Meghan Markle reportedly finding LA lockdown ‘incredibly hard’

They arrived in the city as social-distancing measures were brought in

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is reportedly finding it tough being in lockdown in her new Los Angeles home.

The Duchess of Sussex, along with her husband Prince Harry and son Archie, moved to her hometown of LA from their rented home in Canada just as coronavirus started to wreak havoc across the world.

It was meant to bring her closer to her friends and her mother, Doria Ragland, who lives in the city.

However, the strict social-distancing measures will have scuppered any hopes of catching up with them. And a royal expert reckons Meghan will be suffering as a consequence.

Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight: “This must be incredibly hard for Meghan, being so close to her mother, just a matter of miles away.

“It is equally difficult for Doria, because she won’t have been able to seen Archie yet.
