However, Archie and Lilibet were well looked after by Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, and they would have plenty to keep them entertained at the family's £11.2million home, including an amazing adventure playground located in their back garden.

The vast play space is located on site within their private grounds, and photographs taken from former listings of the home while it was on the market show that he has every type of play equipment you could possibly think of: two slides, a climbing frame, a tightrope, a helter skelter, and two types of climbing wall.

Inside, there is also an incredible nursery that would have been ready for use by either Archie or Lilibet when the family moved in.

However, it is likely that Prince Harry and Meghan will have decorated the space, as they recently shared how they had put their own stamp on their home after moving there in summer 2020.

Meghan also explained that while they loved the appearance of their mansion when they were house hunting, they almost didn't go and view it as it was out of their budget at the time.

Speaking to The Cut, Meghan explained: "We didn’t have jobs, so we just were not going to come and see this house. It wasn’t possible. It’s like when I was younger and you’re window shopping — it’s like, I don’t want to go and look at all the things that I can’t afford. That doesn’t feel good."
