The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been staying in Canada for the past couple of months after their shocking decision to leave the royal family. And they are continuing with the shocking decisions by making a last-minute decision to move to Los Angeles. According to a royal insider, this is due to the ongoing epidemic. Meghan wanted to be close to her mother Doria Ragland, 63, who lives alone in LA. This decision comes just a couple of days before Meghan and Prince Harry officially stop being royals on March 31.
The couple, along with their firstborn son, Archie, has been staying in Canada since November last year. The two of them went back to the UK to sort things out and attend their last official royal events during that time period.
According to reports, they took a private jet to the US with their ten-month-old son Archie, who hasn’t left Canada since November, and just in time, as non-essential travel between Canada and the USA was suspended last week.
The reason for this move is Meghan’s growing concern about the epidemic.
Royal correspondent Omid Scobie said that Meghan “wouldn’t want her mother to be alone in a crisis like this”.
He explained: “Meghan left straight after the Commonwealth Ceremony to be with Archie in Canada. Harry joined them a few days later.
“It would have been some time after that that they made their decision to move over to California.
“it doesn’t come as a huge surprise to me. We had sources tell us they were looking to move to California in the summer.
“I’ve heard from people working with them that the US will play a big role in their charitable endeavours moving forward.”
The two should have no issue building their future, as Meghan has already landed a role as a narrator for a brand new Disney documentary titled Elephant. It will be released on Disney+ next month.
He added: “More importantly it is where Doria lives, someone who lives alone in the middle of a pandemic.”
Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter said: “It is hard to be away from family and friends during a crisis but there is a lot of comfort in knowing your mum is just a twenty-minute drive away, rather than a flight away, to be near to them just in case.”
The global crisis is more serious than we thought, as Harry’s father Prince Charles, 71, has tested positive for the virus. Every royal is currently in self-isolation, especially the Queen, 93, and Prince Phillip, 98.
