Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have purchased a private family home in Santa Barbara, California, Page Six reports. The royals have been living in the home for 6 weeks already. "Harry and Meghan have been quietly living in their own home in Santa Barbara since early July. They are not houseguests of Oprah or anyone else, they bought this home themselves. This is where they want to continue their lives after leaving the UK," a source told the outlet. The source also said the royals plan to put down roots in Santa Barbara, and "have thought about this carefully and researched it well. This is the place where they plan to be happy, make good friends and bring up Archie." The source would not divulge details about the residence, citing security concerns. Santa Barbara is one of the wealthiest communities in the U.S., with homes on sale for more than $100 million. Celebs like Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres own homes here.
