Rumors that Prince Harry has a room kept waiting for him at a luxury hotel, are 'not true' according to Harry's rep. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle like to do things differently – that’s part of the reason the pair swapped life as working royals for their California dreams in Montecito.

New reports from The Sun implied the couple takes a leaf out of the likes of Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw and Big – in that they’re open to spending some nights apart.

The tabloid reported that Harry keeps a room on reserve at a luxury hotel not far from their Montecito ranch. With a source claiming the room is regarded as his “escape place.”

However, a rep for Prince Harry has since spoken to Page Six vehemently denying the claim telling the publication, “This is not true.”

And it's not the only time rumors about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's private lives have been reported as fact. Previously, it's been written that the Duke of Sussex likes to stay at the exclusive San Vicente Bungalows, a private members club in Los Angeles.

The bungalows welcome a very select guest list, who often mingle at the exclusive hideaway after going to the popular gym class, Barry’s Bootcamp, nearby.

An unnamed source, who is a supposed member of the secretive members club in West Hollywood, also referred to the bungalows as an “escape place” for Harry.

While the rumors have been denied, there's no doubt that the privacy guaranteed at these sorts of private members' clubs would be a welcome tonic for famous faces. Journalists are banned from entering and guests are thought to be told to cover the cameras on their phones.

They are also told not to discuss anything members or their guests witness during their visit, and they are banned from approaching or interrupting other members when inside the clubhouse.

Even joining is made deliberately tricky, to vet out any unwelcome figures.

Annual fees are thought to be around $4000 (£3200) and applicants must be vetted by a panel that is rumored to include notable figures like Hollywood icon Julia Roberts.
