While they spent £2.4 million renovating their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor to get it to their tastes, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now said to be splashing out $13 million on a new home in Los Angeles, their permanent base post-Megxit.
According to The Sun, the couple are looking at a six-bedroom mansion in the wealthy Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles, where they would count actors Ben Affleck and Tom Hanks as neighbours.
The home that they are looking to buy is currently occupied by the Fast and Furious producer Steve Chasman, and features an acre of land, a giant play area, a swimming pool, home cinema and pergola with sea views.
There is also room for a granny flat, with the plan being for Meghan’s mother Doria to move in to help the couple with their soon-to-be one-year-old son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
'Once quarantine and lockdown are over, Harry and Meghan will be moving into their new pad - and they want Doria to be included in these plans,' a source told The Sun.
'She is hugely independent though, and doesn't want to be in their space. She will have her own granny annex.'
Since moving to Los Angeles from Canada at the end of March, the couple have been renting a home near friends Sir Elton John and David Furnish. According to reports in TMZ last month, the couple’s budget for a new home is between $12-18 million.
They have only been spotted in California on a handful of occasions since moving there, walking their dogs and delivering food parcels to the vulnerable for Project Angel Food charity.
On Wednesday the couple will celebrate their son Archie’s first birthday in lockdown, scrapping their plans to have a celebrity-filled bash.
