It seems as though Harry and Meghan are dealing with some pretty scary security breeches...
The pair have stolen the spotlight over the last few months.
And it seems all the attention could be causing a lot of anxiety over their security.
Now, the royal couple always planned to split their time between America and the UK.
"We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. "This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity."
This has been a huge deal for Harry and Meghan...
And, obviously, their decision shook things up.
Apparently, at the time, the pair didn't tell anyone about the news, instead opting to break it through Instagram.
According to the BBC, no other senior members of the Royal Family were consulted - including the Queen - and Buckingham Palace is "disappointed." The report also claims that senior royals are said to be "hurt" by the controversial announcement.
But can they really blame Meghan and Harry for making this decision?The couple, especially Meghan, have received an unbelievable amount of negative press and comments over the years - which is enough to drive anyone mad.
The couple has now moved to California with their son, Archie.
Making it across the border mere hours before it closed, where they rode out the coronavirus pandemic in a secluded compound in Malibu.
And since the move, things have changed for the better."Meghan’s thrilled to have escaped the chaos of London. She feels like a new person," a source close to the pair said. "On top of not being hounded by the British press 24/7, Meghan reportedly likes that she doesn’t have to worry about following outdated royal protocol anymore."
They can now live a normal life.“Meghan can go out in yoga pants and not be criticized for not following a dress code. She feels more relaxed and loves walking around fresh-faced with barely any makeup on."
And to make things even better for the pair...
Harry and Meghan then bought a $14.65 million mansion in Montecito, Santa Barbara... making them neighbors with Oprah and Ellen DeGeneres.
Even though many fans are happy for the couple's new (and very lavish) life...

As it turns out police have been called to Harry and Meghan's mansion 9 times in 9 months.
And people aren't all that sympathetic...
Harry recently mentioned his security concerns with Oprah...
Meghan also claimed the decision not to make her son a prince meant he would not get protection.
But round-the-clock police protection was quickly taken away when they stepped down as senior royals...
Decided by the UK government body that oversees protection.
Prince Charles then reportedly said he would not fund security for the pair...
Harry said: "I was born into this position. I inherited the risk. So that was a shock to me."
Harry told Oprah, in their recent interview, that they were informed at "short notice" their security would be cut off.
The prince said, "Their justification was a change in status," adding that he "pushed back."
Former chief superintendent Dai Davies, in the UK, said the couple's plans were "utterly unrealistic."
Davies said he was "gobsmacked" that they expected British taxpayers to pay an estimated £4million ($5.5million) a year.
He added: "It was utterly unrealistic to think they could continue to have their royal protection team working in America – in fact it would have put their [police] lives at risk."
Poor Harry and Meghan. Trump Admin refused to pay for their security.— .Funkytown™ 8.0 (@Funky8_0) March 8, 2021
Here's a thought, sell this $17.5 million mansion and pay for your damn security. Better yet, GET A JOB! pic.twitter.com/5QfSlteMFF
As well as this, UK officers can't carry guns under US laws or access intelligence surrounding potential threats.
Following their lack of security, Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office has since responded to 9 alerts...
Including twice over Christmas to repremand a trespasser who had traveled from Ohio to their home.
The property's alarm system has also been triggered a whopping 5 times.
The data was released after the couple shared their security fears in their bombshell interview with Oprah.
They were labeled as "alarm activations"...
And all occurred in the early hours of the morning.
At 4.13 pm on Christmas Eve, sheriff's deputies were called to the property after a man trespassed...
MERRY CHRISTMAS HARRY, MEGHAN, ARCHIE & THE PUPS 😭 pic.twitter.com/Ntge1iwTjr— michelle (@ddarveyy) December 23, 2020
Nickolas Brooks, from Ohio, was first let off with a warning but he showed up again on Boxing Day at 2.54 pm and was later charged for trespassing.
The second call was listed as a "Property Crime" and said Brooks had traveled to California from Ohio.
Brooks subsequently said he may have been "high" when he trespassed the house.
He said: "I don't know why I went to their place, that's kind of where I ended up. I drove across the country - I know it's crazy."
"I've been told to stay away and that I'm never allowed back there but I don't have to appear in court. I was in jail for a night and they told me to stay away in future."
The most recent call was at 2.21 am on February 16 this year...
After the alarm was triggered once again...
A spokeswoman for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office would not provide details surrounding the calls.
