Upon returning from their ‘farewell tour’ of the UK, the duke and duchess have left their Vancouver retreat to spend more time in California.

From Abigail Spencer who owns a home in Studio City, California to Janina Gavankar who resides in a 1900 square foot apartment in LA, Meghan will likely seek out the company of her California crew.

According to People Magazine, the family of three are at a “secluded compound and haven’t ventured out amid the coronavirus pandemic.” As Prince Charles recently tested positive for the virus, the Sussexes are likely being cautious about their interactions outside their living quarters. Harry and Meghan are surely spending their downtime doting on baby Archie while they settle into their new urban existence.

The famous family are believed to be building a three million dollar three-bedroom home in the countryside of the Cotswolds near the Beckhams estate. The site is close to the Soho Farmhouse Oxfordshire — recent photos show a secluded cottage under construction by the private members only club.
