Meghan Markle has opened up on ‘not being able to afford’ her $ 14million mansion which she shares with Prince Harry and their two children, Archie and Lilibet

The Duchess of Sussex mentioned the struggle when being interviewed by The Cut.

She recalled looking for a new home outside of the UK and finally finding their Montecito mansion, which she and Prince Harry were unsure they’d be able to afford at the time.

Markle explained: “We were looking in this area (Montecito, California) and this house kept popping up online in searches.”

Prince Harry’s wife acknowledged that at the time, neither of them had a job and the property was on the market for $14.65milion.

“We didn’t have jobs, so we were just not going to come and see this house. It wasn’t possible,” she said. “It’s like when I was younger and you’re window shopping – it’s like ‘I don’t want to go and look at all the things that I can’t afford, that doesn’t feel good’.”

Markle said that she and the Duke of Sussex did ‘everything they could’ to secure their dream home, which she describes as ‘healing’.

Reportedly, the property is made up of nine bedrooms, sixteen bathrooms, a swimming pool and a tennis court.

After stepping away from their royal duties, Prince Harry and Markle secured multi-figure deals with both Netflix and Spotify, which is likely one of the reasons they managed to get their property.

Markle’s Spotify podcast has finally launched and in its most recent episode, she alleged the press has used the ‘N-word’ to describe her child.

She claimed: “There’s literally a structure by which if you want to release photos of your child, as a member of the family, you first have to give them to the Royal Rota.

“Why would I give the very people that are calling my children the N-word a photo of my child before I can share it with the people that love my child?

“You tell me how that makes sense and then I’ll play that game.”
