The Duke and Duchess of Sussex live in Montecito, California with children Archie, two, and Lilbet, who was born in June. It is located in an area that is said to have a higher risk of wildfires.
A source told the Sunday People: “There have been reports of walkers taking night trips near Harry and Meghan’s home.
“It is a potential threat to them and the children, not least because there are also allegations that walkers have smoked and thrown their cigarettes on the ground.
“Any fire there could easily get out of hand.”
About the problem, neighbor Bruce Savin told the Montecito Journal: “Last Saturday night at 9:30 PM, we saw dozens of hikers with flashlights.
“We watched in disbelief as a hiker took a drag on his cigarette before extinguishing it under his foot.
“Nightwalking is dangerous enough, but in a fire-hazardous area, it’s an absolute threat to all of us.”
