Reports have stated that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have bought a home in Santa Babara, a hotspot for celebrities that live there, that has supposedly cost them £11 million.
It was known that the couple had been house hunting in the US before the coronavirus lockdown after moving there from Canada. Santa Barbara lays on the coast of California and among stars that reside there are Oprah Winfrey and Ariana Grande.
Past residents include such names as actors Rob Lowe and Jeff Bridges and famous chat show host Ellen DeGeneres. Harry and Meghan’s new home, which reportedly cost $14.65 million (£11.1 million) has nine bedrooms, a lift, gym, home theatre, swimming pool and games room.
Apart from the main house, which is an impressive 14,500 sq.ft., there is also a 2 bedroom guest cottage and tennis court in the grounds. A spokesman for the couple said that they had moved into their new property in July and, since their arrival, have settled into a quiet and private life which they hope will be respected for their neighbours as well as themselves.
It is also understood that Harry’s father, the Prince of Wales, did not have a helping hand in the purchase of property. It is the latest in a long line of moves that sees them moving further away from Royal life after they stated earlier this year that their wish was to be financially independent.
