Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are peacefully living in their new mansion in Montecito, but their neighbors don’t feel the same peace after their arrival.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry want to live a quiet life, so they left Los Angeles and purchased a home in Montecito, Santa Barbara. However, the high-profile couple is making unnecessary noise in their new place. And their prominent neighbors do not love it.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s neighbors allegedly ‘super annoyed’
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry chose the perfect place to raise their son, Archie. Montecito is one of the safest and most family-friendly communities. However, their neighbors seemed not to find them the perfect family next door. The couple was making too much noise after moving in the place.
Since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to Montecito, there was an influx of paparazzi. The affluent area that used to be an enclave for celebrities who want to rest from the limelight has been visited lately by paparazzi, TMZ reported.
Paparazzi are stalking the royal couple outside their home and in a nearby shopping center. Also, more tourists are showing up in the town. Most of them asked the local shop owners if they have seen Prince Harry and Markle.
Montecito is popular for being paparazzi-free. That’s the reason celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah, Kim Kardashian and more love to dine there. However, Prince Harry and Markle changed the trend.
Most locals reportedly want the paparazzi to give it a rest. They felt that their privacy is already being compromised and “they’re super annoyed.”
Montecito before the Sussexes
Realtor expert Cristal Clarke approved of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to settle down in Montecito.
Aside from the perfect scene and award-winning private and public schools, it is safe. Also, the people there are used to high-profile individuals. So, the Sussexes need not bother about their popularity.
“Montecito residents are accustomed to having high-profile neighbors and visitors, and many of those residents can relate first-hand to overzealous attention,” Clarke told Us Weekly.
“In other words, you might say the new neighbors will be welcomed warmly, yet with ‘respectful congeniality.'”
That’s why Prince Harry and Markle’s neighbors are annoyed. They are not pissed at the couple but at the visitors and paparazzi who are flocking their place.
Meghan was broke years before Prince Harry
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle was so broke before she met Prince Harry. She agreed to do Deal or No Deal because finding jobs was not easy for the duchess at the time.
However, she raised to stardom when she scored a role at USA Network’s legal drama Suits. She became even more popular when she married Prince Harry and became a royal.
