Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly hoping to spend more time in Los Angeles this year and are supposedly shopping for a home base in her former hometown. The news comes as rumors about Meghan's desire to get back into movies and television have been heating up.
According to an inside source who spoke to People this week, Meghan's family -- including her mother Doria Ragland -- and friends live in the city, fueling her desire to spend time there. The duke and duchess aren't planning to move there full-time, however, as they are reportedly enjoying their new life in Vancouver, Canada.
"They love being in Canada, but they are looking at houses in L.A. too," the source said. "They'll likely have houses in both places."
The couples' friends have been spending time in Vancouver and the Duchess of Sussex was recently seen picking up her friends, Heather Dorak and Abigail Spencer, from the Victoria International Airport. Meghan's mother has also visited the couple and their son Archie in their new home.
Reportedly, the couple is enjoying the more laid-back environment in the Canadian city.
"They are enjoying living a quiet life," an insider says. "They go for long walks, they do yoga, and Meghan cooks. They're real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs."
The duchess has admitted in the past that this was the kind of life she was looking for.
"I was born and raised in Los Angeles, a California girl who lives by the ethos that most things can be cured with either yoga, the beach or a few avocados," she once wrote on her blog.
The news of the move comes as rumors heat up about Meghan's desire to get back to Hollywood. The couple shocked many when they announced they were going to take a step back from their royal duties so they could pursue independent charity work and no longer be financially tied to the Crown.Since then, Meghan has inked a deal with Disney and rumors have popped up that she was considering making an appearance on her friends' upcoming reality show on Netflix in Canada. While those have been debunked, there has still been talk that the duchess wanted to move back to the West Coast of the U.S. so she could pursue the limelight, as The Inquisitr previously reported.
While the Duke of Sussex has shot down rumors that it was his wife's decision to push them away from royal life, there have been reports that she is seeking representation to find work in North America as an actor.
