Since stepping down as senior royals at the start of the year, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have moved their family to Santa Barbara, California, about 100 miles north from Los Angeles. Though the Sussexes keep their family life private, Markle did let fans have a peek inside her new space—and it’s just as classy and regal as one would expect.

Markle appeared on a Zoom conference for the U.K.-based fashion charity Smart Works to celebrate the one-year anniversary of her workwear capsule collection called Smart Set, which was compiled for women who are reentering the workforce. 

The Duchess chimed into the chat with three women who took advantage of what Smart Works has to offer, and she did so from inside her brand new Santa Barbara abode. She set up in front of a massive stone fireplace adorned with a vintage print of the cover sheet for the “I Love You, California” sheet music.

The room in which Markle is sat is done up with half-wall paneling and white-coated walls. The windows of the home are done in black, adding a nice contrast to the interior decor. She also has a potted fiddle-leaf fig tree in the corner of the space, which is lit with small pedestal lamps on the fireplace mantel.

Though this is the smallest of sneak peeks, and probably one of the only times we’ll see inside Meghan and Harry’s home, so far, the space looks great—grand, even. But, what else would one expect from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex? They may not be senior royals anymore, but that doesn’t mean their space isn’t fit for a prince and princess.
