‘Madness’ Harry and Meghan’s bathroom setup branded ‘clownish’ in California drought


PRINCE HARRY and Meghan Markle’s mansion has come under fire for the number of bathrooms it has as California faces a drought.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Montecito home reportedly has 16 bathrooms. Commentator Shane Watson describes the number as “insane”, adding that it looks “more clownish than ever” as drought-stricken California enforces water restrictions.

Writing for the Daily Telegraph, the commentator said: “The easiest way to spot a Celebrity Clown, or at least one of the ways, is they live in a 16-bathroom house, and there are two of them and two under five (see the Sussexes).

“As you know – but let’s put it out there one more time because it never ceases to make us boggle – Harry and Meghan’s Montecito residence has seven more bathrooms than it has bedrooms.

“That is nine en-suites, plus another strategically placed seven conveniences.

“It always was an insane number of bathrooms but now California is in the middle of a drought, water restrictions are in place, and the madness of this sort of empty-room living is looking more clownish than ever.

“Let’s just pause to think about those redundant rooms for a moment.

“At a guess, no more than four bathrooms are in regular use, and that’s including the nanny’s.”

Harry and Meghan quit royal duties in March that year and moved across the pond.

It emerged in August 2020 that they were living in their new house with their son Archie and have since welcomed daughter Lili.

Speaking at the time, a spokesman for the couple said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into their family home in July of this year.

“They have settled into the quiet privacy of their community since their arrival and hope that this will be respected for their neighbours, as well as for them as a family.”

The mansion is said to boast nine bedrooms, a games room, home theatre, spa facilities, an elevator, gym, swimming pool and tennis court.

The couple lived at Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace for a short period of time when they were working royals.

They went on to live at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor before stepping back and moving to the US.
