Prince Harry Doesn’t Have Friends in LA, Report Reveals
When Prince Harry made the decision to pull the plug on his life within the British royal family, this is not at all what he foresaw happening. The Duke of Sussex and his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex wanted the opportunity to carve out a new life for themselves without having to adhere to royal traditions and protocols.
Though they had a plan in place to move to Meghan’s hometown of Los Angeles, California, and launch their new Archewell foundation, the coronavirus (COVID-19) drastically shifted their timeline. Now only did the Sussexes have to leave their rental property on Vancouver Island in Canda abruptly, they were also forced to stall any future projects.
While Meghan seems to be settling into a routine, Prince Harry is reportedly feeling a bit lost. It doesn’t help that he seemingly doesn’t have any friends in LA.
Prince Harry hates being so far from his family
With access to pretty much anything he could ever want, it would normally be no big deal for Prince Harry to catch a flight from LA to the U.K. Unfortunately, the coronavirus has halted all unnecessary travel, leaving the prince very isolated from his royal family.
“I very much think that Harry will be suffering from irrelevancy,” said royal expert Angela Mollard told Express. “He is separated from his family at a time when the rest of the world is using Zoom or WhatsApp to chat with each other. I can hardly see that happening, he must feel very separate.”
Prince Harry feels like his life has been turned upside down
While it looks like the Duke of Sussex is willing to give LA a fair chance, he certainly wasn’t expecting things to turn out the way that they have. “He has been telling friends he still can’t believe this has happened,” a source told Daily Mail. “He can’t believe his life has been turned upside down.”
Prince Harry doesn’t have any friends in LA
Unfortunately, aside from Meghan, the duke doesn’t have very many people he can depend on in LA. “Harry has a lot of friends in the military community in the UK and of course he misses them,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told Vanity Fair. This is a very strange time for us all, but I think Harry is missing having a structure to his life right now. He doesn’t have friends in L.A. like Meghan and he doesn’t have a job. So at the moment, he’s a bit rudderless, but it won’t always be like this, and he knows that.”
Thankfully, there is a bright spot in all of this. Prince Harry has been able to reconnect with his family despite the distance. “There have been clearly some quite major rifts in that relationship, but things have got better and I know that William and Harry are in touch on the phone,” Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight. “They have done video calls together, they have done a lot of family birthdays and I think with Prince Charles not being well, that really forced the brothers to pick up the phone and get back in touch.”
