The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly bid a sad farewell to Frogmore Cottage after handing over the keys to Princess Eugenie.

And Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's prized possessions were even moved in a top secret midnight operation to make sure the news remained under wraps, the Sun claims.

Pregnant 30-year-old Eugenie and her husband of two years Jack Brooksbank are believed to have moved into the five-bed Windsor home a fortnight ago, with Harry and Meghan's items shipped out to their new digs in California.

A source allegedly told the Sun: “Removal vans pitched up in the dead of the night and cleared out the cottage. They definitely did not want to be seen.

“Emptying their home and handing over the keys is a pretty strong sign Harry and Meghan have no plans to return.

“It appears they are tying up loose ends as they plan to extend their stay in the US perhaps permanently.”

While Frogmore will remain the Sussexes officially listed UK residence, it is now unlikely they will ever live there as a family.

It was announced in September that Eugenie was pregnant with her first child, due in the New Year.

Details of the agreement reached between her and the Sussexes have not yet been released, and it is unknown how long she and her husband will remain at Frogmore.

Harry and Meghan only paid off the £2.4million of taxpayers' cash used to renovate the property in September this year..

It's believed the money was paid off after the couple had signed a huge Netflix deal, and before that a deal had been struck which saw the pair paying off £18,000 a month.

When it was announced on September 17 this year, the pair released a statement which read: "Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.

"As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us."

They added that Netflix's "unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action".
