The tranquility that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were looking for so much after leaving the royals and settling in the United States seems to have come to an end. Several media have reported the presence of intruders in the property of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in California.
From the Montecito mansion, valued at $15 million, the Sussexes have reported attempted break-ins by intruders twice in less than 12 days.
Intruders at Meghan and Harry’s California home?
According to several U.S. media reports, the couple were at home with their children Archie, 4, and Lilibet, 1, when the alarms went off. Santa Barbara police responded to a call alerting them to the presence of an intruder on the evening of May 19, the date of the couple’s fourth wedding anniversary.
Just 12 days later, on May 31, police officers went to the mansion for the same reason. On that occasion, the invasion occurred hours before the Sussexes and their children were due to head to England for Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee celebrations.
Over the past 14 months, police have gone to Meghan and Harry’s residence for “trespasser,” “property crime” and “suspicious circumstances” calls. The couple decided to beef up security and hired Christopher Sanchez, Barack Obama’s former bodyguard, and Alberto Alvarez, Michael Jackson’s former head of security.
