Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are in the headlines this time for their Montecito home. After parting ways with the royal family in January 2020, the Sussexes bought a swanky and luxurious cottage in Montecito. Their house in a star-studded neighborhood is nothing less than a dream mansion as it comes with various private amenities. The $14 million sprawling property is equipped with a whopping nine bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, private rose gardens, a swimming pool, tennis court, gym, and cinema.
However, Harry and Meghan have now decided to shift places. The couple is on the verge of confirming a private estate in Hope Ranch. The coastal suburb of Santa Barbara is even more lavish and royal. As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided to relocate with their children Archie and Lilibet, the people of the beachfront town revealed how it is to have royals as their neighbours.
Montecito neighbours are divided over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
The people living in Montecito have mixed reviews of Harry and Meghan. While some are unbothered by the presence of British royalty in their neighborhood, few people found the couple arrogant. A retired lecturer, Katie revealed that the Sussexes have a little attitude problem.
“A lot of people think, ‘yeah fun’, but a lot of people think they have got a bit of an attitude. I do not think they are universally revered,” Katie told Express UK. She further claimed that most of the locals are curious about knowing more about the couple.
People don’t have bad intentions towards Harry and Meghan. However, they just have curiosity about the famous royal family. The lecturer also admitted to going into the lane in which the Sussexes reside to have a look at their splendid adobe.
Meanwhile, another local Judy denied the hype surrounding the Duke and Duchess. She mentioned that the Sussexes are not famous public figures and she has no interest in knowing more about them. A sports sale representative, Dave Kanarek, shared the same viewpoint as Judy. Kanarek revealed that he has not “really heard much about Harry and Meghan”.
