She swapped her promising career of a successful Hollywood star for a life of luxury in the royal family, from which she and her husband Harry gradually withdrew. She and her son Archie live in America, where, by the way, the house she grew up in is currently for sale. Do you wonder where the Duchess comes from and where she lives?
Close to the heart. Meghan bids farewell to former family home
A house that could be labelled a symbol for Meghan Markle's childhood years is currently up for grabs. Located in Los Angeles in the heart of Woodland Hills, it will probably take your breath away when you learn that the price of such a house is similar to the villas in Prague. The price is set at 21 million crowns. What may at first sight surprise you is that this is not a magnificent castle with grand interiors, furnished in a modern style, which Meghan definitely has a thing for. Actually it is a minimalistic, yet cozy, classically furnished house designed to enjoy a peaceful life. Are you curious how it looks inside? There is a dining room, two bedrooms, a bathroom, and there are two garages and a nice terrace with a seating area.
Home, Sweet Home
Meghan Markle won't forget this house easily. She spent her beautiful first years of life there, back then still in an ideal family circle surrounded by her siblings and warm love. Unfortunately, the parents' marriage did not last long, and frequent moving followed. She didn't always have it easy, but got support from her mum, whom she grew up with.
How is the Duchess of Sussex living today?
You could say that in the case of Meghan, there’s a strong sense of a fairy tale about Cinderella where an ordinary girl from an ordinary home became a "princess" with a luxurious palace. The beauty really married the prince, and although Harry gave up his royal duties, the couple still lives royally. They moved to Santa Barbara, California, nicknamed also as "the Beverly Hills of the north," bought a house for 330 million crowns. There is no doubt that this is a prestigious address. "Over the fence" they can be greeted by presenter Oprah Winfrey, actress Gwyneth Paltrow or film director George Lucas.
The vast residence is admired for its size and division. It contains nine bedrooms, sixteen bathrooms, a library, private theater, tennis court, wine cellar, gym and a five place garage. Meghan and Harry crave privacy, and they don't want to be seen too much, on the other hand, they want independence. I hope their dreams come true!
