Despite being at the heart of a royal estate the cottage has a countryside feel to it, with cobbled walkways and shrubs sprouting in the borders. A lemon tree can be seen near one of the doorways as Meghan – wearing a Barbour gilet, casual leggings and walking boots – threw some shapes for her husband.
Describing their home, Meghan said: ‘People thought we lived in a palace and we did. Well, a cottage in a palace.’
Harry said: ‘It had really low ceilings. I don’t know who was there before, must have been short.’
Meghan laughed, revealing Harry would ‘hit his head constantly because he is so tall’.

The décor at Nottingham Cottage brought a touch of minimalist countryside chic to the Kensington-based home, with shaggy cushions, throws and cream furnishings.

The initial tranche covered the couple’s courtship and romance, but many were left deeply unhappy about the programme’s full-on assault on the late Queen’s Commonwealth legacy, with some saying it seemed as if the couple want to ‘bring down the monarchy’.
Harry also let rip with a string of sly digs at his family, particularly his father and brother, including the suggestion that they had married not for love but to a woman who fitted ‘the mould’.
