Harry and Meghan’s Frogmore House neighbours are issued with ‘dos and don’ts list’ to which bans them from talking to royals, asking to see Archie or petting their dogs.
Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan have allegedly issued their new neighbours at Frogmore Cottage a ‘dos and don’ts list’.
The issue was raised at a residents’ meeting for those living near the couple’s home on the Windsor estate by a ‘well-intentioned’ member of estate staff.
Residents living close to the royal couple on the Windsor estate also include royal staff, officials living in grace-and-favour houses and Crown Estate employees.
Neighbours were ordered not to strike up conversation with the pair or ask to see baby Archie.
They were also told to refrain from offering to babysit – or even stroke their dogs should they bound over.
One local remarked to The Sun last night: ‘It would be funny if it wasn’t so over the top.’
Another neighbour commented: ‘It’s extraordinary. We’ve never heard anything like it. Everyone who lives on the estate works for the royals and knows how to behave respectfully.
‘We aren’t told how to behave around the Queen like this. She’s very happy for people to greet her.’
However Palace officials last night said neither the Sussexes or their household made any request for any instructions to be given to locals.
A source said: ‘A well-intentioned member of estate staff offered guidance at a community meeting. Neither the couple or their household made any such request.’
Recall that The royal couple faced backlash over their insistence on privacy as they renovated their new home with £2.4 million of taxpayer’s cash. The total spent will reach £3 million once landscaping and gardening is completed.
