A Montecito mansion known as Carlifornia’s Palace of Versailles is hitting the market for a colossal $29,500,000 in an ultra-exclusive neighbourhood.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle live with their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and daughter Elizabeth ‘Lilibet’ Alexandra Mary Windsor in this stunning mansion in Montecito, California.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are planning to leave their California mansion because they are ‘not over the moon’ with it, reports say. The couples are reportedly looking to move from their nine-bedroom property in the exclusive neighborhood of Montecito after just 18 months as they do not like its location.
Insiders have claimed the couple are now looking at other places to raise their children Archie, two, and Lilibet, six months.
It comes after they spent their first Christmas as a family in the sprawling mansion, even showing a glimpse of their baby Lilibet for the first time on their Christmas card.
The couple swapped their UK base, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, for the beautiful US property which they purchased in June 2020.
From a spa to a tennis court and even their own Private Playground for their children to enjoy, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s epic home is another level of luxury…
The Duchess gave a full look at her incredible home office on her 40th birthday as she launched a special initiative.
Meghan sat at her rustic wooden desk on one of two cream dining room style chairs, while the other was draped with a Hermes blanket, and behind her, a traditional fireplace was in full view.
The mother-of-two used a stack of white books to prop her laptop up to eye level, and her sprawling desk was full of lots more aesthetically pleasing products in matching muted tones. We wish our home office looked this cool!
The Duchess of Sussex first unveiled the couple’s living room during a surprise appearance on America’s Got Talent. In the background there were several references to Meghan and Harry’s lives. In a stack of books, A Photographer’s Life; 1990-2005 by Annie Leibovitz, the celebrity photographer who has captured portraits of the Queen, Harry’s grandmother, is visible.
A source told the Daily 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.’
The insider added: ‘They want to stay in the neighbourhood or nearby but they aren’t over the moon about the house and the location.’
The couple bought their mansion, which boasts 16 bathrooms, in Montecito, California, last year after quitting frontline royal duties and moving to the US.
The keys to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor were later handed to Princess Eugenie, who is living there with husband Jack Brooks bank and their son August.
