After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s unprecedented “Megxit” from the U.K to Canada, the royal couple have already relocated again to Los Angeles, California. Markle’s hometown, Fox News reports.
According to People magazine, the royal couple has “been living in a secluded compound and haven’t ventured out amid the coronavirus pandemic.”
Rumors of a potential move to America have been circulating since the couple announced in January that they’d “step back” as senior members of the royal family and move away from the U.K. part-time.
A source told Entertainment Tonight, “It was always their plan to eventually be based in California since their work life will be focused in the U.S.,”
Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, a former makeup artist, yoga instructor and former social worker is also located in Los Angeles.
Their move occurred just in time before the border between Canada and the U.S. closed last Saturday amid the coronavirus pandemic, sources told the publications. The move also comes amid rumors of Markle’s return to Hollywood following her first voice over gig as the narrator of Disney’s upcoming “Elephant” documentary.
It was reported last month that Markle and Harry were “looking at houses” in Los Angeles for the summer.
“They love being in Canada, but they are looking at houses in L.A., too,” a friend who is part of their circle told People magazine.
“They’ll likely have houses in both places,” the pal added. The insider said life in Vancouver Island is similar to the one Markle enjoyed in Los Angeles. “[The couple] go for long walks, they do yoga, and Meghan cooks,” the friend said. “They are real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs.”
The outlet noted that Markle once wrote on her now-defunct lifestyle blog The Tig: “I was born and raised in Los Angeles, a California girl who lives by the ethos that most things can be cured with either yoga, the beach or a few avocados.”
