Closer Weekly: Meghan Markle & Prince Harry 'Baby-Proofed' Their LA Mansion before Moving In

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly left nothing to chance when they moved into their Los Angeles home last week. They made sure the place was "baby-proof" for little Archie.

As the coronavirus makes its way through several countries around the globe, Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry decided that Canada was no longer a good fit for them. 

The former senior royals packed up from Vancouver Island and settled into Markle's hometown in Los Angeles last week. According to one report, they were already planning to spend time there anyway.

Meghan & Harry leave Canada

Los Angeles is where Markle's mom Doria Ragland and several of Markle's friends reside. The former "Suits" actress joined them in LA just before Canada decided to close their borders

Of course, the US now has over a hundred thousand cases of COVID-19, so the family prepared not only for themselves but for their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, 10 months, to move in.

They "baby-proof" their home

One source told Closer Weekly, "[Harry and Meghan] are living in self-isolation in a $15 million gated mansion. They've made sure it's baby-proof — especially the pool because Archie just started walking."

Another source reported that Markle, 38, had not seen her 63-year-old mom as of Friday, March 27. Ragland, a yoga teacher and former social worker, was spotted walking her dogs while practicing social distancing.

Prince Charles diagnosed

Ragland's grandson has also been getting fresh air amid the pandemic. One source told Closer that Markle sometimes takes Archie outside, but "it's usually on the grounds of their own property."

Meanwhile, Prince Charles was diagnosed with COVID-19 last week and has since spoken to son Harry, reported People magazine. The two last appeared together at the Commonwealth Service on March 9.

Meghan & Harry name changes

Harry and his wife will make their step down from being senior royals official onMarch 31. According to Mirror, the pair will likely change their names after that. 

To be sure, they will have to drop their Sussex titles. In addition, one source alleges that their surnames may also change. Harry may revert to the use of Wales, which he employed while in school and the military. 

Markle might keep her maiden name for now. Or, the pair may adopt the name Mountbatten-Windsor, the designated surname for royal family members who possess no title.

Archie's birthday coming up

Baby Archie is the most prominent royal currently using the official surname, which is a combination of the Queen and Prince Philip's maiden names. 

The tot is now approaching his first birthday, which, according to Us Weekly, will be celebrated at the Balmoral estate in Scotland. There'll also be another bash in Canada, which will see Markle's family and friends.
