As they deal with the media storm, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Montecito home is threatened by a torrential downpour. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have had a busy start to the year. Since their Netflix docuseries “Harry & Meghan” premiered in 2022, Harry and Meghan have sparked controversy. Harry’s new memoir “Spare” was finally launched on January 10th.

The book delves deeply into Harry’s life as a senior royal, revealing shocking details about the British royal family, such as his physical altercation with his brother Prince William and the time the Duke of Cambridge and his wife, Kate Middleton, encouraged him to attend a Halloween party while dressed in his infamous Nazi costume. The divisive book details Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down as “senior” royals and achieve financial independence.

In a statement announcing his plans to release “Spare,” Harry said he wanted to share his story to show others “that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”

The explosive biography, which has reportedly raised some eyebrows within the Royal family and drawn mixed reactions from royal lovers, will be “honest and truthful,” he added. “I’m writing this as the man I’ve become, not the prince I was born as,” he continued.

In addition to the uproar over Harry’s book, he and Meghan are forced to leave their home in California due to record-breaking rainfall and flooding.

A strong storm in California forced thousands of Montecito residents, including the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, to flee their homes. According to the BBC, the Montecito Fire Department issued an order to immediately evacuate the area and its surrounding valleys on January 9 in the late afternoon due to severe rains and flooding.

Those unable to flee were sent to a high area or their innermost room. According to Fox Weather, the warning comes on the fifth anniversary of the terrible mudslides in Montecito in 2018, which resulted in 23 deaths, 167 injuries, and the destruction of hundreds of homes.

Ellen DeGeneres, a well-known television personality, posted a video of the region’s catastrophic floods on Instagram. She stated that the entire town of Montecito was being evacuated. “Five years ago today, the fires and mudslides that killed many people and destroyed many homes and lives occurred. This is ridiculous.”

After quitting their positions as senior royals in 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan moved into a $14 million Montecito home with their children, Archie and Lilibet. According to the Los Angeles Times, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may have left the property or never visited. According to reports, Harry is currently in Book York City promoting his new biography, “Spare.” According to the outlet, the couple’s agents did not respond quickly to requests for updates.
