Caitlyn Jenner Jokes She Heard Harry & Meghan Were Looking for a House in Malibu Amid Exit
Caitlyn Jenner showed her funny aide, joking about a Malibu house shopping rumor she heard about the "Megxit" couple, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
Caitlyn Jenner shared with the panel of "Loose Women," a story she heard about the famous "Megxit" couple, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry. She said,
"I heard they were looking for a house in Malibu."
The former "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star noted that Markle and Harry must have been unhappy if they packed up their lives and moved halfway across the world. She added,
"It must have been tough. Everyone deserves to be happy."
Jenner, however, failed to elaborate beyond that. When asked what she thinks is next for her California sister, and her husband, she responded that she has no idea.
What she did, was point out that it must have been tiring for Markle to transition into the Royal life after growing up in the United States. Transitioning is something the former reality star can relate with.
Markle and Harry have no problem not using the title while announcing themselves, but they still use it on their Sussex Royal website.
Jenner was Bruce Jenner before becoming Caitlyn. She told the women on the panel that she took part in the "I'm A Celebrity" jungle show to prove that she can still do things she enjoyed before her transition.
Markle and Prince Harry also have something to prove. The two stepped away from life as senior members of the Royal family to live as private citizens, early this month.
The parents-of-one will no longer work for Her Majesty, the Queen. They will also be financially independent of the Crown and will pursue private ventures to finance their lifestyle.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
Living life as non-Royals also means relinquishing their use of the HRH title. Markle and Prince Harry have no problem not using the title while announcing themselves, but they still use it on their Sussex Royal website.
The couple abdicating their Royal duties also means that there's a vacuum to fill. Other members of the family would have to step into the roles the Sussexes left behind.

This evening The Duke and Duchess of Sussex accompanied Her Majesty The Queen and members of @TheRoyalFamily to the annual @RoyalBritishLegion Festival of Remembrance. This special event, which has taken place every year since 1923 at the @RoyalAlbertHall, commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts. • This year’s Festival marked the 75th anniversary of a number of crucial battles of 1944, with a particular emphasis on the collaboration and friendship of the British, Commonwealth and Allied armies who fought them. A unique tribute was given to acknowledge those involved both past and present, culminating in a special parade of some of the last surviving veterans who fought and served in 1944. • Their Royal Highnesses, who last year attended their first Festival of Remembrance together, were honoured to once again pay tribute to all casualties of war and remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. #FestivalOfRemembrance #WeWillRememberThem Photo © PA / Royal British Legion
According to Royal biographer Robert Lacey, the onus falls on Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie to step up. He believes the Duke of York's daughters might take up some of the responsibilities their cousin and his wife left behind.
Lacey noted that the sisters have to be willing, though. The Royal family needs all hands on deck, as the next generation of Royals is still too young to start working for the Crown.
