The freestanding bath takes 120 man hours to be hand beaten out and depending on the model that they selected could cost up to £5,000 the Daily Mail reports.

It is also thought that Meghan and Harry may have chosen Bert & May, another supplier to Soho House, for their reclaimed Spanish tiles.

Fabulous Digital has contacted the Palace for a comment.

It comes after it was revealed that a total of £2.4 million of tax payers money had been spent refurbishing the Sussex’s Windsor home.

Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, moved into their new home in April, a month before baby Archie Harrison was born.

When the Sun last year revealed their planned relocation, officials tried to downplay the cost, saying it would be closer to £1.5million.

But accounts revealed the refurbishment of the property near Windsor Castle cost £2.4million  in the financial year to April alone.

Any work carried out since then has not been included, and the exterior has yet to be repainted — so the true cost is expected to be closer to £3million.

The books revealed major work was undertaken to turn five properties back to a single home.

A luxury kitchen was installed, while an existing studio with a bedroom was renovated, and fireplaces, floors and staircases replaced.

Meghan chose eco-friendly, toxin-free and vegan paint for the redecoration, which was reportedly overseen by designer Vicky Charles.

She was responsible for the interiors of Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire, a hotel and members’ club popular with celebs.

However, it was revealed today that the couple’s new carpet was “ruined by muddy dogs” just days after it was fitted.

In other royal news, a royalist claims that Harry and Meghan have “shot themselves in the foot” with their Frogmore refurbishment.

And we exclusively revealed that Meghan and Archie won’t be joining Harry on the second leg of the royal tour because the plane it “too small.”
