According to TMZ, the couple's new Santa Barbara neighbours feel their “privacy is being compromised” by the paparazzi presence hoping to get a glimpse of the family.

Prince Harry is also 'frustrated' that he can't visit his family in Balmoral because of coronavirus restrictions.

After quitting the Royal Family in January, the couple temporarily moved to Canada before fleeing to LA before the coronavirus crisis took hold.

    The Duchess of Sussex's name has been turned into a verb meaning to "value yourself and mental health" and “leave situations” when it all gets too much.

    The new “verb” was first shared on Twitter and posted on Instagram by actress, body positivity activist and former Radio One DJ Jameela Jamil – who was included in Meghan's 'Forces for Change' issue of British Vogue.

    The faux-dictionary definition of the verb reads: “To value yourself and mental health enough to up and leave a room/ situation / environment in which your authentic self is not welcomed or wanted.

    “Person A: Where's Ryan? Person B: Oh, he Meghan Markled.”

    This weekend The Sun exclusively revealed Jameela had been invited to Meghan's new Santa Barbara mansion.

    She said: “Meghan was one of those children that would stand up for underdog.

    Speaking to the Daily Mail, the insiders claimed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge “welcomed Meghan with open arms” and invited her to their Norfolk home Amner Hall – where Kate reportedly cooked vegan meals for her then future sister-in-law.

    The insiders hit back at claims made by the co-author of bombshell biography Finding Freedom that Kate “purposefully snubbed” Meghan at the Commonwealth Service in Westminster Abbey in March.

    The source said: “It's just completely wrong to suggest they didn't talk and plain wrong to say the Cambridges weren't welcoming.

    “How can you say they weren't warm or welcoming when they hosted Meghan for Christmas, invited her into their totally private inner sanctum at Anmer Hall and did everything they could to make her feel at home? They personally cooked her favourite vegan food, they couldn't have been more welcoming.”

    Meghan is known to be talented in the kitchen and regularly posted about her culinary delights on her now-deleted lifestyle site, The Tig.

    And it turns out she is using this skill to her advantage with the royal youngsters.

    A source told ET in March 2018: “An avid cook, Meghan often pops around to visit with Kate and the kids, dropping off treats.”

    Tasty goods are the way to all of our hearts so Meghan is sure to be a hit with the adorable tots!

    In the biography, co-authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claim: “Meghan would agree with the assessment that the duchesses were not the best of friends.
