Princess Eugenie, 31, is the first member of the British royal family to see Prince Harry, 36, in more than a year since he, his wife, Meghan Markle, and their son, Archie, stepped back from their royal roles and moved to California.
The princess is currently living at Frogmore Cottage, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s UK home, alongside her husband, Jack Brooksbank, and their newborn son, August. It’s the first time that Harry will have met his first cousin once removed, who was born in February and has the middle name Prince Philip in a nod to his great-grandfather.
It’s not yet known whether Prince Harry will also get to meet his cousin Zara Tindall’s newborn son, Lucas, who was born last month and also got his middle name from the late Duke.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex offered up Frogmore, which lies in the grounds of Queen Elizabeth II’s Windsor estate, when Eugenie and Brooksbank, 31, found out they were expecting.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle renovated Frogmore to the tune of approximately $3 million in taxpayer funds, though they have announced plans to reimburse Britain for the cost. The couple lived in the cottage for less than six months before moving to Canada and then Montecito, California.
Prince Harry flew into London’s Heathrow Airport on Sunday and is currently quarantining at Frogmore in accordance with UK rules ahead of Philip’s funeral on Saturday. Heavily pregnant Markle, who is expecting a baby girl in early summer, has been forced to stay at home in the US after taking medical advice.
