‘Oh dahling’! Duchess of Sussex uses Britishisms after spending two years in the UK, it is claimed

  • Duchess of Sussex has picked up a number of Britishisms from living in the UK 
  • Sources working in Meghan and Harry’s new mansion claimed she says ‘dahling’
  • One source said staff members regularly did impressions of the duchess’ accent 

The Duchess of Sussex regularly says ‘oh dahling’ after picking up a number of British phrases during her two years in the UK, it has been claimed.

Sources working in the Duke and Duchess’s £11million mansion in Santa Barbara, California, said Meghan regularly uses certain very British words.

One told The Sun: ‘She has adopted certain phrases. She’s often heard saying “oh dahling”.’ 

The mansion’s staff members mimic Meghan’s new turns of phrase, but in a friendly way, it was claimed.

‘They do have a giggle about it and sometimes they do impressions of her but only in a light-hearted way,’ they added.

Meghan, 39, Harry, 35, and their 15-month-old son Archie moved into the mansion in Montecito six weeks ago.  

It has nine bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a swimming pool and children’s play-ground.  

Meghan and Harry’s home sits on 5.4 acres of land and immaculately clipped hedges border the estate’s stone-pillared entry gates. 

Property listings say the home took nearly five years to build and includes a library, office, spa with a separate dry and wet sauna, a gym with a stripper pole, game room, arcade, theater, wine cellar and five-car garage. 

The entrance to the property opens onto a wide lane paved with hand-cut Santa Barbara Stone that leads through a grand archway of trees to the main residence, according to Zillow. 

The estate has sweeping lawns, tiered rose gardens, tall Italian cypress trees, blooming lavender, century old olive trees, a tennis court, tea house, children’s cottage and a pool.

It also boasts a two-bedroom, two-bath guest house, perfect for Meghan’s mother Doria, who is acting as one-year-old Archie’s nanny. Doria has already been to the house, TMZ reports.

The home’s seller is thought to be Russian tycoon Sergey Grishin who bought the ‘palatial’ mansion for more than $25million in 2009 and had tried to sell the home for up to $34million before eventually accepting a loss.

Grishin is also the former owner of a different California estate – known as the Scarface mansion because it appeared in the 1983 Al Pacino movie – which sold for a similarly cut-price $12million in 2015. 

Their new home was built in 2003. The estate has sweeping lawns, tiered rose gardens, tall Italian cypress trees, blooming lavender, century old olive trees, a tennis court, tea house, children’s cottage and a pool

Surrounded by lush green gardens and overlooking the sea, the home has been described as a ‘hidden paradise’.

One estate agent who spent an hour inside said it was ‘designed for someone who never wants to leave home’.

Brett Buschbom said: ‘I went through this house and an hour later I’m coming out like “wow”, the whole bottom floor felt like a resort with steam room, massage room, sauna, Jacuzzi, full bar, arcade and one of the most amazing wine cellars and that was just the basement.’

The Sussexes are said to have been living in the house for the last six weeks, after moving 90 miles along the coast from a mansion in Los Angeles where they were house guests.
