Meghan Markle and Prince Harry looking to buy holiday home in Malibu where celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Kim Kardashian live
Meghan's LA friends are scoping out a stretch in Malibu that is home to a number of A-List celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Aniston
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly looking for a house in the celebrity enclave of Malibu, California, because the Los-Angeles-born Duchess of Sussex is "homesick."
The stretch that Meghan's LA friends are scoping out in Malibu for a potential future home for the royal family-of-three is 30 miles west of Downtown Los Angeles and is home to a number of A-List celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Aniston.
However, due to the high demand from prominent celebrities looking to buy a house in the area, three-bedroom homes in the California coastline can cost anywhere up to $7million, Daily Mail reported.
Edmund Fry, 79, a cafe owner in Los Angeles, who first met the Duchess when he taught her royal etiquette at his English tea room, said: "Meghan and Harry are looking for a place out here. I have heard that they are interested in Malibu. Knowing Meghan and talking to her, she misses home. Meghan is a Los Angeles girl, born and raised here with many links to Hollywood and friends here."
"It is possible to live stress-free and out of the glare of publicity here. LA and California are so huge, it is easy to escape to places with your family and just blend in with everyone," he added.
The latest update comes on the heel of a Daily Mail report on Saturday claiming Harry and Meghan had snubbed Prince Charles's plans to take on an estate in Herefordshire, which would have helped the Prince of Wales create an estate near the Welsh Borders.
However, Prince Charles' second son has shown little interest in setting up a country estate for his family in the property which was earmarked for him for decades. This fuelled rumors that he might be planning to move abroad with his American wife.
"In the 1980s, it was decided baby Harry would one day have a family and want to build an estate," a royal insider told the outlet. "Charles has discussed Herefordshire, thinking he’d love it. Perhaps back then they were expecting Harry would marry a Sloaney nursery teacher who would love nothing more than running an estate. Fast forward to 2019, and that dream seems deeply old-fashioned, not to mention unrealistic."
