Now that Harry and Meghan have relocated to Los Angeles, one source is claiming that the couple has always wanted to live a Hollywood lifestyle. Meghan, who was born and raised in Los Angeles, was also an actress before she married Harry and was swept up in the royal lifestyle.
In an interview with The Sun, one inside who claims to be a close friend of Markle’s said that the actress was always hoping that she would eventually go back there.
“I think she always wanted to be back here, she always dreamed of the full-blown Hollywood lifestyle and this kind of clout. And I don’t think it was even that hard to persuade Harry,” the source said.
While the source said that Meghan was the one who was dead set on coming back to Los Angeles, the source said that Harry was more than happy to comply. “He was smitten and star struck over the whole thing,” the source said. “I don’t think she had to twist his arm to move to Hollywood.”
The source also said that Meghan was incredibly comfortable now that she was back in L.A. “Now she is back home, near her mom, her friends and her PR team,” the source said. “She doesn’t have to ask for permission from the royal family in how she chooses to live her life and she can acquire income in all sorts of fields. ”
The source added that the result of Megxit was ideal for Meghan, as it gave her more freedom than she’d had as a royal.
Since they announced their departure from the royal family, Harry and Meghan had been living in Vancouver, Canada. Their move to Los Angeles happened just a few days ago, and they flew just before the border between the two countries was closed in response to the coronavirus.
Following the news of his father’s diagnosis of COVID-19, Harry was reportedly pretty torn up about the fact that he couldn’t be with his father as the heir to the throne battles the illness.
“Despite their ups and downs, hearing that his dad is sick with a potentially life-threatening illness is a huge wake-up call,” a source told Us Weekly. “And he’s overwhelmed with feelings of guilt for not being closer to home while this is all going on.”
Like the rest of the country, Harry and Meghan are doing their best to deal with the crisis. Thankfully, Meghan is in a place where she feels comfortable, even if it’s far from Harry’s family.
