Prince Harry got $60 pedicure at 5-star spa with Meghan Markle before giving speech barefoot at Google Camp
The five-star spa facility at Coworth Park in Ascot uses trusted therapists, who are often sent to the Royal couple's Frogmore Cottage home for ‘in-house’ treatments
Prince Harry reportedly prepared for his barefoot climate change speech at the Google Camp in Sicily last week by treating himself and wife Meghan to £50 ($60) pedicures at a five-star hotel.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be regulars at a posh $600-a-night hotel at Coworth Park in Ascot, which offers massages and other spa treatments.
The five-star spa facility uses trusted therapists, who are often sent to the Royal couple's Frogmore Cottage home for “in-house” treatments.
According to the Sun, Prince Harry prepared for his barefoot speech on environment and humanitarianism by getting his toes done at the facility.
"Harry and Meghan like regular treatments at Coworth and visited recently for pedicures and massages," a royal source told the outlet.
"Meghan likes to have the same therapists and a new one has to be supervised by someone she has already approved before they're allowed to treat her on their own. Harry likes getting his feet done and also has massages due to his polo injuries."
While the pedicure starts at £50 ($60), a deluxe massage can cost up to £140 ($170) for 80 minutes. Both the duke and the duchess reportedly enjoy the pampering treatments while their son, Archie takes a nap under a babysitter.
They are said to use a secluded cottage in the grounds — the same one where Harry stayed the night before his wedding.
However, Princess Diana and Prince Charles' younger son did not always enjoy such luxurious skin treatments.
One of his friends in the army, who served with him in Afghanistan, told the British newspaper: "Pedicures and massages? He’s changed! Harry used to be a proper bloke — dodgy dress sense, liked a drink and didn’t care how he looked. In his Army days, he would have laughed if someone had offered him a pedicure. Now he’s pontificating about saving the world and doesn’t smoke or drink.”
Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan’s spokeswoman said of the Coworth trips: “We don’t comment on personal schedules."
