Although Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been living in their California home since July, they have yet to really give fans a peek at the inside, until recently.

The former royals purchased a Mediterranean style mansion in Montecito, Calif. for $14.65 million in July. The home reportedly boasts nine bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, and a two bedroom guest house on the property.

On Saturday, Markle gave followers a peek into her home as she chatted on Instagram Live with Smart Works, a company that provides unemployed women with professional clothing and training for job interviews. The live stream commemorated the one-year anniversary of Markle’s collaboration with the company on a clothing collection.

One year ago, Smart Works announced the launch of The Smart Set Capsule Collection with The Duchess of Sussex. ⠀ The collection was designed to create a perfect working wardrobe for Smart Works clients. ⠀ With over 3,000 clients coming to Smart Works in the last year and 1,000 women taking pieces, the collection has proved to be invaluable. ⠀ In particular it has played an important role in ensuring the success of the new virtual service which was launched as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. ⠀ To celebrate the first anniversary, The Duchess of Sussex sat down to speak to Karla, Charlene and Agnieszka, three previous clients, to see how their time at Smart Works has helped transform their lives.   ⠀ After listening to their stories, The Duchess of Sussex said, “People can say that so much of smart works is about the clothes themselves but it's really not … all of that stuff is the exterior but it's what it does for you on the inside that ends up being the best accessory. It’s the confidence, it's what is built within, that is the piece that you walk out of that room with and walk into the interview with.” ⠀ Thank you to everyone to bought a piece of the collection and the retailers who made it possible @marksandspencerfashionpr @johnlewisandpartners , @insidejigsaw and @mishanonoo . ⠀ To find out more and hear from our clients and CEO head to the link in our bio.

In the background of Markle’s shot, viewers spotted her beautiful tan stone fireplace, white walls, a fiddle leaf fig plant, and a poster print.

The print is mostly out of frame, but sleuthing viewers were able to figure out what was printed on the poster. The poster depicts a bear hugging the state of California with the words “I love you California,” on the bottom.

The poster is from an Etsy shop called Nicholas and Riley, and though it is not available for purchase currently, similar vintage art on their page could run you anywhere from $400 to $5,200.
