Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally have a place of their own. Not a palace. Not a cottage that needed three million taxpayer dollars to renovate. Not a Vancouver mansion owned by a mysterious businessman, or a sprawling Los Angeles mansion owned by the Boo 2! A Madea Halloween guy. A house where they can finally put down some roots. And, fortunately for us, it’s also a house that everyone already knows everything about.
Located in Montecito, California, the house—known as the “Chateau of Riven Rock”—has nine bedrooms and 16 bathrooms. It covers 14,563 square feet and was built in 2003 by Terry Cunningham, the Canadian chief executive of a software company that exists to help businesses “who aren’t equipped to tap into the value of geospatial data,” which you’d assume has to be most businesses. It has a wine cellar covered in gravel, its floors are made with T1-11 plywood, and it may or may not have a stripper pole in the gym.
