Prince Edward and his wife Sophie Wessex have given fans a sneak peek into their Surrey home after they gave The Telegraph exclusive access to their Grade II listed mansion.

The publication released previously unseen shots of the royal household complete with 120 rooms which Prince Edward, 57, and his wife Sophie, 56, share with their two children Lady Louise, 17, and James Viscount Severn, 13.

Fans have been able to grasp a better insight into the properties that house the royal families since the global coronavirus pandemic took full effect last March, and forced people to communicate virtually.

In the jaw-dropping royal mansion in Bagshot Park, Surrey, the royal couple allowed photographers into their family abode for the first time to take a deeper look at their sprawling mansion like never before.

In one shot, the couple took a beautiful portrait together with their perfect pooches in one of their many entertaining rooms, as they stood by the window which overlooked their well-manicured gardens.

The royal pair kept the home in keeping with the traditional royal style, which showed off their floral curtains paired with a rich aubergine rug and styled with a light pink armchair and antique side table.

It appears the dogs are treated like royalty just as much as their owners as Prince Edward fondly held his furry friend next to his beloved wife Sophie, who recently detailed "lengthy chat" with Prince Harry after Prince Philip's funeral, while their black Labrador perched on top of the baby pink armchair to share a quick kiss with his best pal.

The couple showcased their luxurious conservatory which gave a glimpse into their 51 acres of land outside that they styled in the open morning room with several exotic plants spread around the large family table.

During the interview, Edward and his wife Sophie, who had to go into self-isolation last year after she came into contact with someone with Covid-19, made the most of the lovely English weather and took their dogs out for a troll amongst their enormous acreage which gave fans an inkling into their wonderful royal gardens behind closed gates.

The sprawling home was gifted to the royal couple by the Queen herself as a generous wedding gift after the couple made things official in 1999, where the family have resided ever since.

This comes after Prince Edward and his wife stepped into a more prominent role within the royal family las year after the departure of Duke and Duchess of Sussex in February 2020.

The couple told The Telegraph they were “flattered” by to be part of the “slimmed down monarchy” after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set down roots with their two children in California.

Sophie Wessex told the publication: “We’ve plodded along doing what we’re doing, hopefully doing it well. And then all of a sudden there’s a bit of a hiatus and things have changed a bit.

“Naturally, the media are looking for people to fill the so-called void. But you know, we have been doing this for what feels like a pretty long time!

“If people want to pay more attention to what we’re doing then great, because actually, that’s got to be good for our organisations and the work that we are trying to carry out.”
