Prince Harry treats Meghan to country retreat ‘babymoon’ weeks before royal baby arrives

It's just weeks before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcome their first child, and according to reports, Prince Harry whisked his wife away to a relaxed country hotel for a break before the birth.

According to The Sun, the couple spent three nights on a ‘babymoon’ at Heckfield Place in Hampshire, in what could be their last trip before becoming parents. Reportedly, Harry and Meghan are said to have enjoyed romantic walks and fire lit dinners, before returning to their Signature Long Room, which features its own dining room and two private terraces.

A source told the publication, “Meghan is only a couple of weeks away from giving birth, so Harry really wanted to treat her.

“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 at an on-site farm.”

Detailing how the Sussexes fared the recent unpredictable weather during their romantic activities, the source added, “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.”

The hotel, where rooms start from £300-a-night, is owned by billionaire Gerald Chan, and includes its own Bodyism studio and in-house restaurant run by Michelin star chef Skye Gyngell.

However, the royal couple apparently avoided the restaurant, instead opting to eat in the privacy of their own room.

The news comes after it was announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have now officially left Kensington Palace and moved into their new home in Windsor, Frogmore Cottage.

Their move was delayed by a couple of weeks due to renovations, but the pair are now firmly ensconced in their new Windsor abode, and likely, preparing to welcome their baby.

We can’t wait to see the new royal arrival!
