Prince Harry and Meghan Markle only have a few days left as senior members of the British royal family, and they’ll reportedly be spending post-royal life in sunny California instead of Canada.
According to People, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have left their home in Vancouver Island and settled in Meghan’s hometown of Los Angeles. People reports they haven’t ventured out of their new home amid COVID-19 restrictions.
Meghan and Harry have been living in Canada with their 10-month-old son Archie since shortly after they announced their exit from the Crown in January. Early reports stated that the couple would be splitting their time between the U.S. and Canada. Of course, Suits fans will remember that before Harry and Meghan were married, she lived in Toronto while filming the show.
As of March 31, Harry and Meghan will officially no longer be senior members of the royal family. Before COVID-19 brought public gatherings to a halt, they attended a few final events, including the Endeavour Awards in early March.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Harry’s father, Prince Charles, tested positive for COVID-19. Harry and Meghan posted a photo with coronavirus guidelines to their official Sussex Royal Instagram account, expressing gratitude to healthcare workers and encouraging the public to comply with social distancing rules.
“For all of us, the best way we can support health workers is to make sure we do not make their job any harder by spreading this disease further,” the post reads.
