Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have ditched plans to move into a $3 million country retreat, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively, after stalkers and sex-crazed swingers tracked down its location!
The royals signed a two-year lease, but then Markle, who’s due to give birth in April, became terrified her safety had been compromised.
“Meghan and Harry are going to be paying more than $5,000 a month in rent on an empty home after deciding at the last minute not to move in,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “It’s all to do with Meghan’s fears over security.”
The getaway sits on four acres in the picturesque Cotswolds region of Southern England, but the area has been targeted by criminal gangs that conduct high-profile raids on tucked-away mansions.
The sprawling property backs onto a former Masonic lodge on one side and a cozy country pub on the other.
“Unfortunately, the place has become too toxic,” a source explained. “Harry and Megan rushed into signing the lease, and now the entire world knows where it is.
“It’s very secluded and will cost too much money to police. They’re now looking for somewhere even more private that won’t be a magnet for terrorists, stalkers and pervs.”
California-born Markle, 37, also feared being photographed by drones as she sunbathed outside in the summer months.
“Meghan saw how Kate Middleton was photographed topless when she was on holiday,” the source said. She doesn’t want to be exposed to that kind of thing by moving into a property known by everyone with access to the internet.”

What’s more, the quiet road that leads to the country house is a hot spot for sex-crazy cheaters and men trawling for gay hookups, RadarOnline.com has learned.
One random online user boasted in an X-rated web forum: “Lots of pull-offs and quiet spots nearby. Popular with couples, gay men and voyeurs. Watch for police!”
A palace insider added: “Meghan has already asked for a panic room to be installed in her and Harry’s royal residence at Frogmore Cottage.
“She’s become extremely paranoid about her safety. It’s unfortunate this dream hideaway has turned into such a nightmare!”
