Recently Meghan and Harry moved into a new £11.2m home in Santa Barbara, California. The property, situated in the Montecito unincorporated community, is situated to the north of Los Angeles.
Meghan and Harry initially lived in a Beverly Hills mansion, borrowed from a friend, before making their latest move.
Their new luxury home has nine bedrooms and no less than 16 bathrooms.
It also comes complete with a tennis court, rose garden and children’s cottage.
However, it appears the couple’s arrival is having a huge impact on their new neighbours.
