Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made quite the big move when they packed their bags and traveled all the way from the U.K. to California (by way of Canada). And because this was such a huge decision (one which we've learned Princess Diana actually hoped to make herself), the royals wanted to ensure everything felt right, especially the new place they would call home. Now, in a new interview, the Duchess of Sussex revealed that one major symbol convinced them to pick their current residence in Montecito.
While talking with Allison P. Davis for The Cut, Markle discussed her and Prince Harry's house hunt in Montecito, saying, “We were looking in [that] area and this house kept popping up online in searches.” But at first, the couple didn't want to see the home. “We didn’t have jobs, so we just were not going to come and see this house,” Markle said. “It wasn’t possible. It’s like when I was younger and you’re window shopping—it’s like, I don’t want to go and look at all the things that I can’t afford. That doesn’t feel good.”
