Harry and Meghan living in Tyler Perry's luxurious $18-million Beverly Hills mansion arranged by pal Oprah
Perry's mansion boasts of eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and is located on 22 acres on top of a hill in the exclusive Beverly Ridge Estates guard-gated community
Prince Harry and Meghan have been living in Los Angeles, California after moving to the US last minute before the borders were shut amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The couple has reportedly been staying at an ultra-luxury Beverly Hills mansion that belongs to Tyler Perry. While the pair have never been seen with Perry, it is believed that they all met thanks to their mutual close friend, Oprah Winfrey, Daily Mail reports.
The couple has been calling the mansion estimated at $18 million home ever since they moved to LA. Perry's mansion boasts of eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and is located on 22 acres on top of a hill in the exclusive Beverly Ridge Estates guard-gated community.

It is currently unknown whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are renting the property or are staying there as guests. However, there has been no official record showing that the mansion has been sold.
The couple and Perry both consider Oprah to be their Hollywood mentor. Oprah is the godmother of Perry's son, Aman, and was seen at the house Harry and Meghan are staying at in 2015 for Aman's christening party.
Harry and Meghan are currently working on a documentary series with Oprah while Tyler Perry has been partnered with Oprah's OWN TV channel. A source revealed, "Meghan and Harry have been extremely cautious to keep their base in LA under wraps."
"Their team helped them choose the location for their transition to Los Angeles wisely. Beverly Ridge has its own guarded gate and Tyler's property has a gate of its own which is watched by their security team. Beverly Ridge is an excellent place to keep out of view. The neighbors are mostly old money and mega-rich business types rather than show business gossips."
"It goes without saying that the location is stunning - just one of the most beautiful and desirable areas in LA," the insider continued.
The Beverly Ridge Estates are close to the Van Nuys private airport and also to some of the best private schools on the Westside of LA. Many celebrities have owned homes in the community, such as ex-spouses David and Carlton Gebbia who were seen on the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.'
Top Hollywood real estate agent Rochelle Maize of the Nourmand & Associates agency said, "Beverly Ridge Estates has just 14 homes but is very prestigious and chic. There are not many rentals on offer there because of the limited number of properties."
"Leases start at around $20,000 and can go up to $40,000 a month. It costs around $16 million to buy a property there," Maize added.
We had previously reported that Harry and Meghan's son, Archie, celebrated his 1st birthday on May 6. His proud parents have shared a very special video of him with his mother. The video was shared on the Save the Children's Instagram account to mark the little one’s first birthday.
In the video which was reportedly shot by Harry, Archie can be seen sitting on Meghan’s lap as she read him a children's book named ‘Duck! Rabbit!’
