HARRY and Meghan struck their Frogmore Cottage giveaway deal behind senior royals’ backs, sources have claimed.
It came after direct talks between the two couples, who have been great friends since Meghan first started dating Harry.
Pregnant Eugenie, 34, and Jack, 30, are expected to “house-sit” into the New Year, when they are expecting their first child.
An insider said: “Senior royals were initially blindsided by the idea for Harry and Meg to let Eugenie and Jack move in.
“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.”
