Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will reportedly split their time between Portugal and Frogmore Cottage, as Brooksbank landed a new job with property tycoon Mike Meldman.

A source close to the couple shared, "Jack is now working for Mike Meldman and they are splitting their time between Portugal and London." The Brooksbanks will spend a particular time of their year at the CostaTerra Golf and Ocean Club, a lavish resort an hour south of Lisbon on Portugal's Atlantic coast. According to the Telegraph, it comes after Brooksbank, 36, got a job with Meldman, a longstanding business partner of George Clooney. Meldman acquired the 722-acre plot, which runs along the Atlantic coast, in 2019, with an initial £435 million ($548 million) investment.

Clooney, his human rights lawyer wife Amal, and their four-year-old twins Ella and Alexander may become the Brooksbanks' neighbors after they are reportedly planning to buy a plot on the 300-home, 722-acre development.

Eugenie, 32, is expected to continue working as a director for the London art gallery Hauser & Wirth on a hybrid basis. Eugenie and Jack, with their one-year-old son, August, will continue to stay at Frogmore when they are back in the United Kingdom. Eugenie's husband had previously worked for tequila brand Casamigos, which the actor helped establish. However, it was sold to Diageo in 2017 for £550 million ($693 million). He is currently working for Meldman's Discovery Land Company, which has been developing CostaTerra since 2019.

Meanwhile, according to a royal expert, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are staying at Frogmore to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee. The Sussexes also renewed their lease on the property, which will enable them to visit as much as they want and "cause complete chaos." Royal author Angela Levin believed the decision of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to renew their lease on the property could be linked to their million-dollar deal with Netflix to film a documentary about their life.

"One is that they need to get back within the Royal Family so that Netflix is happy and they can do some good filming," she told Daily Mail. "With this lease they'll be able to come back and forth much as they want and cause complete chaos. Meghan didn't even like Frogmore. It only has five bedrooms unlike their mansion in Los Angeles. So I don't think they'll be planning on staying there for long."
