Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are, reportedly, settled in California permanently. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew out from Vancouver, Canada to Los Angeles via a private jet before President Donald Trump ordered to close the borders amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Insiders told The Sun that Prince Harry and Meghan, along with their 10-month old son Archie, have left Canada "for good." This move, however, has been in their plans for some time as the Sussexes look for various work opportunities in Hollywood.
The source further said that Prince Harry and Meghan have a big support network in California. Their team is composed of Hollywood agents, PR people and business managers. Meghan, especially, have plenty of friends and family in her birth city, including her mother, Doria Ragland.
According to People, the Sussex Royals are in secluded Los Angeles compound and haven't gone out amid the COVID-19 scare. Reps of the royals, however, hesitated to comment about their move.
But Prince Harry and Meghan's move to California, however, apparently "stunned and horrified" the royal family. They thought that Prince Harry and Meghan would fly back to London to help out during the growing public health crisis.
The news comes as Prince Charles confirmed he has tested positive for COVID-19. On the other hand, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, who is ailing, are in self-isolation in Windsor Castle.
The last time Prince Harry and Meghan saw the royal family was during the Commonwealth Day service in Westminster Abbey on March 9. Earlier, Prince Harry and Meghan also went to various engagements to complete their duties for the Queen and the Crown before they step back into private life.
Before their big California move, Prince Harry and Meghan have been self-isolating when they returned to Canada from London on the second week of March. The Duke of Sussex, however, has been, reportedly, worried that one of his family members could catch the coronavirus.
According to Daily Mail, Meghan has been telling her close friends that Prince Harry was in constant communication with Prince William and Queen Elizabeth since the pandemic escalated. He was also able to talk to Prince Charles after his positive diagnosis. Meanwhile, the Sussexes were also taking precautionary measures against the virus, like wearing gloves and following a strict hygiene protocol for their staff.
It's unclear when Prince Harry and Meghan will be able to fly to London amid this uncertain crisis. Prince Harry, as well as the rest of the royal family, announced the cancellation of their royal engagements for the next few weeks as a safety and health precaution.
