The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will soon be moving into the first home they bought themselves. The home is located in Santa Barbara and they plan to settle and raise their boy, Archie, there.
A source told the New York Post‘s Page Six Column:
“Harry and Meghan have been quietly living in their own home in Santa Barbara since early July. They are not houseguests of Oprah or anyone else, they bought this home themselves. This is where they want to continue their lives after leaving the UK.
“This is the first home either of them has ever owned. It has been a very special time for them as a couple and as a family to have complete privacy for six weeks since they moved in.
“They intend to put down their roots in this house and the quiet community, which has considerable privacy. This is where they want to bring Archie up, where they hope he can have as normal a life as possible.”
Harry, 35, and Meghan, 39, have opted for a quiet community to settle down in, according to IOL.
The sourced continued:
“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].”
So far, details about the couple’s home, how much it cost et cetera, have been kept closely-guarded secrets. The insider added:
“They have thought about this carefully and researched it well. This is the place where they plan to be happy, make good friends and bring up Archie, giving him the chance to play with other children his age.”
A spokesperson for the couple told the gossip column:
“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.”
