Meghan and Harry’s subtle ‘woke’ interior design changes revealed by eagle-eyed fans

Meghan and Harry’s subtle ‘woke’ interior design changes revealed by eagle-eyed fans

The couple, who have spoken out a number of issues in recent months, sometimes give fans a glimpse into their Californian home whilst appearing on camera. One thing admirers have noticed is how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex redesign their interior as time goes on.

In one instance, the couple had placed what appeared to be a huge chunk of amethyst in the centre of their mantelpiece.

On other occasions, the background included a candle by Diptyque worth nearly £50.

The Sussexes also appear to change their minds about which books they want to have on show.

The royal couple have rearranged their book collection at least three times, The Sun has claimed.

They most recently provided a look into their mansion in Montecito, Santa Barbara, during a video chat with Time100 Talks this week.

Viewers noticed one book on display was Women: The National Geographic Collection, which was placed upright.

It contains many photos providing an insight into the lives of women around the world, with commentary from the likes of Melinda Gates and New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern.

The National Geographic’s Women collection was on display on that occasion too, as was The Black Godfather, which tells the story of music executive Clarence Avant.

There was also interior design book Wood and Iron: Industrial Interiors.

The Sussexes’ book collection is also said to include a number of photography page-turners.

While the Duke and Duchess have given fans an insight into their home in some interviews, other have been taken outside.

In September, the royal couple were seen sitting on a bench in a lush green garden when they spoke to US broadcaster ABC about voting in the upcoming US election.

Sitting alongside her husband, Meghan Markle said: “Every four years we are told the same thing, that this is the most important election of our lifetime, but this one is.

“When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you matter, because you do and you deserve to be heard.”

Prince Harry, meanwhile, who cannot yet vote in the US, instead urged listeners to be wary of negativity online.

He also said listeners should “reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity” as the US election approaches.

The country is due to go to the polls on November 3 to vote in the next President of the United States.

Harry and Meghan, while encouraging followers to vote, have not explicitly endorsed any one political party.
