Why are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry receiving hate from their new neighbours? Let’s find out the real truth behind the tag ‘Neighbours from hell’.
At the beginning of 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to take a step back from their British royal duties and move to North America. After living in Canada for a couple of weeks, they decided to move to Meghan’s hometown, Los Angeles. Following a brawl with the paparazzi, they again decided to shift to a house they bought themselves. This time it was their new home in Montecito, Santa Barbara. The beach town is also home to celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey, Rob Lowe, and Ariana Grande. Montecito’s mountains, ocean and vineyards seemed like the perfect space for their son Archie to grow. Prince Harry also hated living in Los Angeles as it was tough to escape the fans and the paparazzi. The royal couple were really happy to be part of the community and enjoy some private time together as a family.
