Pregnant Eugenie and her husband reportedly moved into the Windsor residence in November. However, the couple moved back into Kensington Palace just six weeks after it was loaned to them, reports.
Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex are said to have loaned the five-bedroom cottage to the royal couple to “start their own family”.
The Sussexes said they were “delighted” to “open up their home” to Princess Eugenie and her husband who are expecting their first child.
An insider source told : “It is empty again. Why does no one want to live in Frogmore Cottage? What is wrong with the place?”
According to , Buckingham Palace did not want to comment and sources told the paper it was a private arrangement between Princess Eugenie and Prince Harry.
The Sussexes spent £2.4million of taxpayers’ money to transform Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Castle estate into a family home.
The upgrade included a £50,000 eco-friendly boiler, yoga rom and designer kitchen.
However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family earlier this year.
They are currently living in the US with their baby son Archie.

Royal expert Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie believed Eugenie is staying at cottage rent-free.
Speaking on Royally Obsessed, Ms Fiorito said: “It feels weird to me because they only just paid it off.”
Ms Bowie added: “I know but on the flip side if it is vacant, wouldn’t you rather have someone looking after it?
“I don’t think that they’re paying rent which is interesting. I’ve seen a couple of reports of that.
“I think where it seems logical for me, the pandemic must have thrown such a wrench into things. Especially when you’re about to welcome a baby.
“Originally they were at Kensington Palace but I think logistically this all seems a smart a decision as we all relocate during this pandemic.”
Ms Fiorito added: “I agree and Frogmore Cottage is really big.
“If they are staying in one part of the house and Harry and Meghan come back from California and want to stay, I’m sure there is a wing of rooms for them.”
