Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new struggle with neighbours at $14m Montecito mansion

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle purchased a home in one of the most exclusive areas of California, but they couldn’t have foreseen the hidden problems that would hit them years later.

The couple live in a sprawling $14.5 million mansion in Montecito with their two children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet. While the interior features seven bedrooms, thirteen and a half bathrooms and a home gym, decked out in a blend of minimalistic, Scandi and classic Mediterranean accents, the exterior is perhaps even more impressive with a chicken coop, a swimming pool and a playhouse for their kids.

But they may only be able to enjoy the latter features by navigating a displeasing aroma wafting over from a neighbouring farm. The downfall of being in a private area surrounded by countryside is that you don’t know exactly what will be on those farms. In the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s case, they live a mere 10 minutes from a cannabis farm, according to the Daily Mail.

Cannabis is legal in 38 states for medical use and 24 states for recreational use, and California falls into the latter category. That means their neighbours can grow the plants on an “industrial scale” which, although profitable, can cause an overwhelmingly powerful smell.
