Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have some new neighbours after a set of travellers set up camp near their new home.

Some 15 vehicles parked on the grass outside Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor, where Meghan and Harry are living with their newborn son Archie.

Five caravans pulled up on the green, along with a range of pick-up trucks and cars, yesterday afternoon.

Police and security guards soon arrived at the scene and the group left within an hour, according to The Sun . 

It is believed the same group had been booted off another site in Windsor earlier in the afternoon.

Witness Jeff Healey, 64, said: “I was having a drink in the pub when they started pulling up on The Long Walk.

“They realised they couldn’t stay when police arrived. It probably took under an hour.”

A police spokesman told the newspaper that officers were called to the scene at around 2.50pm over an unauthorised camp in Kings Road, Windsor.

Thames Valley Police confirmed that the travellers had left the site.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved from west London to Frogmore Cottage earlier this year. 

The home has more than enough space for the Sussex family, with a nursery for Archie and 10 bedrooms.

It is half a mile south of Windsor Castle, the Queen's summer residence, and St George's Chapel, where Harry and Meghan tied the knot in May last year.
