The media outlet reports that back in June, the royal couple snagged the luxe 14,563-square-foot home located in upscale Montecito, a two-hour drive from Los Angeles.

Built in 2003, the multi-million dollar estate boasts fabulous lawns, rose gardens, tall Italian cypress trees, century-old olive trees, a tennis court, a tea house, a children’s cottage, and a pool. 

Sitting on 5.4 acres of secluded land, the exterior of the home is said to also provide plenty privacy with a long driveway and a large gate.

Daily Mail reports that the Sussex family purchased their dream home after securing a $9.5 million mortgage. If this is true, that could mean the couple made an estimated down-payment of $5 million towards the mansion.

A source told Daily Mail, that the couple “feel proud to have struck out on their own and they are saying they bought it without any help from his [Prince Harry’s] family.”

The source continued, “They do have a mortgage, but they see this as their own place, free from relying on anyone else – a proper family home.”

Estimated to be worth $43 million combined, we are quite positive the couple will be able to stand true to their goal of being “independent” of the royal family. Cheers!
