Since relocating to Montecito in 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have shared a few glimpses into their idyllic home life.
Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet live with the Sussexes on their sprawling £11 million estate, which in a new photo Meghan shared on Mother’s Day appears to be more idyllic than ever.
Meghan reposted a photo of herself and her friend Kelly McKee Zajfen that Kelly had shared as a tribute to Meghan on the couple’s Archewell Instagram account (@archewell_sussex_).
The two are posed together while wearing matching community motherhood T-shirts, with a picture-perfect garden serving as the backdrop. There are lush trees, a perfectly mowed lawn, and a flower bed filled with flourishing shrubbery.
Although it hasn’t been confirmed, it seems likely that the picture was taken in the royals’ backyard because of how familiar the surroundings are.
The couple previously posed in their outdoor space for their TIME cover in 2021, giving us a glimpse of their envious garden.
Additionally, their Harry & Meghan Netflix documentary featured numerous shots of their seemingly endless garden.
When Archie was a baby, Harry carried him and showed him the flowers blooming in their grounds. This sweet moment was captured on camera.
Another family moment was when Harry, Doria, and a pregnant Meghan organized an Easter egg hunt for their son Archie.
The trail was set up in the grounds of their expansive private estate, which included a stream and lovely flowerbeds.
A family swimming pool, a chicken coop, and a sizable adventure playground perfect for kids are also located on the 7.38 acres of land.
The Duchess has previously admitted they were instantly smitten with the property. “We did everything we could to get this house,” Meghan said to The Cut. “Because you enter and leave… Joy. then let out a breath. also peace. It’s therapeutic. You sense freedom.
Do Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a UK home?
The Sussexes no longer have an official residence in the UK as they recently terminated their lease on Frogmore Cottage, which is located in Windsor. Before moving to Canada and then Montecito, Harry and Meghan raised Archie there for his first few months of life.
The Netflix documentary also gave viewers a peek inside their former house, allowing them to see its incredible kitchen and hotel-quality bathroom while Archie was taking a bath. Although much smaller than their current enormous estate, it is undoubtedly very beautiful.
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.
The Sovereign Grant reported spending £2.4 million renovating the house in 2019, and the couple later paid back the money.
Despite rumors that King Charles had asked his brother Prince Andrew to leave Royal Lodge and move into the nearby cottage, it is believed the property is still empty.
