Meghan Markle has left fans disappointed with the filming location for her new cookery show.

Sussex fans were hoping to catch a glimpse of the duchess's glamorous Montecito home in the new Netflix series.

But according to reports in The Daily Mail, the show will not be filmed at Meghan and Prince Harry's mansion.

The show will instead be filmed at another location in their affluent California neighbourhood.

The series, according to Netflix, will "celebrate the joys of cooking and gardening, entertaining and friendship".

A source told the publication: "Netflix has rented a house in Montecito for filming."

Fans of the couple were surprised by the announcement because Meghan and Harry have filmed inside their Montecito home many times.

Their 2022 Netflix docuseries, titled Harry & Meghan, showed the couple at home after stepping down as working royals.

Meghan's representative declined to explain her decision to film her new series in a different home.

One disappointed fan wrote on X: "Really? They have to rent another house in Montecito?"

Another said: "Isn’t this one of the things that makes cooking shows interesting?

"That it looks like they’re in their own homes?"

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's £11million "Spanish Revival-style" property has nine bedrooms and bathrooms.

In addition, it features a five-car garage, a bar, and other amenities.

The show is one of two new projects Meghan and Harry are producing for Netflix, and it will link with the duchess's new lifestyle company, American Riviera Orchard.

Next year, their multimillion-dollar contract with the streaming platform is up for renewal.

Netflix said it will "provide viewers [with] unprecedented access to the world of professional polo".

Harry and Meghan will both be involved as executive producers.
