Princess Beatrice ‘gave Harry and Meghan nod’ to film at Queen’s cottage for Netflix show

Princess Beatrice is one of the only members of the Royal Family that is still in communication with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

It was intended as a symbol of the love of the Welsh people for the little Princess who, at that stage, never expected to become Queen and was designed by architect Edmund Willmott.

In 2010, the late Queen gifted the cottage to Beatrice and the custodianship of the gift fell to Prince Andrew’s eldest daughter.

The 34-year-old, who is now mother to one-year-old daughter Sienna, oversaw a year-long renovation of the cottage.

Meghan Markle’s biographer hits out at Kate ‘fashion swipe’

Earlier this month, the royals all joined together at Westminster Abbey for the Princess of Wales’ Together at Christmas carol concert.

The event coincided with the release of the second section of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Netflix documentary.

The Daily Mail has received criticism for its latest article on the event in which one of its writers expressed her belief that the royals wore burgundy in a swipe at the Sussexes.

Following the completion, Beatrice invited Andrew Marr inside for the BBC’s The Diamond Queen in 2012.

This was first time cameras had been allowed access.

Since it was first gifted to the late monarch in 1932, the cottage has served as the official royal playhouse for generations since.

The cottage, which is also known as ‘The Little Cottage’, came complete with electric lighting and running water.

It also boasts cutlery, utensils, and furniture.

It measures at 22 feet wide and 15 feet high and has contains a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom.

During their childhood years, the then-Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret claimed the cottage as their favourite pastime and looked after it themselves.

Beatrice has described the cottage as “the most glamorous Wendy house ever”.

The couple signed a multi-million dollar deal with the streaming service in 2020, shortly after their royal exit.

The series, which was released over two separate dates, is the first major project to be released as part of the lucrative deal.
