Welcome home, Meghan Markle, and welcome to the United States, Prince Harry and baby Archie.
People reports that the Sussexes moved to the hometown of Markle, Los Angeles, after spending a long time on Vancouver Island, Canada. (The two moved there shortly after announcing in January that they would retire as senior members of the royal family.) They would be hidden in an “isolated compound” amid concerns over coronaviruses, though that their representatives did not officially comment on the great movement.
The rumor has been running since the announcement of the retreat that the couple would spend at least part of their time in Los Angeles, which also houses Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland. “Harry is looking straight into his future with his family,” said a source. People. “They’re going to be spending time in California … He’s not looking back.” (The couple still keep their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor, where they recently stayed while finishing their last royal engagements in London.)
L.A. makes sense for the couple for many reasons. Markle is from there, for his part, and that’s where his mother, with whom she shares a very close relationship, lives.
It is also the home of Hollywood, the former (and perhaps future) industry of the Duchess. As recently as yesterday (March 26), her very first post-royal project – a voiceover for the Disney movie, the elephant– has been announced. If she is looking to go back to her roots as an actress, L.A. is obviously the ideal place. Then of course there is the generally sunny weather, the beaches and the hikes (we know they love the outdoors, and Archie too!), And the fact that they may not even be people the most famous in the city.
Meghan Markle would have felt “trapped and claustrophobic” living in London. Since the couple’s decision to conclude their royal functions, a source said We weekly, “Meghan still has a real spring in her step. She feels like a new person.”
