Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank (opens in new tab), have moved into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's (opens in new tab) UK residence, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor (opens in new tab). But, if you read those headlines and worried that this was yet another example of ~drama~ in the royal family (opens in new tab), you can breath a sigh of relief because Harry and Meghan are totally cool with the move. In fact, it was apparently their idea.

According to a report from ITV (opens in new tab)the Sussexes actually offered up the property to Eugenie and Jack, who are preparing for the birth of their first child (opens in new tab). And no, this doesn't mean that Harry and Meghan (opens in new tab) aren't planning on ever returning to the UK, either.

Apparently, Harry and Meghan's office told ITV that they will "share the property" with Eugenie and Jack "when they travel to the UK." A source close to the Sussexes added that they're "delighted to be able to open up their home to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank as they start their own family."

Sources close to Harry and Meghan confirmed after their royal exit that they plan to "retain financial responsibility" (opens in new tab) for the Windsor property, but according to ITV, it's not yet clear if Eugenie and Jack will be contributing financially while they stay at Frogmore, in the form of rent or paying bills related to maintaining the property.
