The mansion Meghan and Harry filmed Netflix documentary in isn't … – Stuff

Online sleuths have worked out that the US mansion where Meghan and Prince Harry filmed interviews for their Netflix expose doesn’t belong to them, and is on the market for US$33.5 million (NZ$52.5 million).
The Santa Barbara mansion is up the road from where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reside in Montecito, California.
A comparison of footage from the Netflix documentary and listing shots of the main living space at 888 Lilac Drive – for sale through US portal Zillow and Forbes Global Properties – reveals the location.
A Reddit thread on the Lilac Drive mansion has sprung up, dedicated to showing the property does not belong to the pair, who have lived in the US since 2020 with three-year-old son Archie and their 18-month-old daughter, Lilibet.

Any assumption made by fans that they filmed in their own house has been obliterated by an eagle-eyed scout who first posted.
One thread follower put the call out for others to track down the home where they filmed the Oprah interview.
Another said: “Are we even surprised? But damn, great job on this find from anon (sic). I had an inkling that wasn’t their house in the series because it looked way too nice and the decor was not Olive Garden-y enough for me to believe it was at their 16 bathroom nightmare.”
The mansion has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, vast terraces, a gym, theatre, bar, games room, pool and guest house, capped off by ocean views.
The property previously belonged to direct-mail company Quadriga Arts CEO Mark Schulhof, who reached a US$25 million settlement with New York regulators in 2014 to handle allegations of deceptive fundraising after an investigation into its charity practices.
