I have had both my tubes removed due to ectopic pregnancy. I am now pregnant through natural frozen embryo tranfer, what chance is it likely to be in the wrong place

An ectopic pregnancy is

An ectopic pregnancy is defined as an pregnancy that implant outside the cavity of the womb. It can implant in the Fallopian tube (the most common type) , in the ovary, anywhere in the peritoneal cavity or in the cervical canal. Only the tubal pregnancy is relatively common, the other types are rare. So - without tubes, your odds are low.

In general, ectopic pregnancies in embryo transfers only occur about 2-5% of the time, but most of those occur in the tubes. Unless you have a physical reason that would make an ectopic more likely, you should not be at a higher risk than anyone else undergoing a similar procedure.
