• Prince Harry has taken a step towards family
  • He has renewed his lease on Frogmore Cottage
  • This also has a symbolic meaning for the royal

Although Prince Harry (37) now lives with his family in the United States, he remains connected to the royal family. The Telegraph reports that Harry has renewed his lease on Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

He and his wife Meghan, 40, lived there with son Archie, 2, before the couple stepped back as senior working royals and re-located to the United States. The contract would have expired on March 31, however, now it appears that Harry has extended it. This is reportedly, mainly for practical reasons.

This is why Prince Harry decided to extend the lease

Prince Harry is the third adult in line to serve on the Council of State. In this task, Harry can support his grandmother (95) and take over some of her tasks when she is ill or abroad. Councilors of state are usually spouses of a monarch and the next four adult royals in the line of succession to the throne. However, in order to hold this position, one must also be a resident of the UK.

With the renewal of his lease, Harry can continue to serve as Councilor of State. It also gives the Prince and his family the option of returning to Britain for a longer period of time. But the lease also has a symbolic meaning.

Although Harry and Meghan no longer work for the royal family, they are showing royals and fans that they still have close ties to Britain and the royal family. Harry doesn't seem to want to give up his former home and family entirely. That became very clear recently when Prince Harry made a statement about his lawyers.

As the Mail on Sunday reported, the Prince doesn't feel safe for himself or his family when they return to the UK. The statement read that Harry "inherited a security risk at birth, for life," and they feel this hasn't been upheld in recent months. 

Unknown Facts About Prince Harry

After the Mail on Sunday broke the news, Prince Harry's lawyers issued a statement defending his decision: "[The duke] does not feel safe when he is in the U.K. given the security arrangements applied to him.” She added, “It goes without saying that he does want to come back to see family and friends and to continue to support the charities that are so close to his heart. Most of all, this is—and always will be—his home."
