MONTECITO, CALIFORNIA: Meghan Markle has once again attracted negative comments from people after claiming that she initially thought getting the $14M Montecito mansion, where she currently lives with husband Prince Harry and their children, was not possible for them. The former actress has been in the headlines ever since her latest bombshell interview to The Cut, where she opened up about the time when they left the royal family in the UK to have an independent life in the US.

She told features writer Allison P Davis that the house, which she calls home now, was not on her list at first. Davis has described the abode of the Sussexes as “a classic Tuscan villa, a Napa vineyard, and a manicured Beverly Hills country club decorated with careful, considered coastal tones for a casual air — the home equivalent of billionaires dressing down in denim."

Markle said: “We were looking in this area [Montecito, California] and this house kept popping up online in searches,” before explaining, “We didn’t have jobs, so we just were not going to come and see this house. It wasn’t possible. 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.”

However, as everyone knows, Harry and Meghan ultimately got the house after they famously signed “a reported $25 million Spotify deal and a reported $100 million Netflix deal,” The Cut noted. Describing what attracted them most about the house, the mother-of-two noted: “One of the first things my husband saw when we walked around the house was those two palm trees. See how they’re connected at the bottom? He goes, ‘My love, it’s us.’ And now every day when Archie goes by us, he says, ‘Hi, Momma. Hi, Papa.’”

She also claimed that just by looking at “the grounds”, they told the real-estate agent, “We have to get this house.” “We did everything we could to get this house. Because you walk in and go …Joy. And exhale. And calm. It’s healing. You feel free,” the Duchess added.

Though the interviewer felt Meghan’s frankness about her struggles to find a good place to reside were “utterly humble”, many on the internet did not agree. A Tweet read, “When people can't pay rent, high gas price, & can't buy median priced houses. Sounds like luxury than struggles.” Another user wrote, “How clueless r the royals? STRUGGLING over a $14.5M house! Wow such depraviry they have to face. Entitled?” “#CostOfLivingCrisis How out of touch is the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle?” the said another. “Meghan ‘We didn’t have jobs I don’t want to go look at All The Things I can’t afford’ Poor Meghan, how terrible, she had a hard time affording her $14M+ mansion. #MeghanMarkle takes narcissism to a whole new level. She makes Gemma Collins seem likable. #DuchessofMontecito,” the fourth one shared.
