Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Close Circle of Friends in California Revealed

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are happily settled in the States, nearly two and a half years after they stepped back from royal duties. They're living their best life in their £11million mansion in Montecito, Santa Barbara with their two children Archie, three, and Lilibet, who turned one in June. 

While Los Angeles-born Meghan has friends in her home state, find out who has made it into the couple's inner circle in California.

Serena Williams

Tennis pro-Serena Williams first crossed paths with Meghan back in 2014 at a charity football match. "We hit it off immediately, taking pictures, laughing and chatting—not about tennis or acting, but about good old-fashioned girly stuff. So began our friendship…

"She quickly became a confidante I would text when I was travelling, the friend I would rally around for her tennis matches, and the down-to-earth chick I was able to grab lunch with a couple of weeks ago in Toronto," Meghan previously wrote on her now-defunct lifestyle website The Tig.

Serena used to be one of Meghan's neighbours when the Sussexes were briefly based in LA before moving to Montecito; the friends both lived in the same gated community in the exclusive Beverly Hills 90210 postcode. 

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom

The American singer and the British actor own property in Santa Barbara in the same gated community as Harry and Meghan. 

Speaking on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast in May 2021, Harry opened up about paparazzi attention and how his life in Montecito has allowed him more privacy.

"Having moved, has it got better?" Dax asked the royal. "Yeah, way better," Harry said, before adding: "Just two days ago Orlando Bloom sent me a message because he's down the road and we sort of keep in contact because of the paparazzi."

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah is a firm member of Meghan and Harry's 'squad' – they gave their first tell-all interview to the chat show host in 2021 after leaving royal life behind, plus their son Archie is a member of her book club, too. The media mogul was also a guest at the 2018 royal wedding.

Oprah owns a £40.9million mansion in Montecito, California. Dubbed 'The Promised Land', it could make an excellent little getaway for the Sussexes.

James Corden

James Corden has been friends with Harry for years, hence his invitation to the royal wedding in 2018 and more exclusive night-time reception. Harry also starred in The Late Late Show with James Corden show in 2021, where the pair rode a double-decker tourist bus around LA and the Duke opened up about life since leaving royal duties.

James lives in Brentwood, LA, with his family and was no doubt a friendly face for Harry when he first moved to California. The Brit is now heading back to the UK though after quitting his show.

Katharine McPhee

And last year, Katharine spoke about her husband's relationship with the Prince, revealing they were "like father and son". In an interview with Access Hollywood, she said: "My husband has a really, really beautiful relationship with Harry. They're like, they're so cute. They're like father and son."
