The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been enjoying a six-week break from royal duties since late November, and most recently, they’ve been in Canada, on Vancouver Island, where Duchess Meghan lived while filming Suits. For the past two weeks, the Sussexes have reportedly been staying in a lavish mansion on the west coast of Canada, and it’s where they rang in the new year.

According to the Mirror, the $13.26 million waterfront home spans over 10,000 square feet, and includes a surplus of bedrooms and bathrooms and a kitchen with a pizza oven. There’s a formal dining room, two-story living room, game room with a wet bar, media room and wine-tasting room, with luxe details like a 17th century imported French fireplace.

The several acres of grounds also includes a guest cottage, as well as some very Insta-worthy scenery, at least if the Sussexes’ latest upload of baby Archie and Prince Harry is any indication.

The Sussexes have ventured out to explore the area, and on Christmas Day, headed to a nearby resort, where they had a catered lunch in a private suite.

While Prince Harry and Meghan did miss out on Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s Sandringham walk debut, as Prince William and Kate Middleton brought their two oldest children along to church on December 25, the Sussexes will be back in the United Kingdom soon enough—they’re expected to return to royal duties early this month.
