Royal Expats In LA

It's being reported that Prince Harry, now living in Los Angeles with his wife, Meghan Markle, and their son, Archie, 1, is having a tough time adjusting to his new life away from his family in England.

The family relocated to America from Vancouver Island earlier this year, though Fox News isn't sure exactly when they moved from Canada to Los Angeles, Markle's home base.

Plenty Of Room To Roam

The Duke and Duchess officially left their royal posts as senior members in March, and the three are now living in a 22-acre, $18 million hilltop home owned by Tyler Perry.

Page Six says the Tuscan-style mansion, in the gated Beverly Ridge Estates, has eight-bedrooms and 12 bathrooms -- all fit for a king.

The site adds that Perry is out of town and hoping to restart his production company in Atlanta, so it sounds like they're guests of his. They apparently became acquainted with Perry through mutual friend Oprah Winfrey.

Life Comes At You Fast

Tyler Perry's mansion sounds pretty swank, but this is also in the middle of a pandemic, so it's not like the family can host any elaborate parties in the huge house.

And members of Harry's family can't come by and social distance in the house, since most flights are not taking place. So that could have something to do with Harry's loneliness.

Harry's Home Alone, Sort Of

Regardless, they're bunking down there while they wait to buy their own home, somewhere in the $10 million to $20 million range. “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles” agent Josh Altman says now is actually a good time for the family to find a new place.

“The market, in general, is great for buyers; you’ll get a great deal over the next six months. If you’re looking to spend $10 to $20 million, there are five or six gated communities that are perfect,” Altman says.

Structureless, 'Rudderless'

But it's not just loneliness that's nagging at Harry. A source told Vanity Fair that Harry also feels like he's missing "structure" in his life.

It doesn't help that he doesn't have a job right now, and that Meghan surely knows a lot more people in LA than he does.

"He has a lot of friends in the military community in the UK and of course he misses them. This is a very strange time for us all, but I think Harry is missing having a structure to his life right now."

The source adds: "So at the moment he's a bit rudderless," though he knows that the situation "won't always be like this."

So perhaps he'll get back on track when this whole situation eventually clears up. But until then, it seems like he has a lot of time to do some thinking about his life.
