Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are ‘Royal’ no more and it appears reports of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex leaving Vancouver Island for the sunnier shores of Los Angeles appear to be true.
The Royal couple’s North Saanich mansion has now been listed for sale, all but confirming that Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and their young son Archie have left Canada’s west coast.
But in a surprising twist, the lightly-used mansion is now listed at only $13 million dollars, a full million dollars less than originally estimated.
According to sources, that’s because the place is absolutely filled to the brim with memorabilia from Markle’s former TV show Suits.
What was once an indoor hot tub is now a storage container for monogrammed cufflinks, and two entire bedrooms have been redesigned to store over two thousand dusty old posters.
“Honestly, the sheer amount of Suits stuff they left here is baffling,” said Realtor Henry Ocho. “There are some good finds — like signed photos and business cards, but also some real bizarre pieces, like hundreds of cheap clip-on ties and hastily-cut reams of the set’s carpeting strewn all over the house.”
“It’s an unprecedented situation,” said Alexandra Mary, Chairperson of the Victoria Real Estate Board. “At first I thought they had stockpiled all the merch so they could sell it off and replenish their fortune. But due to a clause in the Buyer Contract, the items cannot be sold and must stay within the bounds of the property. So whoever buys the house is stuck with it all.”
“Rich people do strange things,” said Ocho. “One time I sold a house that included a goat sauna. But this is arguably even weirder than that.”
This is not the first time one of Harry and Meghan’s properties has experienced a minor tv/film-related fiasco. In 2019, the pair’s British residence was reportedly closed down after a proliferation of merchandise and props from the 2011 film Horrible Bosses – in which Markle appeared for a single scene.
When asked to comment on whether this was all part of some kind of Royal-themed prank show, Harry and Meghan’s publicist refused to comment.
Victoria Buzz did receive a whoopee cushion emblazoned with the phrase “YOU GOT DUKE’D” a few days later in an unmarked package, but we have not yet been able to trace the sender.
