With their young children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle currently call Montecito home, and their expansive estate functions as a summer vacation home.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s estate has a number of amazing features that make it resemble a hotel or vacation village, and it will be a complete haven for them to spend a quiet, idyllic summer together there.
If the large family pool outside with its row of sun loungers doesn’t scream vacation park, we don’t know what will!
The property’s remaining outdoor area, which covers an incredible 7.38 acres and has a wide range of plants and animals, is also a major highlight. Its spotless flower beds and adorable vegetable patch were glimpsed in their Netflix documentary.
The Duchess has previously admitted they were instantly smitten with the property. “We did everything we could to get this house,” Meghan said to The Cut. “Because you enter and leave… Joy. then let out a breath. also peace. It’s therapeutic. You sense freedom. They were also won over by two trees that were present. Meghan said, “Those two palm trees were one of the first things my husband saw when we walked around the house. “Did you notice how they’re joined at the bottom? ‘My love, it’s us,’ he says. And now Archie always says, “Hi Momma,” when he passes by us. Hello, Papa.
Undoubtedly, the large playpark in the garden keeps the kids busy. The grand home has two slides, a climbing frame, a tightrope, a helter-skelter, and two different types of climbing walls, according to photos taken from previous listings.
In case the US sun gets too intense outside, the family also has a movie theater room and a games room inside.
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 to stay during the summer. especially Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother, who lives two hours away in Los Angeles.
How Prince Harry and Meghan Markle afford their £11 million home?
With regard to how the couple acquired the mansion, Harry mentioned it in his book Spare, writing: “So we pulled together a down-payment, took out a mortgage, and in July 2020 we moved in.”
However, there was a chance that the royals might not have purchased this dream home because they nearly skipped the opportunity to see it.
We didn’t have jobs, so we just weren’t going to come and see this house, Meghan said in a statement to The Cut. It couldn’t be done. I remember doing window shopping when I was younger and thinking, “I don’t want to go and look at all the things I can’t afford.” That makes me feel bad.
