Meghan Markle Follows in Princess Diana’s Footsteps When It Comes to Home Decor
Meghan Markle may not have had the opportunity to meet her mother-in-law, Princess Diana. But as it turns out, Markle has been following in Diana's footsteps, especially when it comes to her taste in home decor.
We recently got a glimpse into the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new home when Prince Harry teamed up with the organization WellChild to virtually speak with parents who are caring for seriously ill children. And although we couldn’t see too much of where Harry was video chatting from, we can assume (thanks to stay-at-home orders) it is the house where he, Meghan Markle and baby Archie are currently residing in Los Angeles.
What we did see from the clip is a beige wall and a wooden cabinet with some sort of white appliance (maybe a printer?). Either way, we’re getting some serious neutral vibes.
The 38-year-old duchess also participated in a video chat from the home, which revealed...even more beige.
And we couldn’t help but notice that the muted colors of the duke and duchess closely resemble the decor choices made by Harry’s late mother.
Princess Di showed off her interior design skills when she first moved into Kensington Palace after her wedding to Prince Charles. According to Town & Country, the princess worked closely with designer Dudley Poplak to create a home that reflected her specific tastes. The result? Neutral and muted colors with bright accents, including pale yellow walls, vibrant rugs and lots of family photos. A photo of Diana and Prince Charles seated in the drawing room of the palace in 1985 (below) shows off these neutrals and less-than-flashy colors.
Yup, looks like Meghan Markle is emulating her mother-in-law in more ways than one.
