It looks like the tension between Harry and his family is continuing, perhaps even more so after the release of his memoir 'Spare'
Prince Harry and Meghan have been cruelly punished by being asked to move out of their UK home, said a close friend of the pair. It is now being reported that King Charles began evicting just 24 hours after his son's memoir Spare was released. A source told the Sussexes' favored royal reporter, Omid Scobie per Yahoo! News, "It all feels very final and like a cruel punishment. It's like [the family] wants to cut them out of the picture for good. According to The Daily Mail, the couple who now reside in California were initially given weeks to pack up their British home on the grounds of Windsor Castle after Harry released his memoir but now they have at least until after the Coronation in May.
Barred from access to police security, there's just one space that meets the Sussexes' security needs when visiting the UK — Frogmore Cottage. Soon, that will no longer be an option.— Omid Scobie (@scobie) March 1, 2023

In fact, the book is believed to have gotten the monarch “spitting mad”. Omid Scobie says, "Harry and Meghan have until early summer to vacate. Initially, they were given just weeks, but now they have at least until after the coronation.'" Scobie writes that despite the security risks, and "the prospect of grandchildren Archie and Lilibet not being able to visit in the future, King Charles is sticking firm to his eviction notice." According to a royal insider, “I think the King is just fed up with the entire situation."

Prince Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, were initially staying in Nottingham Cottage, on the grounds of Kensington Palace in London. Before the birth of their son, Archie Harrison, in 2019 they moved to Frogmore Cottage. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex currently live in California with their two children, Archie and Lilibet. The pair relocated to Meghan's home state of California in 2020 after stepping back as working members of the royal family. Frogmore Cottage was a gift to the couple from the late Queen. The UK home which is a 10-bedroom property on the grounds of Windsor Castle in Berkshire has been offered to the Duke of York, Prince Andrew. He was offered the smaller Frogmore Cottage when compared to the Royal Lodge mansion but is said to be “resisting,” according to BBC. The property was refurbished at an estimated cost of £2.4m in 2018-19. The cost was initially covered by taxpayers before being repaid in full by Prince Harry.
It looks like the tension between Harry and his family is continuing perhaps even more so after the release of Prince Harry's memoir Spare in January. It became the fastest-selling non-fiction book ever after shifting 1.43 million copies during its first day of sale in the UK, US, and Canada.
A source told PEOPLE that the couple will be invited to King Charles' May 6 coronation. "It is such a momentous occasion for Charles, and he would want his son to be at the coronation to witness it. He would like to have Harry back in the family. If they don't sort it out, it will always be part of the King's reign and how he has left his family disjointed. He has had a reputation as a distant parent, and it would be awful for him for that to continue," they said. Despite the allegations Prince Harry made, it seems the 74-year-old is eager for the situation to "calm down" in time for his coronation.
Royal historian Robert Lacey added, "Quite apart from [Charles'] paternal hope to reunite with his son, one of the jobs of the royal family is showing how to cope with the problems we all have in a human and thoughtful way. What will be a success for the family in the future is not reconciliation necessarily, but mutual acceptance of different ideas and priorities."
