Harry and Meghan move to LA in private jet amid coronavirus lockdown to stay close to Hollywood agents and PRs
Meghan Markle has a large support system in LA which includes her mother and friends and the couple reportedly made the move to further their careers
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have left Canada and have settled in Los Angeles, USA. The couple left their Vancouver Island mansion to move Meghan's hometown in LA, a source has revealed. They have been staying in a secluded compound and have not been venturing out amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Harry and Meghan had been living in Canada with their 10-month-old son Archie ever since they announced their decision to step down as senior members of the royal family. However, they had been making plans for their USA move, a source told PEOPLE.
It has been reported that Harry and Meghan flew to LA by a private jet before POTUS Donald Trump shut the borders to the USA. According to The Sun, a source shared, "Harry and Meghan have left Canada now for good. The borders were closing and flights were stopping. They had to get out."
Meghan, 38, has a large support system in LA which includes her mother, Doria Ragland, who is a social worker and a yoga instructor. Meghan has many friends too, some of whom had reportedly visited her while she was staying at Vancouver Island.
A friend in their circle had previously shared that the couple was on the lookout for homes and had been "looking at houses in LA". Another source had revealed, "Harry is looking straight ahead at his future with his family... They will be spending time in California... He's not looking back," the insider added.
It is also believed that Harry and Meghan moved to LA as they want to be close to "their new team of Hollywood agents and PRs", according to The Sun. MEA WorldWide had previously reported that Meghan, has her first post-royal life job: narrating a Disney documentary about elephants.
Disney announced on March 26 that the duchess is lending her voice to 'Elephant', to be released April 3 on the Disney+ streaming service. It’s an animal and nature-themed series released to mark Earth Month.
A source also told The Sun that the couple's latest move has "stunned and horrified" others in the royal family after Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus. Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and her husband Prince Philip are also currently in isolation, amid the coronavirus outbreak.
On March 25, it was revealed that Harry's father Prince Charles, 71, tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The palace confirmed that Prince Charles spoke to his sons Prince William and Prince Harry about it too. Charles had last seen his sons on March 9 when the royal family attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey.
The event was Harry and Meghan's final official royal event in the UK as they prepared to officially step down as senior members of the royal family on March 31.
As reported by Daily Mail, a source also revealed that Meghan has forbidden Harry from traveling to the UK to visit his sick father. Meghan had shared with her friends that her husband felt 'helpless' and was 'concerned' about the Queen and his father Prince Charles.
"Meghan told her inner circle of friends that Harry has been communicating with Prince William and the Queen on a pretty consistent basis. She said this world crisis has actually brought them all closer together, especially Harry and his brother," the insider shared.
"Harry has made it very clear to them that he will do whatever he can to help from Canada. Meghan said they are grateful, especially Harry, that they could spend time with his family before all this insanity began," the insider added.
