Rising prices and queues at the coffee shop: a neighbor of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry told how Montecito changed after they moved
After officially retiring from royal duties, 39-year-old Meghan Markle and 36-year-old Prince Harry moved to Los Angeles in search of a quiet life. The couple, along with their son Archie, settled in a luxurious mansion of 1,700 square meters, which is located in the prestigious district of Montecito.
This place is especially loved by celebrities, because the secluded estates on the slopes of the hills provide them with a high level of security and privacy. Recently, one of the neighbors of Meghan and Harry in Montecito, the star of the movie "Rogue" Rob Lowe, told how the city has changed after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to it.
The Royal couple drew a lot of attention to my sleepy little town. Let me make a confession: once the royals move into your neighborhood, it will never be the same again,
Rob spoke to E!about the changes in Montecito, which he has called home for 26 years. News.
Lowe also admitted that the move of such important people has both its pros and cons, and also recalled that it was here that the famous TV presenter Oprah Winfrey once settled:
When Oprah moved here, it became a kind of revival of Montecito. Now the royals have settled here... The good news is that real estate prices have gone up because of this, and the bad news is that the lines at Starbucks are getting longer.
Rob Lowe also dispelled the rumor that the very scandalous interview of Meghan and Harry with Oprah Winfrey was recorded in his house:
For some reason, everyone thinks that the interview was filmed in my house. After a while, they also began to say that it was allegedly filmed in the mansion of my friend Ted Sarandos, who runs Netflix. I'll tell you what: I have no idea where it was filmed. My theory is that it was Oprah's house. It is only known that this place is kept secret.Recall that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry purchased their home in Montecito for $ 14.7 million. It features nine bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a library, an office, a spa, a gym, a game room, a theater, a wine cellar and a spacious garage.
