The Duchess of Sussex (formerly Meghan Markle) has shaken the British (and Canadian!) royal family since her marriage to Prince Harry.\nFrom subtly flaunting royal fashion protocol to impressing (even annoying) her family members with her work ethic, the new Duchess has injected some energy into the famously conservative Windsor family. Maybe it's her North American sensibilities.\nSo it's not surprising that Markle also seems to have made her mark when it comes to the couple's real estate investments.\nALSO READ: The Government Of Canada Is Now Warning That H1N1 Flu Is Back And The Rate Of Confirmed Cases Is Higher Than Ever\nTL;DR The Sun has published a leaked photo of Meghan and Harry's countryside home and it is refreshingly simple.\nA photo leaked to the Sun offers the first glimpse of the couple's life beyond the trappings of the official royal residences at Kensington Palace. This is Meghan and Harry's countryside escape:\nRoyal excl: first picture of the Duke & Duchess of Sussex’s Cotswold pad. It’s a gorgeous £2.5million Grade II listed farmhouse and barn conversion. pic.twitter.com/IL11GMdcVC\n— Emily Andrews (@byEmilyAndrews) January 9, 2019\nThe simple structure is refreshing in its plainness, especially in contrast to Kensington:\n🎄🌟 pic.twitter.com/Y9DPAAqHb0\n— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) December 15, 2018\nAccording to the Sun, the property includes a modest farmhouse and renovated barn, presumably what is pictured above.\nDespite its appearance, however, the home is still £2.5 million, or about $4,228,190 (CAD).\nAway from the protocol and weight of history associated with the lofty architecture of royal residences, this home appears to be a space where the couple can relax in isolation.\nThis may be the closest Meghan and Harry get to normality (though $4,228,190 is hardly "normal").\nThe farm, located in the Cotswold area of Oxfordshire in England, will likely be a refuge for the couple as they head into trying times.\nAmid rumours that Meghan does not get along with the Duchess of Cambridge (formerly Kate Middleton), she and Harry have reportedly decided to quit their Kensington Palace residence.\n@kensingtonroyalembedded via\nThe couple will also welcome their first child this year. Perhaps this Cotswold home will be a place for the new family to bond outside the critical gaze of invasive reporters.\nStay tuned.
