The new father is flying to London to attend the unveiling of Princess Diana's statue on what would have been her 60th birthday next Thursday.

Prince Harry will attend without his family, who have remained in the US

Formerly made up of five properties, the Grade-II building is said to feature five bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room and a nursery, meaning there is plenty of space for Prince Harry. But in order to follow COVID-19 quarantine rules and ensure the safety of both Eugenie's family and Harry, the property has been split into two sections, according to The Sun.

This would not be the first time that the Duke has stayed with Princess Eugenie. Back in April, Harry quarantined at the royal residence ahead of his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral.

After Eugenie and Jack moved into the house in November 2020, a friend told HELLO!: "Eugenie and Harry have always been close and they chat privately all the time.

"It was Harry who suggested she and Jack could use Frogmore Cottage because it is much bigger than their cottage at Kensington Palace. It is a case of one family member reaching out to another."
