Meghan Markle: Inside the modern property where she lived before she met Prince Harry


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry currently live at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, where they moved just before the birth of their son, Archie Harrison, two months. Previously living at Kensington Palace in London, the Windsor cottage had lots of renovations before the couple set up camp. Meghan has been married to the Duke of Sussex since 19 May 2018 and they wed just six months after announcing their engagement. Before moving to the UK with Prince Harry, the Duchess lived in Toronto, Canada, where she filmed the US legal drama, Suits.

What was her house like?

Originally from Los Angeles, California, Meghan made the move to Canada for work before she met Prince Harry.

During this time, she lived in a stunning property and would often share pictures online giving a glimpse inside her house.

Recently, unearthed pictures from her former home were revealed on an ITV documentary, Secrets of the Royal Babies: Meghan and Harry.

Viewers were treated to a couple of snaps supplied by an estate agency which gave a look inside her light and airy former accommodation.

One photograph shows an open plan dining room and sitting area which was spacious and modern.

The room had white walls and wooden floors with grey and black furniture with purple curtains.

The Duchess showed off her appreciation of artwork as there were two large painting pinned on the wall.

The grey and minimalist theme continued throughout the property and Meghan also used this in her bedroom.

A photo of her bedroom revealed large windows, grey walls and a cream carpet with a patterned rug.

Her bedding was grey and white and the minimalist room was lit up by several lamps placed around it.

Now, the Duchess lives in Frogmore Cottage with Prince Harry and their son, Archie Harrison. 

After renovations, the property is said to have a modern feel and the nursery is believed to be decorated with a neutral black and white theme.

The royal couple recently moved out of Kensington Palace, where Kate Middleton and Prince William still live.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have classic decor in their property with gold furniture and lots of artwork.

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.

Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.


Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.


In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
