The Princess of York and the Duke of Sussex are incredibly close

Princess Eugenie is said to be returning to the UK, just as reports have surfaced about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle house hunting over on this side of the pond.

The Princess of York and her husband Jack Brooksbank intend to return to the UK from Portugal, after their status within the Royal Family has been revitalised.

Eugenie "felt she had to get away" and felt "abandoned" by the Royal Family during the scandal that unfolded around her father Prince Andrew.

But the couple are now prepared to leave Portugal, having grown "rather homesick" and wanting to take on more responsibilities.

A source claimed: “Eugenie won’t be able to fulfil her roles if she spends so much time abroad.

“So, she’s decided to spend more and more time in the UK, slowly transitioning to a permanent move back.”

There aren't many senior royals currently working in King Charles's reduced monarchy.

Therefore, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice could be utilised for future royal engagements.

The source also told OK!: “There are plans to increase her roles with the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and other worthy charities.

“Official royal engagements are also being discussed where she will step in for senior royals if they are unable to attend.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who moved abroad three years ago, are said to be house-hunting in the UK.

Prince Harry has always had a close friendship with his cousin Eugenie.

The duke reportedly wants to have a permanent base in Britain, after he was evicted from Frogmore Cottage earlier this year.

During a quick visit to the UK in September, Prince Harry asked to stay in a room at Windsor Castle.

However, because the Royal Family was not given enough notice, the Duke of Sussex's request was turned down.

Meghan Markle, on the other hand, does not want to leave California.

A source told Heat Magazine: "Meghan’s so happy to be back in California, she can’t imagine leaving.”
