Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's countryside home is truly fit for a Duke and Duchess.
Photos of the couple's Cotswold Hills estate surfaced on Wednesday (January 9), showing the $3 million mansion in all of its glory. According to The Sun, the home has four bedrooms — one of which serves as a dressing room — an "upper kitchen," a "lower kitchen," a sitting area with floor-to-ceiling windows, a heated outdoor seating area, and a separate two-bedroom cottage for the couple's staff. (You know, the bare necessities)
While the estate is not their main residence — the two currently live in a two-bedroom home, Nottingham Cottage, on the Kensington Palace grounds — Meghan and Harry are apparently in love with their home away from home. "It’s a fabulous place with stunning views and extraordinarily private," a source told The Sun. "It’s set in a small bowl of beautiful countryside so is not overlooked in any way. Meghan adores the area. She and Harry love walking the dogs there, and they can entertain their friends in complete solitude."
Meghan and Harry reportedly signed a two-year lease on the Cotswolds property right before their royal wedding in May. The two are said to have traveled there after they tied the knot. "They spend a lot of time in the Cotswolds, more than people realize," " a source told Vanity Fair in August. "They are in the country way more than they are in London and they are enjoying a low-key and very domesticated start to married life."
As royal fans know, the couple is gearing up to move out of their small Nottingham Cottage into the sprawling Frogmore Cottage on Windsor Estate. The property is currently under renovation as the two prepare to welcome their first child together.
