KEY POINTS

  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are occupying an 8-bedroom home in Los Angeles
  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left to Canada and moved to the U.S.
  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle need President Donald Trump's approval to enjoy the diplomatic protection in the U.S.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are staying in a luxurious eight-bedroom home in Los Angeles.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced in January that they were stepping back as senior members of the royal family. They moved to Canada after their bombshell announcement.

Many thought that they were staying in Vancouver for good. However, an insider said that they were looking for a home in California.

Just recently, another source confirmed that Prince Harry and Markle are already in Los Angeles. They reportedly flew there before Canada closed its borders. The royal couple is reportedly staying in a lavish home.

New Idea shared snaps of Prince Harry and Markle’s new home which boasts eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. There is also a big swimming pool and a tennis court within the property.

The publication noted that the lavish home would cost Prince Harry and Markle $15, 950 a night. They were reportedly planning to have a taste of life in Malibu before they commit to a permanency.

Meanwhile, according to veteran royal photographer Arthur Edwards, Prince Harry and Markle moved away from the U.K. and Canada and decided to settle in Los Angeles for a heartbreaking reason. They reportedly have a big support network there because Markle’s friends live in the area. The duchess’ mom Doria Ragland is also there.

“They tried palace life in Britain but it didn’t work out. So they have switched from Harry’s home town to Meghan’s,”  he explained. “In a way it’s exchanging one goldfish bowl for another but it’s a city where Meghan has deep personal and professional connections. In LA they’ll be close to Meghan’s mum Doria - her only family member at her wedding to Harry - who will love having Archie so close.”

Meanwhile, now that Prince Harry and Markle are in the U.S., they have to ask for President Donald Trump’s approval for them to enjoy the diplomatic protection. The POTUS provides this to royal family when they visit U.S.A. However, the Sussexes are no longer working royals, so the decision depends on Trump’s discretion.
