Harry and Meghan told to vacate Frogmore Cottage
The move was reportedly sanctioned by the king
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's spokesperson said a "request" had been made for them to give up the residence, near Windsor Castle.
The spokesperson said: "We can confirm the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been requested to vacate their residence at Frogmore Cottage."
Reports have suggested the move, which removes their final foothold in the UK, was sanctioned by the King.
It comes weeks after Harry's controversial book, Spare, was released.
The cottage, which sits within the grounds of Windsor Castle, is a Grade-II listed building with ten bedrooms and was gifted to the couple by the Queen.
Harry and Meghan spent £2.4 million doing the property up in 2018. The bill was initially covered by taxpayers, but the couple later paid it back.
Last year the couple spent their daughter's first birthday at the property.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex vacated their roles as working members of the royal family in 2020 when they moved to California.
Since then, they've hardly been out of the news. First, they gave an explosive interview to Oprah, further deepening riffs with the royal family, then they featured in a Netflix documentary, and Harry released a book.
