As she has many times before, Meghan Markle sent the internet into a frenzy earlier today when she released a video discussing her new charity initiative, 40×40, in honor of her 40th birthday. She’s challenging 40 friends to mentor women for 40 minutes, in response to the fact that the COVID-19 crisis has caused large numbers of women around the world to leave their jobs, and new research showing that they are less likely to return to work than men.
For our purposes at AD, one exciting bonus to this admirable cause was that we finally got a real peek inside the Montecito, California, home Meghan shares with Prince Harry and their kids, 2-year-old Archie and 2-month-old Lilibet. From the corner of the home we saw, it appears the Duke and Duchess are fond of a neutral color palette, plenty of texture, plants, and sentimental items like photos of their kids.
Back in March, the couple showed off their backyard chicken coop during their explosive interview with fellow Montecito resident Oprah Winfrey, but kept the rest of their home off camera. The trio sat on a patio in an undisclosed location (some reports stated that it was the home of a mutual neighbor), in outdoor club chairs made by Christopher Knight Home (yes, the same guy from The Brady Bunch), which promptly sold out.
This time around, Meghan sat at what appears to be a dining room table used as a desk (glad we aren’t the only ones doing this!) in front of a stone fireplace. From her numerous desk accessories to the Hermès throw blanket draped across one of her chairs to her Beagle’s adorable dog bed and bowl, the video offers plenty of style inspiration. Below, we’ve rounded up some household items that evoke the Duchess of Sussex’s signature flair.
