongoing estrangement from the Monarchy.

The declaration came as paperwork filed by Travalyst Ltd, a company predominantly owned by Prince Harry, formally informing British authorities of his relocation to the US.

Since their departure from royal responsibilities, Prince Harry has not shied away from voicing criticisms of the royal institution. Allegations of unconscious racism within the Monarchy, prominently featured in both a Netflix documentary series and the prince’s autobiography, Spare, have further strained his ties with the Royal Family.

The timing of the paperwork filing, however, has raised eyebrows and ignited speculation about whether Harry was subtly taking a jab at The Firm.

By choosing to mark his official US residency with the date he and Meghan were asked to vacate Frogmore Cottage, Prince Harry has ignited accusations of “trolling” directed towards his father, King Charles.

Speaking to GB News, Royal Editor Charlotte Griffiths said the move by the royal was due to him being “bitter” about the decision by his father, to remove him and Meghan from the residence.

“I wouldn’t put it past him to have deliberately put that in there to spite his father,” Griffiths said.

“To me, it feels like he’s trolling his dad a bit, because he could have said that he’s been a US resident since 2020, when he quit the UK and moved to the States, but instead he chose the exact day that his dad kicked him out of Frogmore.

“The reason his dad kicked him out of Frogmore was because he’d slagged off Camilla in Spare. And apparently it was a really difficult decision for Charles because no dad wants to kick their son out of their home. But he went beyond the pale.”
