See inside Meghan Markle's gorgeous living room

The Duchess of Sussex appeared in a video message on America's Got Talent

The Duchess of Sussex gave us a glimpse of her beautiful living room in her Santa Barbara home, as she made a surprise appearance on America's Got Talent on Wednesday.

Meghan, 39, sent a special video message during the show's finale to fan favourite Archie Williams after being touched by his heartbreaking story.

It marks the first time we've seen inside the Sussexes' lounge at their Montecito abode, and it certainly echoes the aesthetic we've come to know with Meghan from her former Toronto home.

The couple have opted for minimalist décor for their living room, with a cream sofa and neutral walls. Striped scatter cushions add texture to the space, along with three monochrome prints on the wall in the background.

An antique-looking sideboard can be seen behind the sofa with plenty of personal touches that we've come to associate with Meghan's interior style, including fresh flowers to add a splash of colour.

Back when Meghan ran her own lifestyle blog The Tig, she regularly spoke about her love of candles, so it's no surprise that there's a Diptyque Tubereuse scented candle on display. Three large candles on rustic-looking wooden holders can also be seen next to the designer home accessory.

Meghan has added finishing touches such as candles and flowers

The former Suits actress always had piles of books scattered throughout her Toronto home and she's given royal fans some insight into her latest favourite reads.

Meghan and Harry's coffee table books include Profiles by celebrity photographer Marc Hom, who has captured portraits of A-listers including Angelina Jolie, David Beckham and Michelle Obama.

The couple also own A Photographer's Life; 1990-2005 by Annie Leibovitz, the celebrity photographer who has captured portraits of the Queen, and Wood and Iron: Industrial Interiors, described as "a source of inspiration and guidance for those making their foray into the world of industrial style".

An impressive collection of books

Among the other books in the pile is The Black Godfather: The Clarence Avant Story, which is associated with the Netflix documentary series about the American music executive, entrepreneur and film producer.

Harry and Meghan have set up their own production company and recently signed a deal with the online streaming giant to make their own documentaries.
