Meghan and Harry Are Moving to North America

Meghan and Harry Are Moving to North America

Over the last few months, Meghan and Harry have been adjusting to life as new parents and have shocked, not only Buckingham Palace but everyone else around the world as well with their recent confession!

The Shocking News

It came as breaking news today that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have decided to step down from the Royal family, and aim to build a life for themselves, independently. Taking to their social media account they wrote, “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen”! Say what?

Continuing they stated that they “plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America”. So let’s take a look at all the reasons they have reached this decision.

Looking for help

Considering we’ve seen very little of the couple with their baby, it’s hard to say how well they’re coping as parents. We can only assume they’ve gotten a handle on things, although there have undoubtedly been times when they’ve felt overwhelmed.

It’s in those moments that they’ve probably wished there was someone around to help them. While they likely have nannies and other staff to serve that purpose, it’s not quite the same when the person isn’t family.

A new home

Archie’s birth came at a somewhat stressful time in Harry and Meghan’s lives. Weeks before he arrived, the couple moved into their new digs in Windsor. They set themselves up in Frogmore Cottage, a building that was remodeled from staff living quarters into a family home.

Considering the building wasn’t suitable for the pair in its original condition, it had to undergo millions of dollars worth of renovation. That was the kind of added stress the duo didn’t need at such a pivotal moment in their lives. Thankfully, things have since settled down and allowed the couple to raise their son in peace.

Back to the States

However, despite only recently moving into Frogmore Cottage, it seems Harry and Meghan are already thinking about buying a new house. Although the Windsor residence will continue to be their main base of operations, they’re reportedly looking to branch out somewhere across the pond.

A home in the States would hardly be down the road from where they live now, but the couple is apparently desperate to make the move. Given she hails from America, it’s safe to assume that Meghan has grown a little homesick since becoming a UK citizen. However, that’s not the only reason they want to skip town.

Close to grandma

In terms of moving to America, the duo isn’t looking at staying just anywhere. Harry and Meghan are supposedly interested in buying somewhere in Los Angeles, and there’s one main factor influencing that decision. The city is where Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, lives.

Having a property in LA would mean the Duchess could spend time with her mom far more often than she does now. It would also mean that the grandmother wouldn’t always have to travel across the pond just to see her grandson. We can’t imagine that she’s a massive fan of all those ten-hour flights to London.

Somebody to lean on

We’re sure that Meghan would be thrilled to be closer to her mom for several reasons. The most obvious of these is that they’d get to see each other more often. Now that Meghan is a duchess living in the UK, she rarely has the opportunity to spend time with her mother.

Being in the States – even if just temporarily – would make a considerable difference to that. It would also give the new mom someone to lean on whenever she needs help with Archie. Doris was a massive help to Meghan after the birth, and the Duchess probably misses that assistance.

Summer breaks

If Meghan and Harry do buy somewhere in LA, it won’t be their permanent residence. Apparently, it will act as somewhere that the couple can stay with Archie during the summer. Once he’s in school, they’ll be able to time their visits with his breaks.

That way, they can enjoy their time in the States without interfering with his education. Plus, given the UK isn’t known for having glorious summers, the pair wouldn’t be missing much back home either.
