  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly have fewer "financial resources" than Prince William and Kate Middleton.

  • Meghan and Harry have a laid back lifestyle with a shockingly small number of staff members, given they're royals.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have settled right TF into their cozy lives in the hilariously-named Frogmore Cottage, and the time has come for an update. Vanity Fair's royal reporter Katie Nicholl just dished an entire bucket of tea, and she had some interesting things to say about the couple's life at home with this cutie:

First of all, Meghan has worked through her royal growing pains, and has even adopted some Britishisms like "bits and bobs," lol. "The papers like to use the word difficult. I’d say ‘'different,'" a source who works with the Duchess tells Nicholl. “It was hard for her. She didn’t have a support structure in place and she was getting used to living in a new country and being part of a very unique institution."

Meghan and Harry's home at Frogmore is like a "private oasis and sanctuary," with very few staff members due to the couple's financial restrictions. A source tells Nicholl they "won’t be hiring anything like what the Cambridges have," and that "the Sussexes don’t have the same financial resources as the Cambridges, for starters."

Aside from a nanny and security, Meghan and Harry employ a housekeeper and two assistants, and they share two palace orderlies. They don't have a chef, the Duchess doesn't have a stylist ("she does most of it herself"), and she does all her grocery shopping herself online from Ocado-England's version of Fresh Direct.

In other words, they're completely chill. Minus the occasional tiara and carriage ride.
