Prince Harry and Meghan Markle let world know they remain loyal to the Queen after LA move
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex appear to be thoroughly enjoying quality family time as they self-isolate at their rented Malibu home. However, the commencement of the preliminary hearing of the court battle with a UK newspaper is said to have cast a shadow over their otherwise contented life. They have also faced criticism of their decision to blacklist certain media outlets.
The couple dialled in to the hearing from Malibu, making them the first royals to attend court remotely. Meghan is suing a newspaper over the publication of a private letter she’d sent to her estranged father Thomas Markle – who she reportedly hasn’t spoken to in two years – after her and Harry’s 2018 wedding.
Meghan’s lawyer claims the subsequent stories “deeply shocked and upset” her, adding, “It’s all about distress, it’s not about damage to reputation.”

As part of the legal action, painful aspects of the Sussexes’ life have already been aired, including text messages sent to the 75-year-old retired lighting director. It’s possible details of royal public funding will also be disclosed in the couple’s dispute, about a comment that described Meghan as having “immense wealth and privilege”.
Harry, 35 – who has found their move to California “challenging” according to close friend, primatologist Jane Goodall – set any misgivings aside last week to wish his grandmother, Her Majesty the Queen, a happy birthday via a Zoom call.
While other royals kept quiet about their private chats with the monarch, the Sussexes were keen to confirm details, perhaps in a bid to reassure people that relations with the royal haven’t soured.

Little Archie, who turns one on 6 May, joined his parents as they wished the Queen all the best for her 94th birthday, which she celebrated at Windsor Castle. The chance to see her youngest great-grandson will have thrilled the Queen, who said during her Christmas message that she was “delighted” by Archie’s arrival last year.
The family are currently said to be renting a “paparazzi-proof” £8 million mansion in a gated community, close to their friend Sir Elton John’s home. Boasting a pool and a gym, it’s believed to be heavily guarded. Harry and Meghan have been spotted, faces covered in bandanas, walking their dogs Oz and Guy and delivering food to Los Angeles locals in need during the coronavirus crisis.
In addition to this, Meghan, 38, has also given a rare interview about the Disney Elephant documentary that she provided a voiceover for.
Seemingly offering a nod to her and Harry’s understandably protective nature concerning Archie, she said of the majestic creatures, “Their memories are amazing, the close connection of the herd, the protectiveness over their young. I think they are a lot more like us than they are different.”
During the chat, which aired on Good Morning America, Meghan paid tribute to her son and husband by wearing gold necklaces featuring their birth signs, Taurus and Virgo.
