Royal insider reveals explosive details about Prince Harry's new life

A royal insider has revealed Prince Harry may be struggling since relocating to California, with the royal apparently concerned about his safety and missing the "quiet" life.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved close to Los Angeles in 2020 after the Covid pandemic hit and borders between the US and Canada were slammed shut.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex relocated to California and settled in their home in Santa Barbara after quitting royal life to "work to become financially independent".

Harry and Meghan had spoken about their desire to "do something of meaning, to do something that matters", with the pair launching a wide-ranging non-profit organisation named Archewell.

However, an insider told New Idea Prince Harry may be struggling with the move to California, with the royal reportedly missing his quiet life in Canada.

“Harry still finds America and its ways quite foreign ... He worries about the social issues that are far more prevalent here, including gun violence. He spends most of his time trying to recreate his life back in London, including begging the few friends he has left in society circles to visit him," the source told the publication.

“Harry wishes he could just go for a pint at a pub with his mates, but that’s impossible in Santa Barbara, where he’d be immediately recognised.

"It’s a far cry from his locals in London where publicans were happy to provide him private spaces to linger over a beer. It’s the little things like that he misses, as well as key things like safety.”

The source told New Idea Prince Harry "finds himself missing the quiet life in Canada very often".

It comes after famous primatologist Dr Jane Goodall, who is known for her efforts in trying to protect chimpanzees from extinction, hinted that maybe life in the US wasn't going to plan for the couple.

“I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but, yes, I’ve been in touch – though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging right now,” the 86-year-old told the Radio Times.

Meghan Markle's dad pens note to the Queen

Meghan's estranged father Thomas Markle has meanwhile been discharged from hospital after he suffered a stroke ahead of a planned trip to the UK for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Sources told The Sun he had lost his speech as a result of the stroke and told the Daily Mail he felt lucky to be alive.


Following his loss of speech due to his stroke, The Sun reports Thomas has had to cancel his planned trip to the UK, but penned the Queen a message on a whiteboard sending his apologies.

"I wanted to come to pay my respects to the Queen. I wish her a happy Jubilee and many more years," he reportedly wrote.
