Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a new home in Santa Barbara, California.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly moved into their new home in Santa Barbara at the beginning of July.

The nine-bedroom, 16-bathroom Montecito mansion, which sits on over seven acres of land isn’t what Harry’s is used to… but it is regal and reportedly loves his new home and is grateful for the outdoor space.

He issued a statement in which he said, “I’m just unbelievably fortunate and grateful to have outdoor space and see my son be able to be outside, because I know so many people just haven’t had that opportunity in the last five months,” Harry said on Saturday’s video chat, referring to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“Our little man is our No. 1 priority, but our work after that is the second priority,” he continued. “And we’re just trying to do everything we can to do our part to make the world a better place.”

The couple spent their covid lockdown at Tyler Perry’s Beverly Hills mansion.

According to sources, the main house’s amenities include a library, spa, wet and dry saunas, a gym, game room, arcade, theater, wine cellar, and a five-car garage. The outdoor features include a rose garden, tall Italian cypress trees, century-old olive trees, a tennis court, tea house, children’s cottage, and a pool. There’s also a two-bedroom, two-bathroom guesthouse on the property.
