Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have reportedly had two intruder alerts at their Montecito mansion since the start of May.

The pair moved to the US in 2020 after stepping down as senior royals.

But in recent months, police have reportedly been alerted to two intruder scares at the Duke and Duchess’ California home.

Santa Barbara Police records show officers were deployed to the house amid reports of trespassers on May 19 at around 5.44pm.

The date marked the pair’s fourth wedding anniversary.

While a second intruder alert reportedly took place on May 31 at around 3.21pm, according to the Sun.

Police have reportedly had to deal with six reports of security alerts at the Montecito mansion in the last 14 months.

It comes after Harry won a bid to bring a High Court claim against the Home Office over his security arrangements while in the UK.

The Duke of Sussex is taking legal action over a decision not to allow him to pay for police protection for himself and his family when visiting from North America.

In the first stage of the case earlier this month, the duke’s lawyers asked Mr Justice Swift to grant permission for a full hearing to have a judge review the Home Office’s decision.

In a judgment on Friday, the High Court judge said the case could proceed, granting permission for part of Harry’s claim to have a judicial review.
