With their two children Archie Harrison and Lilibet Diana, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reside in a lavish $11 million mansion in the US. Until recently, they also had a home in the UK, Frogmore Cottage, but it has now been confirmed that King Charles has asked them to leave the property.
Here is everything we know about the Windsor residence, including all of its best interior shots.
Prior to the royal couple moving in, the house, which was previously five separate properties for estate workers, was transformed into a single five-bedroom residence in 2019. When the couple moved to the US, Princess Eugenie, Harry’s cousin, also resided there.
Frogmore Cottage’s kitchen
We were blown away when personal photos from the couple’s Netflix docuseries were used, including one of them in the incredible kitchen from the property in the teaser trailer.
Fans can almost completely see the charming country-style kitchen in the photograph, where the family is seated at a sizable marble-topped island with built-in cabinets and pendant lights hanging overhead. Open shelves with hanging saucepans are present, and cozy touches like plants, flowers, and artwork have been added to the kitchen area.
Frogmore Cottage’s bathroom
Another Netflix snippet gave an insight into bathtime with baby Archie when they were living at Frogmore. His proud parents watched on with smiles on their faces as Archie reached out of the bath with his hair wet from the tub.
The young child was relaxing in a roll-top bath, the kind that is frequently found in hotel rooms and has antique-style taps on one end. A glimpse of what appears to be a shower cubicle and a vanity unit with plush towels hanging by it are both visible behind the Sussexes.
Frogmore Cottage’s living room
Princess Eugenie provided fans with glimpses inside the home while she was residing there as she shared updates on her son. It is evident that she made some personal additions to the interiors.
For instance, Eugenie was shown in the living room relaxing on a cream sofa in front of a blue bookshelf. One small green cushion with the individualized message: “August born in February” stood out among the intricate blue and white patterns and red fluffy trimmed designs that surrounded her.
The residence was previously occupied by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in April 2019, just before the birth of their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. After deciding to take a break from royal duties, they initially kept the property as their base in the UK.
The Grade II-listed Frogmore House, where the royal couple held their wedding reception in May 2018, and an amazing lake are both in front of it. Five bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, and a former nursery for Archie are said to be located inside.
The Sovereign Grant reported spending £2.4 million renovating the house in 2019, and the couple later paid back the money.
Frogmore Cottage’s garden
In the garden, Meghan is likely to have a number of the lemon-yellow Chrysanthemums that bear Archie’s name. As part of a custom that mandates that royal family members receive a namesake variety of the flower, Archie was given the honorary flower in remembrance of the blossoms that adorned Westminster Abbey on the day that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were wed in 1947.
They also have a statue of a dog in the garden as a special tribute to one of their family members.
Meghan may have noticed Vicky’s distinctive sense of style and what she observed at the Soho House clubs in Frogmore Cottage. The clubs’ decor draws inspiration from the 1920s and 1930s, and they feature opulent furnishings like velvet sofas and chandeliers—of course, Meghan and Harry will have added their own touches.
Prior to now, Vicky said to Soho House, “Private residences are very different. The Soho House aesthetic is what attracts clients to us, but you have to customize it for the family or whoever lives there in their space; it’s not something you can pick up off the shelf.”
Both Harry and Meghan are avid art admirers. During their courtship, Harry gave Meghan a sentimental canvas by British artist Van Donna, “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love,” as a gift. Additionally, it’s thought that the Queen gave Eugenie and Jack a collection of paintings from her own personal collection, which they can now admire.
