They may be accustomed to life in lavish royal residences like Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, and the newly-renovated Frogmore Cottage, but the royal family love a bargain just as much as they rest of us! From the Duchess of Sussex’s £35 teapot to the Duchess of Cambridge’s high street Zara Home accessories, discover the homeware brands the royal family love…
Meghan reportedly took inspiration from the décor at Soho House when designing her home at Frogmore Cottage with Prince Harry, so it’s little surprise she owns pieces from their homeware label, Soho Home. The Duchess owns pieces from the Country House collection, including teacups and saucers (£12 each), and a large teapot (£35). Other pieces in the range are available for as little as £8, making them an affordable way for anyone to incorporate Meghan's style into their home.
The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted shopping in Zara Home ahead of the birth of Princess Charlotte in 2015. Kate reportedly bought a doormat, dark blue bath towels and an array of picnic pieces, including some padded blue and white gingham hampers, picnic cutlery and polka dot tumblers. Towels from the store are available for as little as £3.99, while doormats cost from £19.99, proving Kate is as thrifty with her homeware as she is with her clothes.
