Los Angeles isn’t for the faint of heart, and it’s certainly not for anyone uncomfortable with fame and intrusive media.
It wouldn’t be a royals story without some family drama. In this episode, Prince William is worried about his brother and sister-in-law living in Los Angeles. For obvious reasons, L.A. isn’t exactly where you move to when you want to escape the paparazzi, and apparently, William is the only royal who understands that.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been staying at Tyler Perry’s $18M sprawling compound in Beverly Hills since they stepped away from their royal duties earlier this year. Finding their own home has been challenging, with a global pandemic taking place right now, among other things. But staying in an exclusive, gated community where nobody can gain access to you has its drawbacks.
As the Observer reports, there have been at least five incidents in which drones were illegally flown just 20 feet above Perry’s home in order to capture photos of the couple with their son, Archie.
While the move to Los Angeles has been pretty seamless for Markle, who was raised in the City of Angels, Harry has been leaning on his older brother for emotional support, especially now that he’s living in an area known for its celebrity worship.
A source told Us Weekly that Wills has “advised Harry to return to London or move elsewhere” and that “he’s concerned about his brother’s well-being and safety.”
The insider also said that Harry had “unrealistic expectations” of life in Los Angeles and “saw L.A. through rose-colored glasses.”
