Meghan and Harry’s Montecito Move Causes Headaches For New Neighbors
Here’s what the people of Montecito are finding out about their new neighbors, Prince harry and Meghan Markle … everywhere they go, tourists, helicopters and paparazzi follow.
The quiet little town outside of Santa Barbara is still buzzing with its new residents, who have moved into a multi-million dollar mansion, but some locals are already tired of the area’s new normal.
Harry and Meghan haven’t even been seen in public, and their mere presence drives people crazy … not because of them, but because of the influx of paparazzi looking for the shot.
The scene on the pitch is pretty hectic, especially for an affluent area which is supposed to be an enclave for celebrities looking to escape the limelight … helicopters fly over Harry and Meghan’s hood, sometimes 4 times per day, and taste buds dot their home and a nearby mall.
Capricious royals also attract tourists … we’re told more visitors are showing up in town and asking local traders if they’ve seen Harry and Meghan.
Montecito is known as a paparazzi-free zone – Ellen degeneres, Oprah, Rob lowe, Carol burnett, Jane lynch and the Kardashians I have no problem eating in the restaurant and shopping downstairs – but that has all changed since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved in.
Most locals tell us that they want the popes to rest because they feel things are getting to the point where everyone’s privacy is compromised, and they are very bored.
As we reported … Harry and Meghan surfaced in Los Angeles last week, work with a charity to help children in need … but they still haven’t been seen in Montecito.
Locals are bracing for the worst … they expect Harry and Meghan to finally venture out after the pandemic, which they say will only make matters worse.
A Word to the Sage … if you’re visiting Montecito, don’t regurgitate anything you’ve read about Harry and Megan who put the city on the map. Locals say it was a high society town long before the royal family struck.
