In recent months, the neighbors of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry seem to decide to desert their neighborhood. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex settled in Montecito, the millionaire enclave located in California since July 2020. They bought a property of more than 1300m² there for 14.65 million dollars.
On Friday, October 19, the Daily Mail announced the departure of one of the couple’s billionaire neighbors, Peter Sperling. According to the newspaper “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s billionaire neighbor has sold his $ 19 million mansion, making him the last of the rich and famous residents of Montecito, California to leave since the ex-royals arrived “.

Also according to the Daily Mail, the son of the founder of the University of Phoenix seemed so eager to sell his property that he would not have hesitated to sell off its price. Estimated at the beginning at 26.75 million dollars, Peter Sperling would have finally accepted an offer to 19 million dollars. The newspaper said: “Sperling was so keen to sell his Garden Lane house a few doors down from Harry and Meghan that he slashed the price by a total of $ 7.65 million.”
Last February, Peter Sperling had already sold another mansion for $ 16.3 million. It was also located in the affluent district of California. For his part, actor Rob Lowe also sold his residence last September. It was in the same neighborhood as the Sussexes. At this rate, Archie and Lilibeth’s parents could soon find themselves without any neighbors.
