Inside Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh and Prince Edward’s £30million home

The lease that Prince Edward and Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh have with The Crown Estate has been renewed for another 150 years, meaning they will remain at Bagshot Park in Surrey for the foreseeable future. Living with them is their son James, Earl of Wessex, and their daughter Lady Louise, who visits when she is home from Scotland’s St Andrew’s University.

Kate Middleton and Prince William reside nearby for family visits now they have moved to Windsor.

When Her Late Majesty was alive, the Duchess of Edinburgh told Sky News: “We’re a lot more fortunate because we live so close to the Queen, so when she spends a lot of time at Windsor on the weekends, our children are more fortunate because they can go over and have tea with her on a regular basis.”

The Grade II-listed structure, which was dismantled and rebuilt in 1879, is estimated to be worth £30million. The property is situated inside 51 acres of land.

A magnificent conservatory with views of Sophie and Edward’s grounds has been unveiled in the past.

From these pictures it is clear that Bagshot Park has a large dining table, a barbecue, and walls made of terracotta bricks.

Sophie previously welcomed BBC reporter Naga Munchetty into a beautiful room that was furnished with green striped upholstered chairs and a complementary green carpet.

The room also came equipped with numerous antique sideboards, a gorgeous marble fireplace, a gold-edged mirror, and priceless artwork.

While he was formally inaugurating the NHS Nightingale Hospital in Bristol, Prince Edward unintentionally posted a picture of his home office.

It had carved wooden walls and a wall-to-ceiling wooden bookshelf with several trinkets and framed pictures.

One video showed Sophie standing in front of a bookcase stocked with a wide selection of DVDs, books, and games as she presented her advice and resources for home-schooling children when UK schools were closed during the pandemic.

This gave viewers an idea of how the family likes to spend their free time at home.

When Sophie published another video of her work, fans might have had a glimpse into the largest room in the family house.

It had two glass side tables with brass legs, two massive double doors with carved hardwood walls, and brass knobs.

A desk lamp with a white shade, many ornaments, a silver-framed photograph, and a small pot of cream orchids were all present on one table, while a trinket box appeared to be on the other.

As Sophie recorded herself making scones, she showed more of the kitchen than ever before.

It displayed sage green walls, stylish white cabinets, and matching white marble countertops.

Sophie and Edward appear to have a second kitchen as well. The Duchess attended a video meeting with Thames Valley Air Ambulance, giving fans a glimpse inside Bagshot Park once again.

The mother of two was seated in a corner of the room next to open shelves that had a phone and several vases and decorations on show.

Behind the Duchess, glass-fronted cabinets displaying some of their fine china, including a variety of teapots, teacups, and saucers on glass shelving, look to have a traditional dark navy colour scheme.

The grounds, which span 51 acres and include a private lake and many stables, are similarly spectacular. Fans could see the exterior of the property during #ClapForOurCarers in 2020 when Sophie and Edward recorded themselves clapping outside a set of glass doors.
