- Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, will soon move into Frogmore Cottage, Windsor
- The mother-to-be frequently shared snaps of her former home in Toronto
- Recently resurfaced images hint at what she might plump for in her new place
- Meghan loves white furniture, fresh flowers and stylish coffee table books
It is unlikely the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will ever throw open the doors to their new home, but these photos offer a hint at what their private oasis at Frogmore Cottage might look like inside.
The snaps show the two-storey Toronto house that mother-to-be Meghan, 37, called home before she relocated to London to be with Prince Harry, 34.
The Duchess lived in the rented property while filming US legal drama Suits and would often share photos of the clean, feminine interiors on Instagram before shutting down her account.
The recently resurfaced images from the account provide some insight into Meghan’s tastes and interior preferences and offer some idea of what she might plump for when it comes to redecorating the cottage.

Despite having dogs with muddy paws, the actress bravely opted for a white couch in her living space with a grey striped throw from the luxury textiles brand Pamuk and Co.
The brand specialises in traditional Turkish ‘towels’ made from high quality cotton, that can also be used as shawls, yoga mats, throws and baby mats and sell for a very reasonably 50 Canadian dollars or around £30.
