The property in Seaton Village, a leafy neighbourhood on the west side of the city, was snapped up for $1.6 million (£953,289) after being put on the market last December. The Duchess, whose first child is due next spring, was known to give her Instagram fans a glimpse into her life by regularly posting selfies of herself relaxing at home and her pets lounging on the furniture.

Meghan went for a minimalist style with a girly touch when decorating the pad and used statement pieces adorning the walls and vases of fresh flowers, particularly roses and peonies, on side tables to inject some colour into her home.
She favoured large mirrors, animal skin rugs, houseplants, fluffy throws and indicated she is a fan of the antique look.
A large walk-in closet included an entire wall displaying Meghan’s vast collection of high heels and shelves packed with books showed she is a keen reader.
Meghan opted for crisp white linen in bedrooms, white walls and lots of bright lights at the three-bedroom two-bathroom home.
Frogmore Cottage, a Grade II listed house in estate named after the high number of frogs which reside at the low-lying marshy area.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge held their wedding reception at Frogmore House, which was built between 1680 and 1684.
The estate includes the Mausoleum of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and the Royal Burial Ground where Harry’s great great uncle, the abdicated King Edward VIII, is buried with his wife Wallis Simpson – later Duchess of Windsor.
The move of more than 20 miles has sparked rumours of a rift between Meghan and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton, who lives at Kensington Palace.
