Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank reportedly quit their stay at Frogmore Cottage in December – just weeks after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are thought to have handed them the keys. The couple are expecting their first child together in the coming months and are understood to have favoured a return to their Kensington Palace home.
But, previous indicators suggested the couple may have since moved into the residence of her father Prince Andrew and mother Sarah Ferguson for the third national lockdown.
Eugenie and Jack spent the first national lockdown in March and April at Royal Lodge in Windsor.
The vast Berkshire residence has been the home of the Duke of York since 2002.
The 17th century home boasts an impressive 30 bedrooms and has 21 acres of secluded land.
Fergie has previously spoken publically about how great it was to spend quality time with both Eugenie and Jack during the first nationwide lockdown.
The Duchess of York gave an insight into how the royals coped during that period when speaking to former X-factor winner Darlton Harris on his City Island Podcast.
Fergie said: “During this lockdown period I’ve really loved spending more time with Eugenie and Jack.
“My daughter got married to Jack in, oh goodness, was it last October? No, it was October before, heavens! And so, of course once she’s gone to get married they live away.
“So, I haven’t seen her so much and so now it’s been a total joy to spend real quality time with her.
“And, first time in 30 years I even baked a lemon drizzle cake with her, so the first thing is that it’s fantastic.”
In September, Eugenie and Jack announced they were expecting a baby in “early 2021”.
Just two months later, Meghan and Harry reportedly offered the couple the chance to raise a child in their former marital home in Windsor.

“Obviously the Queen was told after the couples had spoken about the plan.
“But it is very much a deal done between Harry, Meghan, Eugenie and Jack.
“There is a close bond between them.”
