John Frye, who works for the Santa Barbara Flood Control District, said: “It’s not if it happens again – it’s when.”

“Their place wasn’t touched during the mudslides but it’s near enough to the creek that you’d pay attention if it happened again," Terry Cunningham, who used to own the lavish abode, said, while Montecito Fire Chief Kevin Taylor warned: “We are still at risk for debris flow and will be for a couple of years.”

The duo — who left the royal family in 2020 — moved to the West Coast with their son, Archie, 2. In June 2021, they expanded their family and welcomed daughter Lilibet.

Though Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, have dealt with their fair share of neighborhood woes — their mansion was recently overtaken by a foul smell — they seem to be loving their new life in the U.S.

"Harry’s been out on his bicycle and walking his adopted labrador on Miramar Beach, and she’s been out shopping in both the upper village and lower village and they seem to be very, very happy as far as I can see," royal expert Richard Mineards, who also lives in Montecito, Calif., said. "They’ve made a lot of friends here, particularly Orlando [Bloom] and Katy [Perry] who live nearby on Park Lane."

“They also have good friendships with Ellen [DeGeneres] and Oprah [Winfrey] who live minutes away so they may well have been going over there and vice versa with the children," he added.

In fact, the dad-of-two is excited to make memories with his brood. “Making this move is really scary, like at every possible opportunity the forces that were working against us tried to make it impossible," he said. “Did I expect to find ourselves in this situation so quickly? No. I think we’ve done a really good job. I have no regrets, it’s incredibly sad, but I have no regrets at all because now I’m in a place where I feel like I should have been four years ago.”
