Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Used Tyler Perry’s Private Jet to Secretly Move to LA
After exiting the British royal family in early March 2020, many people expected that Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry would be laying low for some time. After all, the pair had spent the end of 2019 hiding out on Vancouver Island in Canada with their son, Archie Harrison.
Therefore, amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, royal fans were stunned to learn that the Sussexes had fled Canada for the duchess’ hometown of Los Angeles, California. This was especially confusing considering the former senior royals plea for a more peaceful and low-key life.
However, it turns out the Sussexes plan to move to LA was in place for quite some time. It was simply sped up due to the pandemic. In fact, they had a trusted friend by their side that helped them slip into the United States undetected.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s move to LA shocked everyone
The Sussexes hope to launch their new Archewell brand, which apparently did not make sense to do while they were living in Canada. The pair also have a powerhouse Hollywood team at their disposal as they continue to sign on to projects that will help them become financially independent of the British royal family.
Still, the royals livinh in LA still isn’t sitting well with some people. “They actually moved to California…I don’t know why, it’s just so alien to me to think of the prince living here,” Sharon Osbourne shared on The Talk. “If they were fed up with the press in the UK, they are really going to be fed up with the press living in LA. I just think it’s so foreign. I’m kind of disappointed, in a way, that Harry would end up here in LA. I hope they are going to move somewhere like Santa Barbara or something like that so that they can have somewhat of a normal existence. But if they are going to live in LA, right in the center, it’s going to be a nightmare for them with the press and the paparazzi. They would have no life at all.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been staying at Tyler Perry’s Beverly Hills mansion
For now, the Sussexes have remained pretty low-key except when they’ve been spotted out and about volunteering. Daily Mail is reporting that the pair ave been living in media mogul Tyler Perry’s $18 million, Beverly Hills mansion. The couple and Perry were presumably connected through their mutual friend, Oprah Winfrey.
The home sits on a hill within the Beverly Ridge Estates guard-gated community and boasts eight bedrooms and 12-bathrooms. “Meghan and Harry have been extremely cautious to keep their base in LA under wraps,” an insider told Daily Mail. “Their team helped them choose the location for their transition to Los Angeles wisely. Beverly Ridge has its own guarded gate and Tyler’s property has a gate of its own which is watched by their security team. Beverly Ridge is an excellent place to keep out of view. The neighbors are mostly old money and mega-rich business types rather than show business gossips. It goes without saying that the location is stunning – just one of the most beautiful and desirable areas in LA.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle used Tyler Perry’s jet to secretly move to LA
Not only is the Tyler Perry Studios mogul lending his home to the couple, but he also helped them get into the States undetected. According to Daily Mail, the couple borrowed Perry’s private jet to move from Canada to LA. “It was a well-planned operation that appears to have worked perfectly,” a source explained.
In order to remain incognito, Perry’s $150 million jet left its Atlanta base at 1:35am on Saturday, March 14 on its way to pick up Harry, Meghan and one-year-old baby Archie. The Sussexes left Canada in the early morning before flying to a corporate airport in Portland, Oregon where they could go through customs and immigration undetected. From Portland, the pair flew to LAX where they could be in and out of the high profile airport quickly. “They have a big support network [in Los Angeles],” a source explained to The Sun. “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.”
