For immediate release
Responding to reports that Harry and Meghan have paid back the money for Frogmore Cottage, Joe Ventre, digital campaign manager at the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said:
“At long last the California couple have coughed up the cash.
“This was a hard-fought win for taxpayers, who were furious to see Frogmore upgraded at public expense before the couple swanned off and dodged the bill with a decade-long payback plan.
“This royal refund is exactly what should have happened in the first place.”
