Prince Harry and Meghan Markle erected screens around the mansion in the Beverly Hills area where they live, after discovering that people could see directly on the ground.
Workers were photographed in front of the $ 18 million house owned by film producer Tyler Perry on Saturday – the first day, Los Angeles County allowed the reopening of some hiking trails as authorities relaxed measures locking.
After Parks & Recreation let Californians return to popular hiking routes such as Beverly Drive – Franklin Canyon Connector Trail on Saturday, locals taking dogs for walks and exercising daily could see exactly where the couple was staying with their son Archie.
The area surrounding Beverly Ridge Estates has a steep hill that leads to the edge of the property and provides walkers with a vantage point.

But now it has become obvious that people can see it too. The screens are visible on the left. The recently opened hiking trail takes people directly to the house where they are greeted by cameras. To the right is a view obstructed by trees from the top of the hill

But since the area is elevated about 800 feet, the family can also see what’s going on in the prestigious neighborhood, with Perry’s property surrounded by security cameras.
Harry and Meghan’s positioning in the affluent neighborhood near Beverly Hills and the West Hollywood Sunset Strip also allows them to look at the multi-million dollar homes on the nearby Beverly Park estate. They include Sylvester Stallone’s property with an outdoor pool, the French-style mansion of Rod Stewart with a football field and the circular turret of Mark Wahlberg.
With the warming weather and the social distancing measures of the coronaviruses being relaxed, the trail could experience intense traffic this summer.
The family may also want to go out to enjoy the beautiful pool furnished with lounge chairs.
However, it is believed that Harry and Meghan only stay there while they are looking for a permanent place.

DailyMail.com learned that Tyler Perry’s $ 150 million jet had left its base outside Atlanta at 1:35 a.m. on Saturday March 14 to pick up Harry, Meghan and Archie, a one-year-old baby. Pictured: Perry photographed on a private plane
The couple are believed to have been linked to Tyler via Oprah Winfrey.
The Duke and Duchess are currently working on a documentary series with Oprah, while Perry has partnered with Oprah’s OWN TV channel in the past.
A source told DailyMail.com: “Meghan and Harry have been extremely careful to keep their LA base secret.
“Their team helped them choose the right place for their transition to Los Angeles.
“Beverly Ridge has its own guarded door and Tyler’s property has its own door which is guarded by their security team.
Beverly Ridge is a great place not to see. The neighbors are mostly old money and mega-rich business types rather than showing gossip.
“It goes without saying that the location is beautiful – just one of the most beautiful and sought after areas in LA.”
It is also home to socialite Alexis Carson, the widow of popular talk show host Johnny Carson.
Senior Hollywood real estate agent Rochelle Maize of Nourmand & Associates told DailyMail.com: “Beverly Ridge Estates has only 14 homes but is very prestigious and chic.
“There are not many rentals available due to the limited number of properties.
“Leases start at around $ 20,000 and can go up to $ 40,000 a month. It costs about $ 16 million to buy property there. “
The Sussexes and Perry consider Oprah to be their Hollywood mentor. Oprah is even the godchild of Perry’s son Aman, five, and has been seen at the house where Meghan and Harry are now staying for her christening party in 2015 (photo)
