Prince Harry has reunited with his cousin Princess Eugenie after arriving home in the UK for his grandfather Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, according to a Page Six recent report.
The 31-year-old Eugenie is the first member of the royal family to set eyes on Prince Harry after they both met a year ago since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to quit acting as senior royals and moved to California to begin a new life.
Princess Eugenie, her husband Jack Brooksbank, and their newborn baby are currently living at Frogmore Cottage, Harry, and Meghan’s UK home. This is the first time Harry is meeting Eugenie’s newborn as well.
It’s not immediately clear whether Prince Harry will meet with his cousin Zara Tindall’s newborn baby who was born last month.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle offered up Frogmore Cottage to Eugenie and her family, which lies on the grounds of Queen Elizabeth II’s Windsor estate when the princess and her husband found out they were expecting a baby.
“It’s fully equipped for a new family and new baby. It’s still Meghan and Harry’s UK residence, they’ll still stay there when they go back, but they’re delighted to be able to open up their home to Princess Eugenie and Jack as they start their own family,” a source said.
Prince Harry and his wife renovated Frogmore apartment with about $3 million in taxpayer funds, and lived there for only six months before moving to Canada first and then to California, although they’re working on paying back the money as they said.
The Duke of Sussex arrived in London on Sunday and is currently quarantining at Frogmore Cottage in compliance with UK COVID-19 rules ahead of Prince Philip’s funeral on Saturday.
Meghan Markle had requested to attend the funeral but was denied approval by her doctor due to her present condition.
