Meghan Markle, Prince Harry are reportedly house hunting in Los Angeles

We may soon see Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on the West Coast.

According to reports, the royal couple is currently house hunting in Los Angeles, where they hope to spend their summers closer to Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland. 

“They love being in Canada, but they are looking at houses in L.A. too,” a close friend told People. “They’ll likely have houses in both places.”

As of now, Meghan and Harry have settled into a more private, low-key life on Vancouver Island, Canada. The two are reportedly renting a multi-million dollar mansion in North Saanich, where they've been spotted on hikes and strolls with their eight-month-old son, Archie. 

“They are enjoying living a quiet life,” the insider continued to People. “They go for long walks, they do yoga, and Meghan cooks. They are real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs.”

Weeks after Meghan was photographed on a walk with her son by paparazzi, the couple has stepped security at the Candian home, installing more fences, tarps and security cameras to keep the public away. 

In late January, Meghan and Harry's legal team sent a warning to British news outlets about photos, threatening "action" if the publications purchase or publish the pictures. The snapshots, which were described in the letter as "harassment," were reportedly captured by photographers hiding in bushes and using long-range lenses.
