The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a huge decision earlier this year, as they announced their intention to step back as senior members of the Royal Family. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first moved to Los Angeles and then relocated to Santa Barbara, slightly upstate on the coast of California. A spokesperson for the couple said: ""They have settled into the quiet privacy of their community since their arrival.
"They hope that this will be respected for their neighbours, as well as for them as a family."
The decision to step down came after months of speculation the Duchess could not settle into royal life.
In a documentary filmed throughout her 10-day tour of Africa with Harry in October, Meghan herself admitted that the media scrutiny "on top of trying to be a new mum or trying to be a newlywed" was really challenging.
The California native’s life changed so much since she married into the Royal Family in May, 2018.
