Princess Eugenie moves to Portugal after millionaire offer

Written By Lara Silva

According to The Mirror, Princess Eugenie of England is moving to Portugal with her husband and son. The family is moving to Melides, Setubal after Jack Brooksbank, Princess Eugenie’s husband accepted a job with the multimillionaire property tycoon, Mike Meldrum.

The couple will reportedly be splitting their time between London and the CostaTerra Golf and Ocean Club in Setubal, along with their one year old son August.

While in the UK, Princess Eugenie, Jack, and August will be living at Ivy Cottage in Kensington Palace, reports the Telegraph. The Princess will remain working at the art gallery Hauser & Wirth through flexible hybrid work. 

Mike Meldrum co-founded the tequila company Casamigos with George Clooney, to which Jack is a brand ambassador. Princess Eugenie’s husband Jack will now join Mike Meldrum in one of his real estate ventures, the CostaTerra & Ocean Club in Comporta, Setubal where the couple will live. John will be reportedly working on the sales, marketing, and promotion of the resort. 

With around 300 residences in a 295-hectare community, the resort will feature access to a beach, tennis courts, restaurant, bars, as well as an 18-hole golf course. The large property is a luxurious private community, with house prices starting at 4 million euros for a custom lot. 

The family has lived in Frogmore Cottage in Windsor for the last two years, the official residence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who no longer live in the UK.

Princess Eugenie and Jack’s move coincides with reports that Harry and Meghan who are living in California have renewed their lease on Frogmore Cottage. The media is speculating whether the couple will be spending more time in the UK. Frogmore cottage underwent renovations in 2019, converting the property from separate apartments to a family home. 

Princess Eugenie is the granddaughter of the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II, and the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew. Jack Brooksbank and Princess Eugenie have been married for four years.
