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.
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.
Confirmed by @people magazine, Harry and Meghan have moved to LA. It’s not a surprise - myself (and others) have written this would happen as far back as January. But it is a firm marker regarding their future - and does make a mockery of the promotion of the Commonwealth ties. https://t.co/2HVaXpRgVo— Rebecca English (@RE_DailyMail) March 26, 2020
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."
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.
The duchess is said to be preparing animal cupcakes for her son, who was born on May 6 last year. She might also give him a copy of "The Giving Tree," written by Shel Silverstein.
