Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Make Shocking Decision to Relocate from Canada to Los Angeles

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are on the move again! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are calling Los Angeles home now after leaving North Saanich on Vancouver Island shortly after Christmas.

While the couple had planned on relocating to the commonwealth of Canada permanently after announcing their plans to step away from their royal duties in January, they’ve now decided to move to Markle’s hometown with their 10-month-old son Archie.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved to LA days before the US border with Canada was closed.

This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

According to reporting from People, “They have been living in a secluded compound and haven’t ventured out amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

The move isn’t a complete shock to people who know the couple. Markle’s got a network of friends and family in Los Angeles that would all be helpful in caring for her Archie. Markle’s mother Doria Ragland lives in LA and works as a social worker and yoga instructor. We imagine she’s one of the Duchess’ main draws to the city.

Meghan Markle has many friends and family in Los Angeles.

Further, Markle’s many friends including Priyanka Chopra, the Clooneys and Janina Gavankar have homes and spend time in Los Angeles.

“Harry is looking straight ahead at his future with his family,” a source told People. “They will be spending time in California…He’s not looking back.”

The Duke and Duchess are not looking back and plan on raising their family privately.

The news of the move comes on the heels of the announcement of Disney’s Elephants which is narrated by Markle and will be released in early April. It’s unclear whether Markle will continue to do voiceover work for Disney, but the move to LA makes us think it’s a possibility.

The President tweeted about the reported move by the couple to Los Angeles.

The relocation didn’t seem too terribly controversial, but it did make news after President Trump took to Twitter to tweet about it. Even in the midst of managing a National Emergency and crisis response, the President found time to weigh in on the couple’s plans to move.

The president tweeted, “I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”

He’s referring to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police or RCMP protection the couple had gotten in Canada. Because Canada is a commonwealth of the British Empire, the Duke and Duchess received security protection from the Canadian authorities.

The Duke and Duchess released a statement explaining their security plans.

According to the president’s twitter account, the couple will not be afforded the same protections in the United States.

The couple released a statement that read, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no plans to ask the U.S. government for security resources. Privately funded security arrangements have been made.”

The couple’s royal duties end on March 31 and they’ll become private citizens on April 1.

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth – a family of 53 countries working together to promote democracy, protect human rights, regenerate the environment, and focus not on what makes us different – but rather what we have in ‘common.’ What unites us versus what divides us. Representing nearly one third of the world’s population, 60% of whom are under the age of 30, the Commonwealth also serves as a champion for youth empowerment, which is a key focus of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Her Majesty The Queen serves as patron of the @queens_commonwealth_trust, which Their Royal Highnesses proudly serve as President and Vice-President of. The Duke is also Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. Through The Duke and Duchess’ Commonwealth travels, they have worked with and supported young leaders on mobilizing youth engagement, and working towards a more unified future that spearheads progress, sustainability, optimism, and taking action. With that said, Mozambique, a member state of the Commonwealth, is currently enduring Cyclone Kenneth, the most destructive natural disaster the northern coast has ever experienced. On the heels of Cyclone Idai (where over 1000 people lost their lives) this cyclone will leave the people of Mozambique victim to catastrophic flooding, food insecurity, displacement, and obliteration of their homes and villages.
