When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their split from the royal family in January 2020, fans waited in anticipation for the couple's next steps.
Where would they go? What would they do? Are they still royals? These questions and more circled media headlines for months on end as information became available and speculation increased.
After Meghan and Harry's exit from the royal stage went into effect at the conclusion of their farewell tour in March 2020, the two took some major steps to change the landscape of their lives.
In April 2020, the couple sent a letter to four U.K. tabloids – the Daily Mail, The Sun, the Express, and the Mirror – announcing that they would no longer be engaging with them in any way except through lawyers.
The letter came after Harry made it quite clear in early 2020 that misinformation spread by the media contributed to their decision to exit the royal stage in the first place.
Since parting ways with the royal family, Meghan and Harry have taken on some serious endeavors to make it on their own (which, considering they still have money in their blood, might not be as difficult).
Independent from Buckingham Palace, Meghan has taken on a Disney documentary on elephants while Harry has launched a new project, which provides mental health care for the U.K. military, among other initiatives.
But amid all this change, one major question went unanswered until now: Where would the family of three call home?
Meghan and Harry are going to be surrounded by Hollywood A-listers
As it turns out, "home" for Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and baby Archie is now in Los Angeles rather than in Canada, where the family initially set up shop.
Meghan and Harry are eyeing a mansion right around the corner from Pacific Palisades, a coastal and affluent residential neighborhood that is home to other famous celebs like Tom Hanks and Ben Affleck, according to the Daily Mail.
Unsurprisingly, the $13 million crib is no less than a castle itself. It boasts luxuries fit for a king and queen (or, rather, a duke and duchess) — six bedrooms, a pool and outdoor patio area shrouded by luscious greenery, priceless ocean views from various parts of the house, high cathedral ceilings, and their very own in-home cinema.
Combined, the various bright bedrooms, stunning staircase, and open floor plan strike the perfect balance between a sleek and cozy atmosphere. The property, which belongs to Fast and Furious producer Steve Chasman as of this writing, lands right in the couple's $12 to $18 million budget and is in their preferred area.
A source close to the matter explained to Daily Mail, "Obviously, under lockdown, they won't be moving house any time soon but they are both looking forward to laying down more permanent roots in Los Angeles, and making it home."
