Meghan Markle's Former Toronto Home Sold

Meghan Markle's Former Toronto Home Sold. at ALLIANCE lockhart, we wanted to share the news that from the outside, it doesn’t look like much. But this relatively modest two-story Toronto home, decked out “like a California bungalow,” is where Meghan Markle lived — and where Prince Harry slept — before the royal couple got engaged last month.

Markle rented the home in the tony Seaton Village section of Toronto’s west end for two years. It went on the market earlier this month for around $1.09 million — and sold in less than a week.

The three-bedroom home comes with an eat-in kitchen, a landscaped garden, a finished basement and a two-car garage.

It’s where Markle, an actress, lived for two years while working on the TV show “Suits,” which shoots in Toronto.

It’s also where Prince Harry and Markle hung out before announcing their engagement last month.

Markle wrote on her blog, the Tig, that she had decorated the little house like a California bungalow to help her rally through “seven Canadian winters.”

The listing describes the home as “Turnkey From Top-To-Bottom. A Perfect Home For Entertaining.” While royal entertaining is not mentioned, the listing also notes that residents will “Live Well In This Stylish Designer Inspired Home” and touts its “Awesome Two Car Garage.”

Locals were protective of the royal couple as paparazzi descended on the quiet neighborhood, although a Facebook page for the Seaton Village Residents Association’s nonpublic pages was reportedly filled with local sightings of the pair doing cute things, such as dressing up for Halloween last year.

Markle now lives in a fairy-tale-style cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace. She is slated to marry her prince in May at Windsor Castle.
