The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly spent £5,000 on a copper bath tub for their home.

According to reports, the couple bought the luxury tub from Soho House supplier, William Holland.

The Daily Mail claimed the bath takes 120 man hours to be hand beaten out and they can cost up to £5,000 depending on the model.

The couple are also thought to have selected a string of items of furniture directly from the Soho Home range.

Ent Daily has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.

Earlier this month, the Sussexes came under fire after it was revealed that £2.4 million of public money was spent on renovations for their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor.

The royal couple - who have seven-week-old son Archie together - have paid for upgraded fixtures and fittings at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, but the Sovereign Grant has covered the cost of replacing heating, electric, gas and water main systems, as well as replacing ceiling beams and floor joists at the property, which has been remodelled from five separate living quarters into one residence.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan were also permitted to use the grant to install a "certain standard" of kitchen, bathroom, flooring and fitted furniture from the grant, but anything considered a "higher spec" than that approved by the palace must be met by the couple themselves.

Sir Michael Stevens, Keeper of the Privy Purse, who is responsible for monarchy's accounts, said of Frogmore Cottage: "The property had not been the subject of work for some years and had already been earmarked for renovation in line with our responsibility to maintain the condition of the occupied royal palaces estate.

Substantially all fixtures and fittings were paid for by Their Royal Highnesses.

"The Sovereign Grant covered the work undertaken to turn the building into the official residence and home of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their new family.
