Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s security guards have been accused of rudely brushing off an elderly neighbor in Montecito, California.
Frank McGinity, an 88-year old US Navy veteran, claimed that he approached the home of the royal couple after they moved in the area. The man claims that soon after they moved in, he had wanted to gift some films about the history of the area.
“I have a big house next to Harry and Meghan’s property and I live in the guest house while renting the main house out on Airbnb,” he said, according to the Montecito Journal via the Independent.
“Harry and Meghan live on old McCormick property and I went up to their gate with the films on a CD, but they weren’t interested,” he claimed.
“The gate guy turned me away and wouldn’t take the film, just saying ‘they’re not interested.’ I was trying to be neighborly,” he alleged.
He added: “We don’t see them very much around here. It’s surprising they came here. People are typically older. It’s where the elephants come to die.”
McGinity noted that he lives a “tiara’s toss or two” from the Susexes’ property.
The royals moved into the property back in 202 with their son Prince Archie. The couple also welcomed daughter, Princess Lilibet, two years later.
A source previously told Page Six that the home is “the first home either of them has ever owned” and they were excited to “put down their roots in this house and the quiet community, which has considerable privacy.”
