Duchess Meghan is officially on maternity leave and her beau Prince Harry has pared down his royal engagements, so the two finally found some time to enjoy a chic babymoon! The Sussexes had a quick, well-deserved reprise from the limelight, and reportedly spent some time at one of Hampshire’s most luxurious hotels, the Georgian-era home known as Heckfield Place.
A source opened up toThe Sun's royal reporter Emily Andrews about the duo’s three-day getaway. “They wanted total rest and relaxation, and Meghan was really attracted to the organic ethos of the hotel which produces much of its own food on an on-site farm,” they said. “It was very chilled. They went for walks in their wellies, Meghan sat on a love-swing hung from a tree and they ate delicious food. She particularly enjoyed the hotel’s signature chocolate-coated candied orange and roasted home-grown vegetables.”
It’s been said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent some quality time together in luxury hotel's Long Room. Ringing in at $17,400 a night, the holiday promised to be a relaxing escape from the city in the Georgian family home, which has been “lovingly restored from its classic origins and rewoven into 400 acres of secluded Hampshire landscape,” according to its website. Their room, in particular, boasts a full kitchen, terrace, dining room, fireplaces, a guest room and their very own Guest Keeper (referred to as “Heckfield’s version of a butler.”).
It appears to be the perfect treat for the soon-to-be parents, who have just moved into their new home of Frogmore Cottage. Perhaps the vacation provided an opportunity to put final touches on their new space as they await Baby Sussex’s imminent arrival.
