For the past few months, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had chosen Tyler Perry's luxurious 12-bedroom, eight-bathroom Beverly Hills mansion worth USD 18 million as their quarantine home base along with baby Archie. However, as per a report by Page Six, Harry and Meghan have secretly bought a private family home in Santa Barbara, California and are quietly living there since early July. A spokesperson for the couple confirmed to Page Six, "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into their family home in July of this year. They have settled into the quiet privacy of their community since their arrival and hope that this will be respected for their neighbours, as well as for them as a family."

Their family home, in the upscale California community, has been the "chosen" place to put down permanent roots and bring up Archie with the most normal life possible, especially after leaving the Royal Family. Moreover, this is Harry and Markle's first home which either of them has ever owned. The six weeks since the trio moved into their home has been a very special time for them as a couple and as a family due to having "complete privacy," which they didn't have in Los Angeles.

"Harry and Meghan never intended to make Los Angeles their home. It was a good place for them to be upon their arrival in the US to be close to Meghan’s mom [who lives in LA]," the source added to Page Six.

While the extravagant price for their family home (Santa Barbara is one of the wealthiest communities in the US with homes on sale for more than USD 100 million!) has not been unveiled due to security concerns, Harry and Meghan have thought about the decision carefully with adequate research. For the couple, its the place where they plan to be happy, make good friends and bring up Archie while giving their toddler a chance to play with other children his age.

The source further stated that Harry prefers homes which are more "intimate" with "character". Other Santa Barbara residents include Harry and Meghan's good friends Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres.

If they don't want to do the job, as a royal. Then, they should lose the Sussexs title as well. Get jobs, become working Americans, not still using the titles for cash.

They both claim to want privacy, then release the personal details of her miscarriage and other aspects of their lives. She does seem to crave publicity but in her own time! Control...for sure.
