Harry has found a bestie in LA neighbor Adele, insider says pop sensation was 'always after him'
Adele lives just a couple of minutes away from the Sussexes' new residence in Beverly Hills and often stops by to say hello
Prince Harry and Meghan have become besties with fellow Brit Adele as they adjust to their new life in Los Angeles.
The 32-year-old pop sensation lives just a couple of minutes away from the Sussexes' new residence in Beverly Hills. According to the Daily Mirror, she often stops by to say hello and gives Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, advice about life in LA.
“Adele’s just five minutes from Harry and Meghan and they’ve swapped notes on the area. Adele loves the neighborhood. She’s also recommended her four-year-old son Angelo’s pre-school and discreet places to take Archie where they won’t be bombarded by fans,” a source told the Mirror.
“All three of them get on so well. Meghan admires how Adele has managed to keep out of the spotlight despite being a huge star. And she is a big fan of her album 21, which she says helped her through her divorce from Trevor Engelson," the insider added.
According to the source, the new friendship blossomed after reports of Harry struggling to get used to life in LA and missing his friends back home.
Adele admitted to Glamour magazine back in 2011 that she was "after Prince Harry."
“I know I said I wouldn’t go out with a ginger, but it’s Prince Harry. I’d be a real duchess then! I’d love a night out with him. He seems like a right laugh,” she told Glamour.
The 'Someone Like You' hitmaker first became pals with the couple in December 2018, when they visited a community kitchen for Grenfell Tower victims.
The transition from living in a palace in England to settling down with his wife and son in a mansion in California has not been a smooth one for Harry as he reportedly feels "rudderless" and is "missing having a structure to his life."
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been living in an $18 million mansion in Los Angeles since March, after flying into the US from Canada before the latter country closed down due to the coronavirus pandemic. A source told Vanity Fair that while the former prince has been keeping "very busy keeping in touch with friends and colleagues" in the UK via video calls, he feels lost at this point in his life because he does not have a job.
Although he did not particularly have a "job" back at home, his life did revolve around the royal engagements that were scheduled for him on a daily basis and he got to represent the Queen in public. After deciding to step down as a senior member of the royal family, he not only lost that "job," he was also stripped of his military appointments. He had to give up his roles as Captain-General of the Royal Marines and Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington.
As a result, Harry now yearns for the friends he had in the military community in the UK.
"This is a very strange time for us all, but I think Harry is missing having a structure to his life right now. He doesn’t have friends in LA like Meghan and he doesn’t have a job," the insider added.
The fact that he is successfully working toward "keeping up regular communication" with the organizations and patronages he has worked with in the past has not helped with his mental state as well as he would have liked but the father-of-one knows that the state that he is in right now will not continue forever. "At the moment he’s a bit rudderless, but it won’t always be like this, and he knows that," the source said.
