The couple reportedly lived in their LA home between 2011 and 2013, around the time that Meghan landed her big break in Suits, so she divided her time between Los Angeles and Toronto, Canada.

The home went up for sale for $1.8million (around £1.48million) in 2019 and at the time of sale, it was described in the listing by The Bienstock Group as a "rare colonial Hancock Park charmer with so much sunshine". The house has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a huge garden with al fresco dining area. Take a tour of where Meghan lived before she met Prince Harry…

Meghan's former home is so modern

The open plan living and dining room has a light and airy feel, similar to the colour palette she favoured in her Toronto home. With white walls and wooden flooring providing a blank canvas, jewel-toned cushions and artwork add a splash of colour.

The humble kitchen is also contemporary 

The colour palette spans throughout the kitchen, which has white cabinets, chic grey worktops and aluminium appliances. There is a small table for two to dine together, but additional seating can be found at the back of the living room as well as outdoors on the terrace.

A bedroom has the same pale grey and neutrals colour scheme as the rest of the house, but pink cushions and a painting on the walls add personality to the space, creating a welcoming environment for any guests.
