The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly considering leaving their Montecito residence amid claims the royal couple was not as pleased as Punch about the property and its location. Sources say Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now on the hunt for a new home in the same neighborhood.

According to an insider, the Sussexes want to remain in the Montecito area. The couples' current abode overlooks the ocean and houses a pool, a gym, a tennis court, two guest houses, a wine cellar, a home theater, and a spa, Cosmopolitan reported.

Harry and Meghan moved across the pond in 2020 after quitting royal duties, with the Sussex mansion also near the homes of other celebrity A-listers, including Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres.

"They are thinking of selling their house there," a source familiar with the situation said. "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.”

The family, for years, has been private about their life at home and rarely shares glimpses of their California home. On Meghan's 40th birthday video with Melissa McCarthy, the former actress was filmed in her super chic office, where her husband did his part in making a sneaky appearance in the bloopers.

“They want to stay in the neighborhood or nearby but they aren’t over the moon about the house and the location," they added per Express.

In England, Meghan and Harry also have a home called the Frogmore Cottage, where Harry's cousin, Princess Eugenie, is currently living with her family. Harry used to stay at the property and lived there when he returned to England in April 2021 following the death of Prince Philip.

Meanwhile, royal experts believe the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would make a return to the United Kingdom this spring for the Invictus Games despite the family rift. This would also mark the first time their daughter, Lilibet Diana, would meet the Queen for the first time.

The sporting event, which Harry founded for the wounded, injured, and ailing servicemen and women, both serving and veterans, would overlap with Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee weekend in June.

The celebration will mark her 70 years as monarch, the longest reign on the British throne in history, according to Marie Claire.

The family welcomed their baby girl, weighing 7 pounds, 11 ounces at the time, on June 4, 2021 at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California. Alexi Lubomirski
