Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quietly shop for mansions in LA
He’s not the Fresh Prince of Bel Air — yet.
Ex-royals Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have stepped up their house hunt in Los Angeles, Gimme Shelter can report exclusively.
“They are quietly looking at mansions in the $15 million to $20 million range that are both beautiful and secluded, offering the privacy they need,” our source says.
The couple, parents to almost-1-year-old Archie, are focusing their search on ritzy areas including Beverly Hills and Brentwood, in some cases working alongside “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles” broker Josh Altman. When reached by Gimme Shelter, though, Altman declined to comment.
One of the homes the ex-royals have expressed interest in is in Beverly Hills. Thought it’s not currently on the market, the modern property has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms on just over one acre, according to an old listing on Realtor.com.
Listing photos show a sleek infinity pool and impressive views of downtown Los Angeles.
A former owner had listed that mansion for $60 million, but it traded hands in February for a more palatable $38 million. The former price is out of the ex-royals’ price range, a source adds, saying that they are still in talks about the house.
Another home they are eyeing is in the Brentwood neighborhood. Also off-market, this California traditional sits on more than a half acre but is tucked behind gates and hedges.
There are six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, per an old Realtor.com listing, as well as light-filled rooms, stained oak floors, a wine cellar and a theater with stadium seating. Outside, there’s a pool, a spa and room for barbecue.
Both Meghan and Harry have Hollywood interests these days — a documentary Meghan narrated, “Elephant,” was released on Disney+ earlier this month — and they really want to find a place they can call home, the source adds.
