‘Stalker’, 29, arrested lurking outside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s £12m California mansion in middle of the night | The Sun

A SUSPECTED stalker has been arrested after he was reportedly caught lurking outside of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Montecito mansion.

The Sussexes and their two children aren't believed to have been at home when Kevin Garcia Valdovinos, 29, was arrested on Monday night.

The alleged stalker has already been released on a £2,000 bail, according to TMZ.

He was lurking around the property after 2am on Monday, and was placed under citizen's arrest by security before police arrived.

Kevin allegedly told security something that prompted his arrest, but police have not commented.

In 2020, Nickolas Brooks drove from Ohio and trespassed on the couple's property.

He admitted to The Sun that he may have been “high” when he was caught at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s nine-bedroom home on Boxing Day.

He had driven more than 2,300 miles to the couple’s £11million West Coast pad from his modest £67,000 Ohio house, in America’s Midwest.

He was arrested by Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Deputies at 2.54pm on Boxing Day – two days after he was first given a warning for trespassing on the property.

Prince Harry and Meghan moved into their mansion in June of 2020, and the estate offers sweeping views of California.

The sprawling nine-bed, 16-bath home in Santa Barbara sits on 5.4 acres of land and features a library, office, spa, gym, game room, wine cellar and five-car garage, it's believed.

The estate also boasts sweeping lawns, tiered rose gardens, tall Italian cypress trees, blooming lavender, olive trees, a tennis court, tea house, children's cottage and a pool. 

The couple formerly feared for their children's safety after drones flew over their home snapping photos of them and their son.

Sources have claimed the Harry and Meghan saw drones flying as low as 20 feet over their property.

Low flying drones are believed to be operated by paparazzi photographers, but are also being treated as potential terrorist threats.

A friend added: "They see these drones coming in at them, and they guess that they are being operated by photographers, but they can’t just assume that."

"They are not asking for any special treatment; they are just asking for the safety and security we all expect in our own homes to be respected."
