After their departure from the British royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made the decision to leave for North America. With their son Archie, the two parents have already moved to a villa in Canada in January, then moved to Los Angeles in February. If the royal couple chose the City of Angels, it is not only so that their little family evolves away from prying eyes and the British press, but also to be closer to Doria Ragland, the mother of Meghan Markle.
In the greatest of secrets, at the beginning of last July, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle bought their own house: a villa estimated at 10 million dollars, or about 8.5 million euros. The mansion is in Montecito, an affluent town near Santa Barbara, which is two hours north of Los Angeles. To buy their new home, the couple refused to use money from Prince Harry’s family. The former actress and the son of Princess Diana preferred to make a mortgage of 7 million pounds, or 7.8 million euros, according to information from L’Express.
A detail to say the least surprising …
To buy their property, Archie’s parents have also reportedly received financial assistance from Prince Charles, Prince Harry’s father, who is keen to give them a hand in their new life in the United States. Prince Charles is said to pay for the couple’s security costs, which are high. In addition, the British tabloid also reveals that according to some sources, the new villa of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have been registered in the name of the mother of 39 years. It must be said that Meghan Markle she has American citizenship, unlike her husband, who is British.
