The long-anticipated series sparked a global conversation about the couple's life beyond the British monarchy – but of course – it was hard not to be distracted by the stylish backdrop. However, if you were watching to take note of Meghan and Harry's design ideas and decorating quirks, you might have been disappointed.
Instead of sharing an insight into their unofficial royal residence, the couple filmed in this $33m mansion, a nine minute drive from their $14 million estate. The Mediterranean-style property is now on the market, so you can explore rooms beyond those that appeared in the most discussed documentary of the year.
The six-bedroom property is truly one of the world's best homes – boasting a great regal room with a chandelier and arched windows where Meghan was extensively filmed. You can see the room in the documentary trailer here on Youtube.
There is a lot to admire about this living room – perhaps the most beautiful space in the home – from its cream marble floor to the soaring wooden ceilings that create a contrast against the otherwise neutral-toned room.
A black and white kitchen leads from the living space. The cooking space flows into a large dining room that follows the same color ideas and boasts views of the Santa Ynez Mountains, like much of the home.
Beyond the conventional living spaces, the home exhibits several amenities, including a bar, theater, hot tub, and pool on the grounds. There is also a wood-paneled library with space for hundreds of hardbacks – that also doubles as a luxe home office. These spaces flow onto vast terraces that blend indoor/outdoor living and frame the unrivaled view of the Pacific.
The property's exterior includes two acres of romantic walkways, citrus orchards, towering palm trees, and accent vines. The home also has a chicken coop for fresh eggs –a feature that is not dissimilar from Meghan and Harry's chicken coop that they created for their son, Prince Archie.
A picturesque guest house also sits on the grounds and is perfect for anyone who might drop by for some Southern California sun.
Meghan and Harry moved to Montecito in 2020, where they lived for a few months at Tyler Perry’s home before purchasing their home.
The town has long been a favorite escape for the wealthy, including John and Jacqueline Kennedy, who visited during their honeymoon in 1953. Today, celebrities including Ariana Grande, Oprah Winfrey, and Gwyneth Paltrow call the exclusive town their home.
