Snaps from INSIDE the Queen’s private playhouse: Harry and Meghan are seen in Netflix show sipping tea in late monarch’s private ‘cottage’ where she used to play with Princess Margaret as a child
- The controversial documentary shows the couple in the little ‘Welsh Cottage’
- The cottage is in Windsor, where young Queen and Princess Margaret played
- Unlikely that royal household gave couple permission to hand pictures to Netflix

But Harry and Meghan’s Netflix documentary seems to disregard the privacy of the royal estate.
