EXCLUSIVE: PRINCE HARRY IS CALIFORNIA DREAMINGMay 12, 2017
By Brodie Cooper
He is about to be granted a greater role in his British Royal duties with the imminent retirement of his grandfather Prince Phillip, but Dish Nation has learned Prince Harry has one eye on the West Coast to get away from those ceremonial duties.
Royal insiders say Harry is mad keen on establishing a “bolt-hole” in Los Angeles as things progress further with his actress girlfriend Meghan Markle.
Meghan being a part-time resident of the California city has peaked his interest further; with the notion of them getting a pad together to escape.
His late mother Princess Diana had also been a huge fan of California. Just weeks before her death, the Royal icon planned to set up home with film producer and then boyfriend Dodi Fayed in Malibu.
Harry is a huge fan of America, even having served time during his Army days on secondment in a US military bases in California and Arizona.
A friend of Meghan’s claimed that Harry will push forward with plans for a home – most likely in Malibu – once they get engaged. Insiders say that he may pop the question to the Suits actress as soon as the run up to Christmas.
The source revealed:
“Harry loves California and has had many good nights out in Los Angeles. With Meghan growing up in the city, it has helped him get an even greater excitement for the place. He knows that come the end of the year his Royal duty list will accelerate greatly meaning that he will be working as a representative for the Queen on a daily basis. While he is happy with that role, Harry and Meghan still want to maintain as a much of an adventurous travel filled life. With her links to California, and his love for the state, it seems like a natural place for them to have an escape. These are plans set to materialize once the pair take things to the next level officially by getting engaged. And if her friends are to be believed, Harry may end up getting down on one knee before the end of the year. Once their relationship becomes official, then they can start building their lives moving forward. Meghan has always said she loves her life in LA, living close to the water and with the Royal family’s income a home in a private Malibu community is affordable.”
Harry and Meghan have been dating for a year. The pair jet to each other’s sides when they have breaks in their commitments. Both share a passion for traveling and conducting charity work.
Prince Harry is expected to be invited to replace his grandfather Prince Philip as head of Britain’s elite Royal Marines.
The 32-year-old royal is now likely to take on the ceremonial position once the Duke of Edinburgh stands down from public duties in the fall.
