Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have fled coronavirus in Canada to set up a permanent home in California, taking a private jet to Los Angeles, a source confirmed to Page Six.
The couple, with their 10-month-old baby Archie, took a secret flight to the L.A. area, leaving their recent bolthole on Vancouver Island after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the country’s borders were closing last week.
Harry and Meghan are setting up home near Hollywood — after looking at homes in the Beverly Hills area — the UK Sun newspaper first reported.
“This move was planned for some time. They realized Canada would not work out for various reasons and they want to be based in the Los Angeles area.
“They have a big support network there. It’s where their new team of Hollywood agents and PRs and business managers are based. Meghan has lots of friends there and, of course, her mum Doria,” the paper said.
Page Six had earlier reported that the former senior royal couple was eyeing a future in the Los Angeles area, where Meghan grew up and where her mom Doria Ragland lives. Meghan’s attorneys and talent managers are there, as well as executives for their new foundation.
They also have an array of powerful friends living nearby, including Oprah Winfrey, and Harry’s close pal, late-night TV host James Corden.
The revelations come after Disney pushed forward with the release of a documentary to help Elephants Without Borders, for which Meghan provided the voiceover.
According to The Sun’s report, the move — dubbed Megxit 2 — has “stunned and horrified members of the Royal Family,” who had hoped Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, would eventually return to Britain.
A growing health crisis has seen Prince Charles, 71, test positive for Covid-19 and The Queen, 93, and ailing Prince Philip, 98, put into self-isolation.
