Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan Markle, 40, realized that they would have to worry more and more about security in California, in the United States. According to The Sun, the couple’s mansion was invaded twice in a 12-day period in May. There is no information about whether the invaders captured anything.

According to the report, Santa Barbara police were called to the scene on May 19, and then returned to the mansion on May 31. Both times, Harry and Meghan were traveling and both were recorded as trespassing and property crimes in ‘suspicious circumstances’.
The couple has been living with their children at the Chateau of River Rock mansion since June 2020, and in the past 14 months, the Santa Barbara police have been called on six occasions for security reasons. The property has nine bedrooms, a spa, a children’s playground, a tennis court and a guest house. The property is located on a private road with a long driveway and large security gates.
Harry has never been afraid that losing the security of the British Royal House was one of his biggest fears when he decided to live in the United States. He and Meghan lost police protection in the UK after they decided to leave the royal family in 2020.
Earlier this year, Harry applied for judicial review to secure the right to police security on future visits to the UK. According to a statement, he will pay for this service, which he says is necessary to keep his family safe.
