Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been attempting to establish a home in Montecito for the past three years. However, it hasn't been smooth sailing. Their neighbors have openly expressed their displeasure. The premiere of the new book about the royal family emerged as a catalyst for definitive actions by their neighbors.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue to be the focus of attention even after their departure from the royal family. Their activities are frequently covered in the tabloids, and the Sussexes meanwhile, willingly participate in interviews and release new narratives about royal family life, much to the irritation of some.

Since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moved to Montecito in 2020, their quest for peace has been elusive. Helicopters frequently fly over their house, and local media scrutinizes their every move. This has left their neighbors increasingly frustrated leading to emphatic reactions.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's neighbors show little affection

The residents of Montecito are renowned for their lack of warmth towards Harry and Meghan. Their lives are a constant source of commotion, and paparazzi always linger about, eagerly hunting for new stories about the former royal couple. The dissatisfaction in the neighborhood has escalated to the level where local bookstores refuse to stock the latest book by Omid Scobie, "Endgame". As reported by GB News, they disapprove of the couple's treatment of their own parents.

Bookstores in Montecito have rejected the book "Endgame". The neighbors opine that Harry and Meghan disrespect their parents. They perceive the couple to be overly harsh towards their own family members. The Sussexes and their lifestyle do not earn respect from them, as Kinsey Schofield reported on GB News.

Do you believe Meghan and Harry stand a chance at mending fences with their neighbors?
