The family home of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in Montecito, California, has experienced two intrusion scares in the past 12 days.
The police were called to the home twice, according to the Sun, where the couple lives with their two young children, Archie, age three, and Lilibet, age one.
According to Santa Barbara Police records, officers paid the house a visit on May 19 at 5:44 p.m. Notably, that day marked the couple’s fourth wedding anniversary.
When the family left California for the UK to attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, they were responding to a second intruder report on May 31 at 3:21 p.m.
Police classified both intrusions as trespassing, property crimes, and “suspicious circumstances.”
Six security calls to Harry and Meghan’s home were reportedly made to Santa Barbara police in the previous 14 months.
In June 2020, the Sussex family moved into the Montecito mansion, formally known as Chateau of River Rock. For their kids’ enjoyment, the property has a spa, tennis court, and a segregated playground.
Numerous celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise, and Ellen DeGeneres, who own homes there, have been drawn to the area because of its secluded hillside estates that promise the utmost privacy. The home of Harry and Meghan is on a private road and has a long driveway as well as big security gates.
There are nine bedrooms and 16 bathrooms overall in the home. Additionally, according to reports, there is a separate guest house with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, which Harry and Meghan will undoubtedly use for other family members, particularly Doria, Meghan’s mother, who lives nearby in Los Angeles and will probably visit.
The main house has a gym, a games room, an arcade, a movie theater, a wine cellar, a library, an office, a spa with separate dry and wet saunas, a gym, a games room, and a garage with room for five cars.
There is a sizable outdoor pool, a tennis court, tiered rose gardens, a tea house, and even a children’s cottage for Archie and Lilibet.
