FINALLY the King has hit back at Harry and Meghan over their vicious attacks on his darling wife and Prince William.
They could criticise the King but to accuse Camilla of leaking stories — which nobody seems to believe is true — would not be forgiven.
The King has responded by taking away their grace and favour home, Frogmore Cottage, which was given to them as a perk of their job.
Yesterday the couple claimed to be “stunned” by their eviction.
But actions have consequences. In any walk of life if you are not doing the job, you lose the perks. Harry and Meghan can’t have their cake and eat it.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have only used Frogmore three times in the three years since they left for North America.
They used it for the funerals of the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen as well as for the Platinum Jubilee.
If Harry and his wife only intend to come back for big occasions there’s plenty of room for them to stay at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle.
We still don’t know if Harry and Meghan intend to attend the Coronation in two months’ time.
But the loss of Frogmore could well be the thing that helps them make up their minds and decide whether or not to be there at Westminster Abbey in May.
It is no secret that after the Coronation King Charles wants to create a slimmed-down monarchy.
And that means members of the Royal Family who no longer work for the Firm cannot expect to lead subsidised lives.
Frogmore Cottage should be occupied by someone – but not the disgraced Prince Andrew.
Perhaps it should be given to a secretary or an equerry who is working hard to make the Royal Family tick.
