In a statement released earlier this year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed they would be stepping down as 'senior royals' and splitting their time between the UK and North America. Buckingham Palace later confirmed that the couple would lose their HRH titles and become financially independent by March 31st, and the Queen issued a statement supporting their decision.

The Sussexes are reportedly enjoying 'the quiet life' in Canada, and while speculation mounted that they could be moving to Toronto a new report suggests that the couple are looking to find a property in Los Angeles.

A source close to the pair told PEOPLE magazine: 'They love being in Canada, but they are looking at houses in LA too. They’ll likely have houses in both places.'

Earlier this month, outlets reported that the couple are looking to find a home in California.

A source told E! that ‘[Meghan and Harry] have started to look at homes online and are in the process of interviewing security teams. They are getting their ducks in a row and seeing if it’s logistically possible.

'They’ve reached out to people in L.A. and would like to assemble a team of locals.'

Another source told PEOPLE magazine: 'This is what Meghan and Harry have always wanted — to create their own life. It's got to feel like an immense relief to get out of the UK and go down their own path.'
