Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are allegedly settling down in Malibu to put down roots and make their forever home. The couple has officially been on their own since March, 31st and intends to find a place to raise their young family in the California sun. There are several possible reasons as to why they may have chosen Malibu as their ideal home. It’s likely a combination of several factors as it is for any family making such a big decision.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been making headlines for months since they made the shocking announcement that hey would be stepping down as senior working members of the royal family. Their fans and followers were even more stunned when the couple announced that they planned to split their time between the United Kingdom and North America. They spent several months in Canada but at the onset of the coronavirus outbreak decided to head to California to be closer to their dream destination.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left the royal family in order to live a more private life with their son Archie. They knew they would most likely have to leave the UK to avoid the British press if they wanted to truly get away from it all. The couple is allegedly eyeing a mansion in Malibu as their new home. Many wonder why they didn’t settle in the Hollywood hills but Malibu is removed enough from that lifestyle to offer privacy.
Meghan and Harry have plenty of reasons to live near Los Angeles. Meghan’s acting career means she has many contacts in the area both professionally and personally. Among the most important is probably her mother. Now that the couple has baby Archie, being near family is more important than ever. It’s rumored that Meghan was also gravely concerned about her mother after the coronavirus outbreak first began and wanted to be closer to her in these stressful and uncertain times.
Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, was also allegedly fond of the Malibu area. Shortly before her tragic and untimely death, Diana’s boyfriend Dodi was purchasing a home in Malibu. He intended to live there with Diana. Sources say Harry and Meghan are looking to buy a home very near to where Diana planned to move. The pair would be living close to both of Archie’s grandmothers if Diana had not been tragically lost far too young in that fateful car accident.
Meghan and Harry have made it clear that they wish to become financially independent of the crown. In order to do this, they’ll both be working on their careers moving forward. In 12 months’ time, the royal family will review the details of their split and arrangements at which time things may change for the Sussexes. They may just be able to regain the use of some of their titles and possibly revive the now defunct Sussex Royal charitable foundation.
