When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moved out of Frogmore Cottage and moved to America, try as they may to prove otherwise, the majority saw it as a downgrade. After all, where would they find an abode that has only served royalty since 1801? While that holds true, the Sussexes have found themselves a home that, as the records say, they fell in love with at first sight. And one look at the heart of the house, it becomes clear why that was the case.

The Harry & Meghan docuseries got embroiled in controversy and claims of factual inaccuracy. However, there is one element that did not cease to amaze fans in every frame. While a lot of it reflected on their time at the Nottingham Cottage, it also gave a glimpse of their not-so-humble abode in Montecito. And the kitchen, with its perfect blend of vintage and modern, emerged as a star.

As reported by Hello, Sussex’s mansion was listed on Giggster. This was before what Prince Harry describes in his memoir as “took out a mortgage and in July 2020 we moved in.” Comparing the differences between the Giggster pictures and the Netflix docuseries, the changes are pretty eye-catching.

However, its large space occupying two dining tables is not even the best of its qualities. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s kitchen has two islands and even a fireplace.
