Meghan Markle is reportedly rubbing elbows with huge celebrities in Santa Barbara. The Duchess of Sussex is reportedly carving out a new lifestyle that locals dubbed her “The Princess of Montecito.”
How Does Meghan Markle Live Her Life In Montecito After Royal Status Reportedly Gives Her A Lot Of Leverage?
The former Suits star became an official member of the royal family when she married Prince Harry in 2018. However, in less than two years, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they were stepping back from their royal duties.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to leave the U.K. and settle in California. An unnamed source gave a glimpse of how Markle’s day goes by with Closer magazine.
The insider claimed Markle has been dining in lavish restaurants, hiking in hills and building friendships with celebrity A-listers, including Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Serena Williams, James Corden and neighbors Orlando Bloom and Kate Perry.
“There’s a lot more going on in Meghan’s world than people think, she just keeps it very private these days but her royal status gives her a lot of leverage. She spends most of her time in Montecito, but she heads into L.A. every week or so,” the source said.
Markle reportedly spends time in Oprah’s home and doesn’t go to theaters to watch movies despite being a former actress.
