Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated their first Thanksgiving in Montecito with their 1-year-old son Archie and Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.
Ahead of Thanksgiving, a source close to the Sussexes told Harper’s Bazaar that the celebration would be a “home-cooked meal” featuring “traditional Thanksgiving dishes, including recipes made with fresh vegetables from their garden.”

The source added that the couple were looking forward “to celebrating their first American Thanksgiving in the States as a family.”
Harry and Meghan relocated to the community of Montecito in sleepy Santa Barbara in July, buying a $14M mansion that’s overlooked by the Santa Ynez mountains and which is surrounded by sprawling gardens. There are olive trees, cypresses, tiered rose gardens—and veggies too, it would seem!
As Montecito is just 90 miles north of L.A., it means that Doria can easily visit her grandson Archie, who is “thriving and growing quickly” according to the source.
