    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are facing a "freak flood" evacuation the night before the pair are set for their tell all book release tour.

    Weather reports from Montecito, California, have warned that heavy rain after days of severe stormy weather are inbound, with Montecito Fire Department urging residents to leave their homes immediately.

    Five inches of rain has fallen already and fire department officials are warning that the worst is yet to come, with floods set for the afternoon and evening.

    It is as yet unclear whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their two children were at home during the emergency announcement for evacuation.

    California is set to be hit with a flurry of severe weather this week after days of freak floods, heavy rain, snow and damaging winds that have all contributed to a risk in flooding.

    Rising rivers and mudslides have also been warned of as residents are told to evacuate the area of Montecito.

    An evacuation order from the area read: "IMMEDIATE EVACUATION ORDER issued to the ENTIRE MONTECITO COMMUNITY. Includes all 15 zones of the Montecito Community".

    One person living in the area tweeted: "I live in Montecito and we're under evac orders due to flooding. Heard Riven Rock where H&M live is getting nailed. They're next to Cold Springs creek which is probably flooding."

    Anna Botting of Sky News noted that if Prince Harry was at home he would "have to be on the move tonight" as the "entire community" had been ordered to evacuate.

    It comes as the pair prepare to set out on a tell all book tour to promote the memoir from Prince Harry, Spare, which has seen a flurry of allegations levelled at members of the Royal Family.

    One such claim has seen a defence expert say that the Duke has put his "family in danger" after the Prince claimed he had killed 25 members of the Taliban when in Afghanistan.

    His comments, according to expert Will Geddes were not just "immature" but have increased the "danger of suicide bombers" to his family.

    Daily Star previously reported the comments, with expert Geddes questioning the reliability of the comments, adding that people who operate in those conflict zones never "disclose that kind of information."

    Further comments were also heard from the Taliban themselves, who claimed that the bragging Prince was incorrect about the "chess piece" claim.
