Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's New House in Santa Barbara is So Stunning

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry bought a stunning $14,650,000 house in Santa Barbara, California, and moved into their new home in July.


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently moved into a house in Santa Barbara (opens in new tab), California, and their new family home is absolutely stunning. According (opens in new tab) to Page Six, the property cost Meghan and Harry $14,650,000, and stretches over 18,000 square feet. It's got nine bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a pool, a tennis court, a tea house, a children's cottage (cute!), rose gardens, and a few hundred-year-old olive trees to seal the deal. Plus, there's a whole two-bedroom guest house on the property, ideal for friends and family staying with the Sussexes.

The new home is reportedly extra secure against intrusive paparazzi—crucial for Meghan and Harry, who've been hounded by photographers since moving to the U.S. Last month, the royals were forced to take legal action, after drones were used to take photos of baby Archie (opens in new tab).

An anonymous source told Page Six that moving into their own home in Santa Barbara, after spending time in one of Tyler Perry's properties in Beverly Hills, is beyond exciting for the Sussexes. "Meghan and Harry finally feel like they are on their own, and it feels great," the source said. "They bought this house without help from his family, they aren’t using it on loan from a friend as they had before. It’s truly theirs and they can’t wait to make it a home."
