California has reportedly become Prince Harry’s ‘spiritual home’ after leaving the UK

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have stepped down as royal family members and relocated to California, but that certainly doesn't stop them from making headlines.

This past year has been no exception as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed the news that they were expecting their second child, announced that they would not be returning to royal duties and took part in a tell-all interview with Oprah.

The rare move for the notoriously private couple saw record numbers of viewers, with the Duke and Duchess speaking about everything from mental health and their relationship with the royal family to their current pregnancy, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle even revealing that they are expecting a baby girl.

Since the interview, they have only made more news, from their huge Netflix deal and Meghan's words on gender equity to their son Archie's birthday, releasing a special photograph just this month.

It was their California location that made the most headlines this week, as reports emerged recently that Prince Harry had found his 'spiritual home'.

Journalist Bryony Gordon opened up about the Duke of Sussex in an article for The Daily Telegraph, revealing that since leaving the Firm last year, he has found a ‘sense of purpose’.

'The anger of the past has gone, and it has been replaced with a sense of purpose,' Bryony explained. 'California is not just Harry’s physical home for now – it is also his spiritual one, where nobody thinks anything of openly discussing their struggles.'

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not yet responded.
