It is possible that it is only being shuttered for the time being due to the couple spending an extended period of time in Canada right now. When they return to the UK later this year, then the cottage could be reopened and key live-in staff would return to their original duties.
While Harry is dealing with the fallout in the UK, Meghan has already returned to Canada with their 8-month-old son, Archie. Their two dogs are also with Meghan on Vancouver Island.
Meanwhile, the Royal Family and senior officials are trying to create the transition process that will support this radical new change. Major points have been discussed, but there are many finer details that still need to be worked out.
