Harry is ‘homesick’ despite Meghan seeking ‘perfect LA life’ claims expert
Prince Harry is looking “homesick” and playing polo in California shows he is falling back on a sport he used to enjoy back in the UK, said a royal expert.
The Duke of Sussex is also starting to socialise and go out for drinks with new pals as Meghan Markle tries to make him feel settled so that they can have a “perfect LA life”, claimed royal author Duncan Larcombe.
The comments came after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex jetted back to the United States following their brief and understated stay in the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations at the start of this month.
The ex-royal couple live in the exclusive neighbourhood of Montecito, in an £11million mansion, and recently Meghan was photographed watching Harry play polo at their local club.
But, despite their luxurious lifestyle, Mr Larcombe believes that Harry’s “self-imposed exile” may be getting him down.

Speaking to Closer, he said: “He seems homesick to me. Harry’s suddenly playing polo again and drinking with his new friends – all things he used to enjoy doing in the UK.
“Meghan is cheering him on on the sidelines, helping create this perfect LA life for him to justify what he’s given up in the UK. But something doesn’t seem to sit right. Harry looks unhappy.
“He is living out there in self-imposed exile and Harry is a very sociable person.
“In his formative years he had lots of friends – including his estranged brother William – and was always spending time with them. He must sometimes wonder if everything he has given up has been worth it.”

January this year marked two years since Harry and Meghan announced they were quitting life as working members of the Royal Family.
Two months after that was when they hopped on a plane to LA.
Since then the Sussexes have amassed a long list of celebrity pals who live nearby – including Orlando Bloom and Kate Perry whose children are said to have had play dates with Archie and Lilibet.
Oprah Winfrey – whose bombshell interview with the Sussexes aired in March last year – is also said to be among their new pals.
