Prince Harry has paid back the cost of renovating Frogmore Cottage to the Sovereign Grant, the duke’s spokesman has announced.
The royal couple owed £2.4 million to taxpayers for renovating the Windsor Castle property, as part of an agreed deal after they stepped down as members of the Royal Family this year.
In May this year it was revealed that Harry and wife Meghan Markle had reached an agreement to pay £18,000 a month back into the Sovereign Grant.
At the rate of £216,000 a year, it was expected to take them 11 years to repay the British taxpayer. But on Monday it was announced the entire cost of the renovations has now been paid back in full.
Last week Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, deputy chair of parliament's Public Accounts Committee, said the agreement over Frogmore Cottage should be "modified" to pay the taxpayer back more quickly.
There were also calls for the couple to use the money from their lucrative deal with Netflix to pay back the £2.4m.
