Meghan Markle ‘Feels Like Herself’ in LA, Says Royal Source

Just about everyone can agree that there is no place like home, and that holds true even for Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Over the past few years, her career as an actress as well as her role as the Duchess of Sussex have taken her to some of the most exotic places in the entire world, and fans couldn’t help but be a bit envious.

After landing her breakout role as Rachel Zane in the legal drama Suits, Meghan lived for a few years in Toronto, Canada, where the show was filmed. It was after she met Prince Harry, who lived in London, that she realized just how difficult it was to carry on a long-distance relationship.

As the couple grew more serious, Meghan moved to England to live at Kensington Palace. After getting married, however, they surprised everyone and moved to Windsor. Meghan and Prince Harry have been on the move for quite a few years, and now, a royal source says that she “feels like herself” in Los Angeles, where they have recently settled.

The royal exit that shocked the world

It is easy to assume that royal life would appeal to anyone, but for Meghan, it was anything but that. As soon as she and Prince Harry went public with their relationship, the relentless British tabloids began to harass Meghan to no end.

Things got so bad that Prince Harry felt compelled to release a statement in her defense, but that certainly did not stop the media from continuing to voice their opinion. Add in the fact that Meghan was dealing with extensive family drama when she and Prince Harry got married, and it seemed that the duchess just couldn’t catch a break.

She and Prince Harry moved to Windsor, much to everyone’s surprise, in hopes that they would be out of the spotlight. It didn’t get any better, and finally, according to Insider, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they would be resigning from their roles as senior working royals.

After extensively renovating Frogmore Cottage, their home in Windsor, England, it is safe to say that Meghan and Prince Harry still weren’t happy. According to The New Daily, she was finding royal life to be pretty overwhelming.

Although she received her fair share of attention when she was an American actress, it was nothing compared to what life as the wife of Prince Harry brought. Meghan and Prince Harry wanted nothing more than to live a private life with each other and their young son, Archie, and after splitting from the royal family, they spent quite a bit of time in Canada.

It even got to the point where more than a few fans thought that the couple would choose to stay there permanently. However, it wasn’t too long ago that they surprised everyone and decided to move to Los Angeles, Meghan’s former home, and a far cry from London.

A royal source says that Meghan ‘feels like herself’ now

Although we haven’t seen many pictures of Prince Harry and Meghan out and about in Los Angeles, according to US Weekly, the duchess is “starting to feel like herself again.”She is back in familiar surroundings, and close to her mother, Doria Ragland.

“They’ve been looking forward to [moving], and they’re very content and happy to finally be all settled in,” an insider said. “And of course, Meghan feels more at home too and she’s really starting to feel like herself again.”

Meghan and Prince Harry have been looking forward to this big move for quite some time now, and they are relieved to finally be exactly where they want to. Chances are, Meghan is happy to be away from the negativity that she has faced for the past several years and be back in the place where she grew up and loved as a child.

Recently, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were spotted in L.A, dressed casually and sporting face masks, delivering meals for Project Angel Food.
