Meghan Markle has ‘expressed an interest’ in a breathtaking £21million waterfront mansion in Canada offering the perfect new start for the couple and eight-month-old Archie.
The 6,900-square foot property boasts six bedrooms and five bathrooms across four sprawling floors in west Vancouver.
The beach-side mansion is on a row of extravagant properties dubbed ‘Golden Miles’ and its full-length windows offer panoramic ocean views.
Harry and Meghan would be able to protect their sought-after privacy by the mansion’s gates, tall hedges and 20-foot wall adjacent to the beach.
This comes after Harry attended an emergency ‘Megxit’ summit at Sandringham with Prince Charles and Prince William on Monday following the couple’s shock statement saying they would step back from senior royal duties and split their time between Britain and North America.
The Queen announced – in a deeply personal message – that she had agreed for Meghan and Harry to plough ahead with the move, saying that the couple would have a ‘transition period’ living between the UK and Canada.
A property source told The Sun: ‘The area is particularly sought after by super-rich and image conscious young achievers.’
They added: ‘Best of all for Harry and Meghan, it’s quiet and locals respect each other and value their privacy. They’d fit in very well.’
The couple’s neighbours would include Lululemon Athletica founder Chip Wilson who lives in a £38 million mansion.
This property would be the second Canadian property Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, have enjoyed.
For several weeks over Christmas and New Year they and their baby son Archie holidayed at Mille Fleurs, a £10.7 million waterfront mansion on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, which is expected to be the Sussexes’ home during the ‘transition period’.
And Harry and Meghan’s staff at Frogmore Cottage are reportedly being ‘let go’, in the surest sign yet the couple will settle permanently in Canada with the Duchess strongly rumoured never to return.
More than £2.4million of tax payers money was spent on the couple’s Grade II listed house, according to royal accounts that were published last summer.
Harry is expected to join Meghan in Canada soon, after spending time in Britain to work out the terms for the couple quitting.
