Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been giving fans glimpses inside their gorgeous new home in Santa Barbara with son Archie. The Duke of Sussex and the former Suits actress showed off a few rooms in their new $14.7 million property in California’s prestigious Montecito neighborhood.
The royal couple have offered sneak peeks while participating in video calls from the comfort of their home. Fans first got a look inside when Meghan joined The 19th Represents 2020 Virtual Summit on August 14. The Hollywood alum was all smiles as she sat in a room with white walls, massive windows and dark wood panels.
Harry also gave a glance at what appeared to be an office space when he video chatted with Team Invictus following the completion of their At Home Superhero Tri on August 18. The royal hunk sat at a desk in a dark grey button-up with white walls in the background.
While the royal lovebirds are still getting situated in their new digs, it seems they couldn’t be happier about living in Santa Barbara. The pair, who were previously renting actor Tyler Perry‘s Los Angeles property since March, purchased the new gated home so they could have more privacy for their family.
“The house has a Mediterranean vibe to it — French doors and archways and a pool,” an insider exclusively shared with Closer Weekly earlier in August. “It’s much more private than Tyler’s house, which has enabled them to cut back on security costs.”
Aside from feeling more at ease in central California opposed to life in Los Angeles, the source said the property is most ideal for Archie, who was born in May 2019. “It’s beautiful and spacious, but not too over-the-top,” the insider explained. “It’s the perfect place for Archie to grow up.”
The doting mom and dad first made their move to North America in mid-January. After announcing their plans to step back from their roles as senior members of Queen Elizabeth‘s royal family, Meghan and Harry relocated to Canada with Archie. Following a short time in Canada, the two moved their family to L.A. in March.
The royal hunk was “extremely unhappy” in L.A., so the move to Santa Barbara comes at a good time. “Harry doesn’t know the area well at all, but so far so good,” an insider told In Touch Weekly. “Santa Barbara is more his scene than L.A. It’s peaceful and chill. He has the freedom and space he needs.”
By the look of Harry’s smile during his video call, it seems he’s enjoying it already!
