Harry and Meghan allegedly snubbed their elderly Navy veteran neighbor

It sounds like these ex-royals skipped their etiquette lessons. 

After Prince Harry, 38, and Meghan Markle, 41 moved to Montecito, California, they snubbed their elderly Navy Veteran neighbor, he claims. 

Frank McGinity, an 88-year-old US Navy vet, has been neighbors with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex ever since they moved to Montecito in 2020 during their controversial departure from the royal family (often referred to as “Megxit”). 

According to McGinity, he tried to bring them a gift in order to welcome them and be “neighborly,” but they were not gracious about it. 

In his memoir, “Get Off Your Street,” McGinity alleged that he approached the couple’s home to give them some of his homemade films about local history.

“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, adding that he lives “a tiara’s toss or two” away from their 18,000-square-foot home, which they purchased for $14.65 million in 2020. 

“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.

He said the security guard wouldn’t let him past the gate.

“The gate guy turned me away and wouldn’t take the film, just saying ‘They’re not interested.’ I was trying to be neighborly.”

Harry and Meghan live in the nine-bedroom, 16-bathroom mansion with their 4-year-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and their 1-year old daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. 

An insider recently claimed that the couple might leave the neighborhood and move to Malibu.

“Harry and Meghan are reviewing their living options with Malibu being a place of interest,” the insider said. “They have secretly visited the area a couple of times and have been out and about, looking at what’s there.”

The source added that moving to Malibu would help Markle focus on Hollywood, and it would be beneficial because their neighbors would be fellow celebs such as Lady Gaga, Jonah Hill and Mindy Kaling.

If they do move, it remains to be seen what kind of reception they would get from their new neighbors. 

Their move might also be complicated, because celebrities are reportedly avoiding them, in order to stay in Prince William and Kate Middleton’s good graces.

“We don’t see them very much around here,” McGinity said. 

“It’s surprising they came here. People are typically older. It’s where the elephants come to die.”
