PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have been left “stunned” at news they are being evicted from Frogmore Cottage.
The Sun today revealed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are being kicked out to make room for Prince Andrew.
Disgraced Andrew was offered the keys to the five-bed Windsor home last week.
King Charles began the process of chucking Harry and Meghan out of Frogmore Cottage days after his son’s controversial memoir Spare was released.
Buckingham Palace issued an eviction notice to the US-based couple as the world reeled from the extraordinary attacks Harry launched against the Royal Family.
Now Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie – a close pal of the Duchess of Sussex – has revealed the couple’s reaction to the news.

He claims it has left Harry and Meghan stunned, and at least two members of the Royal Family “appalled”.
A source close to the couple told him: “It all feels very final and like a cruel punishment.
“It’s like [the family] want to cut them out of the picture for good.”
The disgraced Duke of York, who faces being booted out of his Royal Lodge mansion, was last week offered the smaller Frogmore Cottage, and is said to be “resisting”.

But Harry and Meghan are believed to have no choice but to quit the Windsor property, a gift from the late Queen, which would leave them without a UK home.
They are now drawing up plans to remove their belongings from the five-bed house and ship everything to Montecito, California.
The Sussexes are thought to have been issued with an eviction notice around a month ago in the wake of Harry's book’s publication.
In the biography Harry shockingly accused Camilla of leaking stories to the press and claims she launched a campaign to marry Charles to get the crown.
In another explosive section the Duke tells of the King and Queen Consort’s relationship – and how he and William begged their father not to marry her.
Harry says he and William promised Charles they would welcome Camilla into the family – but the only thing they asked in exchange is that he didn’t marry her.
Harry claimed they approved of Camilla but begged Charles not to get married for a second time following the death of their mother Diana.
Charles did not respond, he alleges.
Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, were given use of the five-bedroom Frogmore Cottage by the Queen as a wedding present in 2018.
The couple claimed it would mean “their family would always have a place to call home in the United Kingdom”.
They ordered £2.4million worth of renovations before moving in the following April.
But they spent just six months in their new home before settling Megxit terms in 2020 — as The Sun first revealed in a world exclusive.
The couple left the UK for a new life abroad, first to Canada and then California — all the while hurling regular barbs at their family.
Harry later paid back the cost of the renovations to the taxpayer in a deal which included leasing Frogmore Cottage for “several years”.
In autumn 2020 they handed the keys to Princess Eugenie and hubby Jack Brooksbank, who have now moved to Portugal.
Harry’s sporadic trips back included staying there for Prince Philip’s funeral in 2021 — weeks after he and Meghan put the boot into the royals in the Oprah interview.
