Harry and Meghan ‘move to California’

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have left Canada to set up a new permanent base in California, according to reports.

The couple left their rented home in Vancouver and took a private flight to the US before the border between the two countries closed last week, the Sun reported.

Harry, Meghan and baby Archie are now said to be living in lockdown close to Hollywood in accordance with the sunshine state's Covid-19 containment measures.

A source told the Sun: "Harry and Meghan have left Canada now for good.

"The borders were closing and the flights were stopping. They had to get out."

The source added: "But this move was planned for some time. They realised Canada would not work out for various reasons and they want to be based in the Los Angeles area.

"They have a big support network there. It's where their new team of Hollywood agents and PRs and business managers are based.

"Meghan has lots of friends there and, of course, her mum Doria."

The couple do not officially step down as senior royals until the end of this month.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment.

News of the alleged move comes just hours after it was revealed that Meghan has – or at least her voice – returned to the small screen as narrator of a new Disney film about a family of elephants.

It will be available to stream on Disney+ from April 3.

To celebrate its release, Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund will support wildlife charity Elephants Without Borders, which works with both elephants and communities in Botswana.

It emerged earlier this week that Prince Charles has coronavirus.

Charles is now self-isolating at his Scottish home Birkhall, in Aberdeenshire, while his wife the Duchess of Cornwall is living separately from her husband in the property after she tested negative for Covid-19.

The Queen, 93, is staying at Windsor Castle with the Duke of Edinburgh, 98, and the pair are in good health, Buckingham Palace said on Wednesday.
