Meghan and Harry are reportedly looking to settle down in Santa Barbara, a picturesque city which is only just 160 kilometres from Los Angeles.

"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," the source said.

The city of Santa Barbara is an affluent community, meaning Meghan and Harry will likely be rubbing shoulders with plenty of celebrities including Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres and Rob Lowe.

Harry and Meghan's first home together was Frogmore Cottage, a historic Grade II listed property in Windsor.

It was the first home the couple were able to really spend time together when they first were married.

La controvertida biografía no oficial sobre los duques de Sussex ha sacado a la luz numerosos detalles de su vida en palacio. - En noviembre de 2018, la Familia Real británica celebró el 70º cumpleaños de Carlos de Inglaterra. Lo hizo distribuyendo unas entrañables fotografías junto a la duquesa de Cornualles, sus dos hijos (el duque de Cambridge y el de Sussex) y las esposas y los hijos de estos. Al príncipe de Gales se le veía feliz, mirando a la cámara mientras sostenía a su nieto George entre los brazos. Todo parecía tranquilo y pacífico en este posado institucional dominado por las sonrisas y la armonía familiar. Pero, según hemos sabido casi dos años después, la intrahistoria de aquellas instantáneas nada tiene que ver con lo que se nos mostró en su momento. - En las páginas de Finding Freedom se recoge que aquel posado, motivado por la celebración del cumpleaños de Carlos de Inglaterra, no fue sino una "pesadilla absoluta". El motivo no era otro que la tensión existente entre los dos hermanos, Guillermo y Harry, que no quisieron hacer un esfuerzo para facilitar la tarea al equipo encargado de tomar las fotografías. Asimismo, se dejaba entrever ya en aquel momento que la relación entre el príncipe de Gales y su hijo pequeño era "complicada".

In January, after the pair announced they had the intention to step down as senior royals, Megs and Harry spent their time coupled up in Canada on Vancouver Island.

Eventually, when the pair trekked it to Los Angeles to finally settle and look for a home to buy, reports showed they stayed in Tyler Perry’s $23.8 million Beverly Hills mansion.
