Meghan and Harry were secretly whisked into US in Tyler Perry's $150m private jet and shifted to his LA mansion
The couple is reportedly staying at an ultra-luxury Beverly Hills mansion that belongs to Perry
The reason Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were able to avoid the paparazzi while moving from Canada to the United States in March was because Hollywood tycoon Tyler Perry sent his massive $150 million private jet to bring the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Los Angeles, where they are currently settled with their one-year-old son, Archie.
"It was a well-planned operation that appears to have worked perfectly," one insider said, adding that the top-secret mission was executed because Harry and Meghan wanted to avoid any wait at customs once they arrived in California after they left their temporary home in Canada, Daily Mail reported.
The couple has reportedly been staying at an ultra-luxury Beverly Hills mansion that belongs to 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. 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 couple is 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."
According to another report by the publication, the 90210 postcode in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, where Harry and Meghan are currently put up, is known for its star-studded neighbors, including longterm friends of the former 'Suits' actress Benita Litt, Heather Dorak and Abigail Spencer. Another close friend of Meghan's, Serena Williams, also lives in a neighboring gated community with her family.
Meghan reportedly told the friends in her inner circle that she was delighted to be back in her hometown where her friends and her mother, Doria Ragland, reside. However, her friends have expressed their concern over the fact that Harry might become very dependent on Meghan since he has few contacts or friends in LA.
