Exciting news for Duke and Duchess of Sussex! The couple have bought their very first home together. Their chosen property is located in Santa Barbara, a picturesque seaside town located about 100 miles from Los Angeles. A representative for Harry and Meghan has confirmed to Hello Magazine that they moved into their family home with son Archie in July, adding: ‘They have settled into the quiet privacy of their community since their arrival and hope that this will be respected for their neighbours, as well as for them as a family’.
Harry and Meghan now seem ready to put down permanent roots, not least the sake of their one-year-old son, who they hope to give as normal an upbringing as possible. And they are certainly in good company in Santa Barbara, one of the wealthiest communities in the U.S., which is also home to the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise and Ellen DeGeneres.
The Sussex family made headlines when they relocated to LA earlier this year. During that time, they lived in Tyler Perry’s $18 million Beverly Hills mansion, which boasted 12 bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Prior to that, the couple spent some time in Vancouver, Canada, following their decision to step back as senior members of the royal family at the start of the year.
