The Sussexes’ Santa Barbara move follows the couple’s two major relocations earlier this year. After announcing their decision to step away from the royal family back in January, Harry, Meghan, and their young son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, spent time in a remote part of Vancouver Island, Canada, before heading to Meghan’s home town of Los Angeles. People reported that the pair temporarily stayed in Tyler Perry’s Beverly Hills mansion while they searched for their new family residence.
