They bought their first home together in Santa Barbara County, California over the summer, a spokesperson for the couple confirmed to Insider’s Mikhaila Frail.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into their family home in July this year,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “They have settled into the quiet privacy of their community since arriving and hope this will be respected for their neighbors, as well as for them as a family. ”
Meghan and Harry previously lived in Tyler Perry’s 8-bedroom, 12-bathroom mansion in Beverly Hills. Santa Barbara, a 90-minute drive northwest of Los Angeles, is one of the wealthiest communities in which to live, attracting the rich and famous from California and the country.
But despite its richness, the community is much more down to earth and less flashy than LA. It also offers more privacy.
Here’s what it feels like to live there, and why the wealthy couple may have chosen it as their new base in the United States.
