In a recent Zoom call to celebrate the first anniversary of her Smart Works patronage in the UK, Meghan sat in front of a framed black-and-white print which many viewers took as a sign of her love for her home state. The picture, which could be seen resting on a stone mantle, is the sheet music cover for California’s official state anthem, “I Love You, California”.
A California grizzly bear could be seen clutching the state of California – where Meghan was born and raised.
The song’s lyrics focus on a deep love for the coastal state.
The song begins: “I love you, California, you're the greatest state of all/I love you in the winter, summer, spring and in the fall/I love your fertile valleys; your dear mountains I adore/I love your grand old ocean and I love her rugged shore.”
The Duchess of Sussex beamed at the camera as she sat in the comfort of her new mansion in the sunny state.

A house plant could be seen in the bright room which looked out onto a garden.
Meghan and Harry moved to Santa Barbara earlier in the summer with their one-year-old son Archie.
They had been staying in the LA area since mid-March.
The couple’s new home in Montecito is estimated to have cost a staggering £11million.
