While the surf world had its collective eye on Tom Brady x Gisele Bündchen x Kelly Slater over the extended weekend, England’s most famous second son and his wife took the penultimate step before finally joining our ranks. As you know, Prince Harry and Princess Meghan Markle made beef with the crown, a few years back, packed bags and moved to the former American colonies. They looked for homes here and there before finally settling in beachfront Montecito, very near Santa Barbara.
Very near Rincon too.
Surf fans eagerly anticipated the two picking up surfboards and adult learning this Sport of Kings but it appeared there might be no real interest… or at least until this extended weekend for it was then that TMZ snapped photos of the Sussexes enjoying a Jack Johnson concert at the famed Santa Barbara Bowl.
Per Glamour magazine:
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, back in California after Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral ceremonies, were recently spotted enjoying some soft rock at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Catching members of the royal family having fun at a nonroyal or charity-related event seems surreal to me somehow (like, can you imagine Kate Middleton at Coachella or King Charles III at Six Flags?).
TMZ published photos of the Sussexes taking in the mellow acoustic jams of Jack Johnson, the millennial Jimmy Buffet, at a packed concert on October 5 (no, I will not be explaining this epithet further). According to TMZ, Harry and Meghan watched the show from a special, cordoned section with 10 others, hugging and swaying along to the tunes like an almost normal married couple. Good for them!
The penultimate step preceded by drinking Kona Brewing Company’s Longboard Island Ale, wearing Patagonia shorts, feeling a whistling hollow in the soul. Followed by purchasing a Pyzel mid-length crisis.
Are you ready to welcome royalty?
