Ever since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced they were stepping back from royal duties last week, royal fans have been speculating about where the couple will call home. 

In the Sussex's bombshell announcement on Wednesday, the couple revealed that they intend to split their time between the United Kingdom and North America, leaving many to believe that Canada will become the couple's second home. Not only is the Commonwealth country where Meghan and Harry spent the bulk of their six-week break from duties over the holidays, but it's also where the duchess and Archie have been living since the royal shakeup.

However, according to new reports, Meghan and Harry have their eyes set on Los Angeles as their "long-term plan," but not while President Trump is in office. 

"It’s by no means an immediate thing but there is a long-term plan to end up back in the US with a second home in Canada, where they will also spent a great deal of time," a source told the Daily Mail.

"The couple used the words North America in their statement about where they planned to live deliberately. It doesn’t pin them down to any one place," they continued. 

The Duchess of Sussex has been openly critical about the president and was not present either time he visited Buckingham Palace. Meghan was on maternity leave during Trump's state visit in June 2018; the second visit was this December, when she and Harry were just starting their sabbatical. 

According to her Instagram, Meghan supported Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential race. In a 2016 interview, the former actress called Trump "divisive" and "misogynistic," adding that she "might just stay in Canada" if Trump won the election.
