Moving far away from a place where you have lived your entire life is never easy. However, unlike many people, Prince Harry is currently taking this experience to a whole new level. He left the United Kingdom, the place that he has called home since he was a child, and relocated to another country altogether.
Although his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Prince Harry has only visited the United States, never lived there. So, we can only imagine that it may be a bit of a culture shock for the prince now that he is living in an environment that is so extremely different from the one he is used to.
As we all know, the world is going through a very difficult time having to deal with the current COVID-19 pandemic. Millions of people are separated from their families and friends as everyone continues to stay at home during this period of self-isolation. Prince Harry, however, is so accustomed to having everyone who is close to him nearby, and now a royal expert says that the prince is “separate” and isolated in Los Angeles without his family. Let’s look further.
Resigning from royal duties
Fans have known for quite some time that Meghan and Prince Harry weren’t exactly happy with life as senior working royals. Ever since they announced that they were in a serious relationship, the British tabloids have been nothing less than brutal, making a point of bashing the couple whenever the opportunity arose.
Meghan, in particular, has taken serious backlash from the media from everything to her mixed-race heritage to her intentions as a member of the royal family. Over the few years that Meghan and Prince Harry were married, it seemed that things went from bad to worse, with Prince Harry releasing a statement in defense of his wife.
Unfortunately, the situation just didn’t improve, and according to The Daily Beast, Meghan and Prince Harry made the decision to step down from their positions within the royal family.
Making the move to Los Angeles
At the beginning of their relationship, Meghan and Prince Harry lived at Nottingham Cottage, a small, cozy home on the grounds of Kensington Palace. It was thought that after they became husband and wife, that they would remain at the royal residence, moving the short distance to apartment 1, next door to Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
Instead, Meghan and Prince Harry surprised their fans when they packed up and left for Windsor, in search of a quieter life away from the glaring spotlight of London. Apparently, the couple didn’t find what they were looking for, and after their plans for Megxit were announced, they, along with Baby Archie, spent a few months in Canada.
Although many people thought that they would make Vancouver their permanent residence, they instead decided to relocate to Meghan’s hometown of Los Angeles, California.
Prince Harry is ‘separate’ and isolated in Los Angeles without his family
There is absolutely no doubt that Los Angeles and London are worlds apart, so it is only expected that it would take some time for Prince Harry to get used to his new surroundings. However, it is a little more complicated than that, and Express even reports that a royal expert claims Prince Harry is “separate” and isolated in Los Angeles without his family.
“I very much think that Harry will be suffering from irrelevancy,” said royal expert Angela Mollard. “Right now, the world is not focused on them.”
He knew for months that they would be miles apart, so why is he feeling this way? Well, as it turns out, in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, Prince Harry isn’t able to do what he wants to do. He isn’t in communication with the rest of the royals, and it is likely that the entire situation has him feeling a bit lonely.
Mollard added: “He is separated from his family at a time when the rest of the world is using Zoom or WhatsApp to chat with each other. I can hardly see that happening, he must feel very separate. He doesn’t have friends in LA, she does.”
