Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not lived in Frogmore Cottage since they stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family in 2020. But their historic first home was frequently featured in the opening episodes of their new Netflix series.
Last week, the trailer for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s six-part Netflix show offered a glimpse inside the glamorous kitchen of their former UK residence, where the couple celebrated their daughter Lilibet’s first birthday in June this year while visiting as part of the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The first three episodes of the Netflix series, released today, offered more shots of the couple in the trendy kitchen of the Grade-II listed five-bedroom property.
The property famously received a £2.4million renovation in 2019, just months before the couple announced they were stepping down as senior working royals and relocating to Montecito, California.
In the first episode of the show, there were some black and white snaps from March 2020 which showed Harry and Meghan after they returned home from the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall in London as part of their “farewell tour”.
However, there were also more colour shots of the kitchen, which boasts a marble-topped island at its centre, herringbone wooden flooring and rustic brick feature walls.
In the shot, Meghan was seen painting her nails while Harry was eating from a yoghurt pot. The £2.4million of renovation costs appeared to be spent on a spacious breakfast bar, framed portraits on the walls, an upgraded sink, industrial lighting, bonus counter space, panelled doors, and a hanging rail.
Interiors Therapist and Feng Shui consultant Suzanne Roynon suspects elements of Feng Shui may have been incorporated into Frogmore Cottage since the renovations were completed.
She claimed: “In Feng Shui terms, after the significant renovations of 2019, Frogmore Cottage would be regarded as a ‘Bad for People/Good for Money’ property. The couple had been riding high in public opinion after their wedding in May 2018.
“But at the time of their move to Frogmore their popularity waned and stories of a rift between the couple and other members of the Royal Family emerged.
“Tension and stress is something we see all the time in Feng Shui when people live in or move into a property which isn’t supportive; the energy of a home can make or break a family when it isn’t providing the balance and harmony they need.
“A ‘Bad for People’ property can cause divorce, illness, emotional and mental health issues and a feeling of total overwhelm, almost as though the world is ‘out to get you’.
“It’s easily fixed with the right interventions, but even the beautiful interior design scheme created by Vicky Charles of Soho Farmhouse renown, won’t in itself have been sufficient to iron out the pockets of negativity within Frogmore Cottage.”

According to Ms Roynon, Harry and Meghan were put under “immense pressure” when living at Frogmore Cottage.
She opined: “This ‘Bad for People’ energy will have put immense pressure on the couple and left a sour taste as they settled in.
“I imagine the tension this created and the impact on their well-being ultimately resulted in their painful decision to move abroad to build a new life primarily as private citizens.
“But what can Frogmore Cottage tell us? Harry and Meghan are clearly drawn to neutral colours which are known to provide a sense of calm and security.”
Princess Eugenie moved into the property in 2021 after the birth of her son August Brooksbank. The family now split their time between Portugal and Nottingham Cottage when in the UK.
The expert suggested: “From the few images available of the interior of Frogmore Cottage on Princess Eugenie’s Instagram feed, and by comparing the décor with the Duke and Duchess’s new home in Montecito, California, both couples are comfortable with a palette of white, cream and grey.”
Ms Roynon added: “Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will have added their own personal touches to the space, but the original relaxed and elegant styling decisions made by Meghan and Harry are likely to remain at the core of the design scheme.
“They provide a tasteful, soft base which would work in any home.”
