MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly considering a move to Los Angeles, Toronto or Vancouver Island after their dramatic exit from the British Royal Family.
The couple planned to settle in North America after they celebrated the holidays in a $20 million waterfront property waterfront mansion there, according to royal sources.
But they are reportedly considering planting roots somewhere familiar to Meghan, with Toronto and her native LA being possible contenders, reports the Telegraph.
A source connected to the leafy North American home said their accomodation there was a shortterm arrangement over the Christmas period as celebrity pals in the US rallied around Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35.
The former Suits actress was born and raised in LA but lived in Toronto to film Suits between 2011 and 2016, so she has strong ties to both places.
Meghan and Harry returned to the Canadian city for the Invictus Games a sporting event which was pioneered by the Duke.
After The Sun exclusively revealed their plans to leave the UK, the Duchess jetted back to the sleepy Canadian town where eight-month-old Archie was minded by a nanny, stylist Jessica Mulroney, and Meghan's family.
Markle arrived in Vancouver late Thursday, and then took a connecting flight to a nearby hamlet where she and Harry had previously enjoyed a lengthy vacation in November.
Archie remained there when his mom and dad returned to London to inform Queen Elizabeth of their bombshell plan to step down from their roles as senior members of the royal family.
But reports indicate Meghan hasn't booked a return flight but Vancouver Island is reportedly a bit too quiet for the power couple who are hoping to become financially independent of the royal purse strings.
Their Frogmore Cottage was refurbished using £2.4million worth of British taxpayers' money has been empty since last November but the couple reportedly plan to keep it as a UK base.
But the Daily Mail report they have already shipped their beloved pets, including the rescue beagle 'Guy' and a female black Labrador puppy travelled with them to Canada in November and haven't returned.
Sources say this was a massive clue, telling the publication: "Both the duke and duchess adore their dogs and Guy has already been relocated from Canada to London once when Meghan moved over.
"She wouldn't have considered a move again for him if it wasn't going to be at least semi-permanent."
It would appear the couple may be planning a more longterm stay in Vancouver Island considering they moved their pets there.
North Canada certainly has fond memories for the couple: Harry often visited Meghan there when they were dating and she was filming Suits.
Harry now faces an awkward appearance at Buckingham Palace next Thursday to host the draw for next year’s Rugby League World Cup but will reportedly join his wife in Canada as early as next week.
Although the "upset" Queen and Prince Charles hope some arrangement can be reached, it's not clear what role Harry and Meghan will plan within the royal family following their unexpected "step back."
The Sun can exclusively reveal Her Ryoal Majesty has summoned Charles, William and Harry to a historic summit at Sandringham on Monday to thrash out the Royal Family’s future.
Her Majesty also aims to sort the Sussexes’ roles, and Meghan could join in via conference call.
The Queen’s former press secretary Dickie Arbiter said: “This is a landmark meeting which is absolutely unprecedented.”
A Palace source confirmed they will also discuss the “next steps” for the monarchy, with an announcement due within days.
The meeting will be the first time Harry has come face-to-face with his gran since revealing his plan to quit frontline duties last week.
The summit comes as the royals face their biggest crisis since Princess Diana’s death in 1997.
Earlier this week, Meghan and Harry were slammed for the secrecy surrounding their North American bolt-hole home in Vancouver island where they plotted their shock “abdication."
The couple refused to say if they paid for their six-week stay or even confirm who the property belongs to.
Neighbours say the sprawling mansion where they stayed is owned by a Russian billionaire, but his name is not on any public paperwork.
The home was purchased for approximately $15 million, but since then has seen a spike in value.
It raises questions over the transparency of their monetary arrangements at a time when they want to become “financially independent."
Reports have also emerged about the detrimental impact of their decision to leave on Harry's mental health after Prince Charles reportedly realized his son was at his "tipping point."
