Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially moved back to the Duchess of Sussex’s hometown of Los Angeles, People magazine reported on Thursday.
Citing an anonymous source, the outlet said Sussexes lives in a “secluded compound and didn’t venture out among the coronavirus pandemic.”
The couple and their son, Archie, lived on Vancouver Island after their announcement in January that they were retiring from their royal duties, a change that officially begins March 31
In February, People was the first to report to Sussexes looked in Los Angeles, while reality star Caitlyn Jenner lets it slip that the royals were seen shopping around houses in Malibu. Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, still lives in LA.
HuffPost spoke to Lainey Lui, a Canadian TV host and co-founder of LaineyGossip.com, in February regarding reports that Harry and Meghan moved to LA.
She explained why the city could be the perfect place for the couple because they really stood out on Vancouver Island, where it was not “common to see celebrities walking around.”
“When they ended up there and the world found out, they became hot spots,” she told HuffPost at the time. “You stand out. And so, the paparazzi knew exactly where they lived on Vancouver Island. They knew there were hiking trails nearby. So there weren’t many places for them to hide. “
“But in LA, where celebrities have perfected the art of disappearing when they need and reappearing when they need to, and the entire city is so set up to meet celebrity needs, they may have an easier time going underground,” Lui added.
Disney confirmed the Duchess’s first post-royal gig on Thursday: tells of a new documentary, “Elephant,” which follows an elephant family’s journey of 1,000 miles across Africa. The program will be available for streaming on Disney Plus on April 3.
The UK Times was the first to report in January that the Duchess made a voiceover deal with Disney in exchange for a donation to Elephants Without Borders.
