People: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Eyeing California for Their New Post-Royal Life

According to “People” magazine, Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are keen on spending more time in California. The state happens to be Meghan’s hometown.

On March 31, 2020, Meghan and Harry will no longer be senior royal members as they’ve chosen to step down from their roles. The pair has since been living in Canada after their January 2020 announcement.

According to “People” magazine, the pair, and their son Archie, 10-months-old, are planning on spending time in Los Angeles for the summer. A royal insider explained: “This is what Meghan and Harry have always wanted — to create their own life.”

Harry & Meghan leave the Royal Family

The source added: “It’s got to feel like an immense relief to get out of the U.K. and go down their own path.” In her hometown, the Duchess has her mother, Doria Ragland, as a support system.

The publication also revealed that several of Meghan’s friends had been gone to Vancouver Island to visit the couple and their child. The family of three has been staying there since their announcement.

Couple could live in Canada and LA

Someone who’s close to the couple said: “They love being in Canada, but they are looking at houses in L.A. too.” The informant shared that it was possible that the pair could acquire homes in Canada and Los Angeles.

Tonight in London, for their third consecutive year, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Endeavour Fund Awards, which celebrates the achievements of those veterans injured in service who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year. By choosing to take on what seems impossible, these men and women not only set goals for themselves but have also inspired millions of people around the world. These annual awards bring together The Duke and The Duchess alongside wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and veterans as well as their families, friends and supporters of the military community. The Duke, who founded the @EndeavourFund, spoke on the night: • “The Endeavour Fund came from seeing the gaping hole that can be left after taking off that uniform. The power that sport and adventurous challenge plays in recovery, yes; but most of all - the chance to be part of a team again while attempting to achieve unthinkable challenges - as if being shot or blown up wasn’t enough, you guys continue to impress, inspire and challenge what it means to have a life changing injury.” • Since its launch in 2012, the Endeavour Fund has supported 108 projects that have directly assisted over 6,000 of those injured in service. Congratulations to all those who participated in endeavours over the last year and inspired others to push the boundaries of what’s possible! #EndeavorFundAwards

Losing their HRH titles

According to another source: “A weight has been lifted off their shoulders” since they announced their departure from the British Royal Family. After many discussions with the Queen, it was decided that the couple would no longer use their HRH (His/Her Royal Highness) titles.

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.
