Rumour has it that the couple borrowed the money to pay for the house from Harry's dad, Prince Charles, a story that has been debunked.

“Meghan and Harry finally feel like they are on their own, and it feels great. They bought this house without help from his family, they aren’t using it on loan from a friend as they had before. It’s truly theirs and they can’t wait to make it a home," a source close to the couple revealed.

Prior to the acquisition, the couple had put up with Movie mogul, Tyler Perry at his sprawling mansion.

However, they have battled with paparazzi who have tried to gain access to their home since they relocated to the United States.

In July 2020, the former royal couple sued a photographer for infringement of privacy.
