PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle are risking the wrath of Native Americans due to fears they're using a sacred water source to irrigate the grounds of their Californian mansion.
The couple's €14 million luxury hill-side home is built on land once owned by a Native American tribe known as the Chumash.
In the surrounding hills, there are a number of hot and cold springs, as well as a series of underground rivers, which some locals divert water to their homes from.
It's understood that Harry and Meghan are tapping into these sources and using it to water their vast gardens and grounds, something which isn't sitting well with Eleanor Fishburn, leader of the Chumash people.
This water is considered sacred to the tribe, and Eleanor says it's irresponsible for the Sussexes to use it for irrigation.
"For us, this water is a pure water, a holy water and a ceremonial water," she told The Sun.
"As a native population, it is sacred for us and the idea that people in the area are using water from springs to water their gardens is something that doesn't sit well with us."
Eleanor has even invited Harry and Meghan to meet with her so she could explain to them why what they were doing is wrong.
"It would be great if they came so we could explain our history and culture and let them know about how sacred the water is to us," she added.
"It would be good to explain to them that if they are using the water to irrigate their garden, they have an alternative choice."
Last month, skeletal remains of a man were found on land close to Harry and Meghan's mansion. These remains were thought to belong to a member of the Chumash tribe, who once lived all along the coast of California.
