In 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left Frogmore Cottage, their home in the United Kingdom, and moved to Montecito.
The Duchess is speaking out about how her life has altered since the couple paid AU$21 mιllιon for a 16-bedroom mansion in the affluent California suburb two years ago.
In a recent cover story with The Cut, Meghan was candid about how the big house is “calm and healing” and finally “makes her feel free.”
Meghan and Prince Harry admitted that because they had recently left the Royal Family and were out of work, they had only toured the exterior of the property rather than peering inside because they didn’t think they could afford it.
A huge pool, a tennis court, a chicken coop, rose gardens, a roomy patio with a wood-fired stove, and a barbeque are among the property’s outside amenities.
In the end, the couple fell in love with the house and quickly bought it. Since then, they have turned it into their home by relocating there with their two kids, Archie and Lilibet.
With a library, office that Meghan and her husband share, a sauna, gym, games room, arcade, wine cellar, and five-car garage, the estate offers plenty of area for the kids to develop.
When the couple first purchased the home, the main living space and bedrooms both featured typical wooden beams and large windows that let the California sun flow through.
Despite Meghan informed the publication that she and Harry had refurbished the house, it is unknown how much of its original characteristics have been kept.
There is a main structure, a tea house, and a guest house with two bedrooms on the property.
