In his explosive new documentary series The Me You Can't See, Prince Harry treated royal fans to a glimpse inside the stunning mansion where the Sussexes will become a family-of-four later this year.
Here Fabulous takes a look around the stunning £11m property Harry and Meghan traded in Frogmore Cottage for – from their stunning chic interiors to sprawling garden.
Since moving in last July, Meghan and Harry have treated fans to a glimpse of their multiple living spaces on several occasions – most recently during Harry's Apple+ mental health documentary series.
During an on-screen therapy session, the Duke was filmed sitting in a plush grey armchair which matches the couple's sofa.
Next to the armchair is a walnut coffee table with a trendy green lamp topped with a white linen shade.
Completing the minimalist look, the couple have opted for airy white curtains and added a bit of interest with some leaf-print cushions.
In another shot of the room, Harry and Oprah are seen sitting in tan leather armchairs overlooking the sprawling patio outside which leads onto the couple's luscious private garden.
Meanwhile in a separate seating area, the couple another grey sofa and a minimalist oak cabinet on display behind it.
In September 2020, Meghan made a surprise virtual appearance on America's Got Talent and showed off how her new living room was coming together.
Hanging on the wall behind the Duchess is a trio of canvases each featuring an illustrations of a nest.
Sitting on the shelf behind Meghan was a £47 Tubéreuse candle from luxury perfumer Diptyque which she placed next to a trendy black-and-white vase full of fresh green hydrangeas.
Rather than opting for a matching set, Meghan picked out scatter cushions with contrasting monochrome geometric designs.
To complete her coffee table, Meghan added a stack of "woke" books – including Women: The National Geographic Collection, Marc Hom’s Profiles and Annie Leibovitz's A Photographer’s Life.
But when Harry and Meghan spoke to Malala for International Day of the Girl in October, the Duchess appeared to have re-arranged their living room set-up again and placed a stack of books next to the Duke for the video call.
Two days later, Meghan gave her Zoom call background another refresh when she place some pink flowers and an unbranded candle in shot for her appearance on Fortune's exclusive Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit.
Considering it's where Meghan and Harry host most of their virtual calls, the couple's study is the area of their home royal fans are most familiar with.
A stunning stone fireplace sits in the middle of the room and the Duke and Duchess have a "I Love You California" print having above the mantelpiece.
The words refer to the state’s official anthem which was published in 1913, and later adopted by California 1951 and confirmed in 1987 as the sunshine state’s official song.
In the corner, Meghan and Harry have a trendy fiddle leaf fig tree which is thriving by the window.
Shortly after they first moved in, Meghan appeared on The 19th* Represents 2020 Virtual Summit and sat in a corner of the office they haven't shown to the public again.
For the discussion, Meghan sat in a vintage-looking, cream armchair which had mahogany-style wood framing that matched the dark window frames.
Next to her was an orchid placed on top of a glass-topped coffee table and fans caught a glimpse of the couple's perfectly maintained garden out of the window.
Meghan and Harry's incredible home is reportedly set within five acres of land – so it's hardly surprising that their garden is pretty impressive too.
Last October, the couple weighed in on the US election when they filmed a special message to voters outside their home.
The pair were filmed sitting on a bench in the middle of a neatly trimmed patch of grass.
Either side of them, there was well maintained flower beds and a large tree – which would later feature in their pregnancy photoshoot – loomed behind.
Nigerian-born British photographer Misan spoke to British Vogue following the baby announcement and revealed how the garden represented fertility in the black-and-white snap.
He said: “To be asked to help share this absolute joy after such an unimaginable loss and heartache is a marker of true friendship.
“With the tree of life behind them and the garden representing fertility, life and moving forward, they didn't need any direction, because they are, and always have been, waltzing through life together as absolute soulmates.”
