Harry and Meghan Move to Los Angeles as Meghan Lands Disney Gig

Harry and Meghan have moved to Los Angeles as Meghan has landed a gig providing the voice-over for a Disney film about elephants.

The Sun reports Prince Harry and Meghan have fled Canada amid the coronavirus pandemic and have moved permanently to California.

They took a private flight to the Los Angeles area before the borders between Canada and the US were shut.

The Sussexes will set up a new home close to Hollywood, where we are told they are currently living in lockdown with their ten-month-old baby Archie.

Last night a royal insider said: “Harry and Meghan have left Canada now for good. The borders were closing and flights were stopping. They had to get out.

“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 bombshell move — dubbed Megxit 2 — has “stunned and horrified” members of the Royal Family.

They believed that Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, would consider returning to Britain to help their relatives.

A growing health crisis, has seen Prince Charles, 71, test positive for Covid-19 and The Queen, 93, and ailing Prince Philip, 98, put into self-isolation.

News of the shock move came as US entertainment giant Disney yesterday pushed ahead with the release of a charity film about elephants, for which Meghan provides the voiceover.

The deal is believed to have been done after Harry cornered the company’s boss Bob Iger at the premiere of The Lion King in London last year.

Disney sources said the release had been long planned to coincide with Earth Month, which begins next Wednesday and was not changed because of the coronavirus pandemic. The film will raise money for the charity Elephants Without Borders.

Our sources say the arrangement is another indication of where the couple see their priorities going forward.

The royal insider explained: “For Meghan, this type of work is going to be coming out of Hollywood going forward.

“She feels comfortable there around her people and has projects already planned like her children’s book.”

The Sussexes left the £10.7million mansion they were borrowing in Vancouver and took a flight out of the city shortly before US President Donald Trump and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau closed the border between their countries.

The couple landed in the LA area, which includes Bel Air — the posh neighbourhood of 1990s Will Smith sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
