Prince Harry and Meghan Markle rented a beach house to record their podcast for a costly amount of $400 an hour.
The team of the podcast ‘Teenager Therapy’ paired up with the royal couple for a conversation on teenage mental health.
The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex spoke to three high school children for the podcast recorded in support of World Mental Health Day earlier this month. Rumor has it that the couple met the teenagers in their new Montecito mansion. However, these rumors were disproved as The Daily Mail confirmed that the podcast was recorded at a rental home.
The luxurious property is located at a short distance from Harry and Meghan’s home, by Miramar Beach. It is listed on giggster.com at $400 per hour, for a minimum of a three hour booking, justifying the price with a description saying it is “on the sand in Montecito”.
The beach house comprises of four bedrooms and three baths laid out across 2,500 square feet. The front garden faces the beach and permits up to 15 cast and crew members for filming and photo-shoots.
People and brands that have used the house for projects are mentioned in the advert by the owner. This includes the Duke and Duchess too.
The description of the house reads, “The house has tons of style and plenty of off-street parking.
Just off the 101 and 100 yards down the beach from the new Rosewood Miramar resort.
“Past shoots include Ralph Lauren, Serena and Lily, Free People, and an interview with Prince Harry and Meghan.”
The Spotify based podcast, Teenager Therapy emphasized on Twitter that the episode had not been recorded at the Sussexes’ residence. The podcast hosts described themselves as “five stressed, sleep deprived, yet energetic teens sit down and talk about the struggles that come with being a teenager”.
Meghan Markle shared her experience with mental health and said social media is “a great way to connect, but it also ends up being a place where there’s a lot of disconnection.”
“I can speak personally too. I’m told that in 2019, I was the most trolled person in the entire world, male or female” she added.
Being pregnant with Archie did not even stop the trolls. She said, “Now, eight months of that I wasn’t even visible—I was on maternity leave or with a baby.
“Even though our experience is unique to us and obviously can seem very different to what people can experience on the day-to-day, it’s still a human experience—and that’s universal.
“We all know what it feels like to have our feelings hurt, we all know what it feels like to be isolated or othered.”
