Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are sticking to their promise to pay off their U.K. home, Frogmore Cottage.
A spokesperson for the couple announced in a statement on Monday, “A contribution has been made to the Sovereign Grant by The Duke of Sussex. This contribution as originally offered by Prince Harry has fully covered the necessary renovation costs of Frogmore Cottage, a property of Her Majesty The Queen, and will remain the U.K. residence of The Duke and his family.”
If you didn’t know, the SG is the public money that Her Majesty receives each year for expenses, which includes renovating official royal residences. And while the spokesman did not reveal the amount of money the Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid back, public records show that almost $3 million was spent on the home during 2019.
According to Town & Country, the money spent on the cottage only applied to the structural renovations and the duke and duchess had already paid for the fixtures and other fittings themselves.
