Meghan and Harry are not looking to move to a different neighbourhood in Montecito, according to the Santa Barbara village’s paper. A section of the local newspaper Montecito Journal titled “Rumours and Actual News” claimed the speculation over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s next property move was fictitious and had been started by one “hopeful realtor” (estate agent).
The paper read: “Apparently, this one was started by a hopeful realtor listing a property in Birnam, who wanted to gin up interest in it, but had no idea that worldwide press would jump on anything that mentions these two.”
The article went on to stress the welcoming and private nature of the Montecito village.
It read: “You know, the point of them moving here was to have a nice community to fit in, enjoy, and be part of.
“We’re pretty good around here at respecting people’s privacy.
“Realtors who want to overhype a listing – be warned.”
Reports claiming the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not entirely thrilled of their mansion and may desire to relocate somewhere else in Montecito first emerged in early January.
A source told the Mirror: “They are thinking of selling their house there.
“However, it won’t be on the market because of who they are.
“It’s only being shown to people who are confirmed with funds and are serious buyers.”
Another source claimed the Sussexes were not “over the moon about the house and the location”.
Harry and Meghan moved into their Montecito residence in the summer of 2020.
The home reportedly counts nine bedrooms and 16 bathrooms, a tea house and a spa.
Over the past months, the couple has allowed the public to catch a glimpse into their home on a few different occasions.
As part of their interview with Oprah Winfrey in early 2021, Harry and Meghan were filmed chatting with the journalist inside a chicken coop in their garden.
The coop is home to rescued chickens and was given the adorable name “Archie’s Chick Inn” after the couple’s firstborn Archie Harrison.
The Sussexes have shown other parts of their garden on different occasions – most notably in the Christmas card they shared in 2020.
The card was an artistic rendering of a picture taken by Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland and it showed Meghan, Archie and Harry sitting on the premises of the baby’s playhouse.
Meghan and Harry also showed part of their living room during various video calls with organisations they support or interviews.
Finally, the Sussexes’ fans could catch a glimpse of another room in the Montecito mansion, believed to be the couple’s studio, in a video filmed to mark Meghan’s 40th birthday.
The Duchess filmed a skit with actor and friend Melissa McCarthy to launch the mentorship initiative 40×40.
This project saw Meghan inviting 40 of her friends to donate 40 minutes of their time to mentor a woman who lost her job during the pandemic but is now seeking to re-enter the market.
This home is the only place the Sussexes’ daughter Lilibet Diana has so far ever lived.
Archie, on the other hand, spent the first few months of his life at Frogmore Cottage, a residence near Windsor Castle in which the Duke and Duchess had moved in the spring of 2019.
