The Sussexes could move to NYC because they’re ‘micro-celebrities’ in CA?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are seen after a visit to One World Observatory with Governor Hochul and Mayor de Blasio

On the heels of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s successful tour of New York, the announcement came that Harry would attend the Intrepid Valor Awards on November 10, in New York. The awards are for veterans and it seemed very on-brand for Harry. In that post, I wrote that I hoped that the Biden administration or First Lady’s office also had some stuff for Harry to do around Veterans Day/Remembrance Day and that it’s possible that Harry would spend a few days on the East Coast, maybe do some events in DC and New York. I also suggested that Harry and Meghan’s reception was so great in New York, they should probably get a place in Manhattan and be bicoastal. Well, now a royal commentator is saying that the Sussexes really might really move to New York? Eh.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are considering a move to New York in order to enhance their brand as “micro-celebrities”, a royal commentator has claimed. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have recently returned to their home in California after conducting a 3-day tour in the city, where they met with a number of high-ranking officials to discuss vaccine equity, mental health, and racial equality.

Royal commentator Neil Sean claimed: “It doesn’t really come as any surprise that the story coming back to me from a very good source is that Harry and Meghan now see themselves being pitched out in New York. Now this could mean yet another move but why? Now the real reason apparently why Harry and Meghan have fallen in love with the Big Apple is simply this – as ever now they are not royals but micro-celebrities, they have to think about how they can build their brand, make money.

“All the big influencers are not necessarily out in California. As they’ve seen over the last 18 months, what was once the golden days of Hollywood seemed to have really petered out, streaming seems to be the way forward.”

He also added that recent reports suggested that the couple were considering a “small place” in the city, to use as their base when conducting engagements in New York.

I love it when royal-commentators show their asses and reveal how little they know about America, American culture or American business. Harry and Meghan are not “micro-celebrities,” they are fully welcome in Hollywood and they’re part of the California A-list. Doing what they’re doing – building their brand, running their own production company, operating a large charitable foundation – could be done anywhere. It’s clear they love Montecito because of the space, privacy and proximity to LA. That being said, they absolutely should buy a place in New York. Just for fun, to watch heads explode over in La Isla de Saltines.

    I don’t get why this is weird for the British media. Clearly they are people who don’t understand America at all.

    Pretty much anyone who has the money and has work on both coasts have homes on both coasts. I would be surprised if they didn’t get an apartment in NYC or DC to stay in when they’re here for work.

    • Neners says:

      Why is he pitching it like “CA used to be influential but isn’t now. NYC is the latest up and coming city for influential people.”

      It’s freaking NEW YORK CITY! Also, the US is huge. It’s sort of expected that anyone who runs major business will have bases on both coasts. I just — what?!

      • Tiffany :) says:

        “ the golden days of Hollywood seemed to have really petered out, streaming seems to be the way forward.”

        Um, a huge amount of streaming content is filmed in CA. Netflix has 2 facilities (studios/offices) here. Streaming is how it’s viewed, not how it’s made, ya fool!

      • Becks1 says:

        I don’t think I’ve ever heard NYC described as “up and coming”. It’s kind of already at the top, so to speak, lol.

      • swirlmamad says:

        The ignorance is astounding in that one sentence: “NYC is the latest up and coming city for influential people.”

        Dude…. “up and coming?” NYC has BEEN at the top and arrived. Neil Sean sounds like a damn fool.

      • Eurydice says:

        @Tiffany – It seems he thinks streaming involves an actual stream – in which case, maybe they should move to Michigan.

      • Christine says:

        That one sentence makes this article more appropriate for 1821, not 2021. What an utter moron.

    • Jane says:

      I’m British and I don’t understand it either – the entire UK could fit into one of the smaller US states and the royal family all have multiple homes in it, so why exactly would it be odd if H&M had a second home on the other side of an entire continent?

      • Debbie says:

        Yup. I thought of that too, and when they phrase the possibility of another home or flat as the Sussexes “moving yet again” like they were nomads, even while the BM wrote so matter-of-factly about the Cambridges buying another large house a few months ago, like it was nothing.

    • GraceB says:

      The tabloids don’t think it’s weird. They just change their opinion to fit the narrative and couldn’t pick a lane to save their lives. They’ll have an article in a couple of days about how some other celeb has homes in LA, NYC and probably the Hamptons too.

      Having lived in LA for a couple of years, I do think it’s the strangest place I’ve ever lived (and I’ve moved around a lot). I can see why NYC would appeal but I agree that this probably isn’t an either/or decision for them.

    • lulubrown says:

      I see Emily Andrews is not the only Royal reporter the reads Celebitchy. That guy read that here. This is exactly what was discussed when Harry and Meghan spent 3 days in New York.

    • Chaz says:

      California is bigger than Great Britain in terms of land mass. In rounded off terms CA GDP is about 2.5 trillion $ & GB is about
      2.8 trillion $. The BM really tries to punch above their weight class when writing about the US. They need to stick with Shelter Island news.

      • Rémy says:

        Last I checked California’s economy was fifth in the world. It’s bigger than the UK, which ranks as sixth.

      • PixiePaperdoll says:

        The island of Britain is the size of Michigan. And London has more people than the state.

      • PinkestSlip says:

        Every piece they write about the US or anyone in it is just a mega-exercise in throwing shade: they can’t admit they’re as envious as all get-out of everything and everyone American! They’re the same with any country who has trounced them. I remember years ago in Australia there was a documentary shown about Brits who’d moved to Australia and hated it. You shoulda heard them, their complaints were insane: “the birds are annoying,” says one wally, from his 2 acre riverside property, which he’d never hope to be able to afford in the UK; it went on like that, just slamming every beautiful natural part of the Australian country. Ridiculous little salties…

    • Truthiness says:

      I absolutely love the idea of the Sussexes picking up a place in NYC. If you were playing a board game this would be like establishing bases where an opponent can’t go. Andrew already can’t come here because he is wanted for questioning, let’s take it off the board for the rest of the Windsors. William wouldn’t dare.

  2. MaryContrary says:

    Get an apartment-sure. Relocate full time-absolutely not. The level of privacy afforded them by living in gorgeous Montecito, the space for their children, the proximity to her mom and long time friends, the weather: this guy doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about. He’s a nobody trying to make a name for himself.

    • Pao says:

      Yeah i don’t think they’ll leave montecito for at least 10 years if ever. Archie is now going to daycare there. They have all the privacy they can afford themselves. And its close enough to LA, where their friends and Doria live. They’re not giving that up to live in downtown NYC.

    • Concern Fae says:

      Nope. They stay in hotels with full security when they visit and the cost can be charged to their business/foundation. They don’t need to be tying up capital up with an empty NYC apartment.

      If they are going to spend months of the year in NYC, fine. Even then, better to rent.

      I would roast them for that. There is a severe housing shortage in major US cities and the ultra rich owning multiple homes is a big part of the problem. It also means that what is being built is tax shelter ultra luxury garbage instead of homes the “normal wealthy” could afford. Which squeezes out people with high paying jobs, etc.

      • Emmitt says:

        The “Ultra Rich” owning multiple homes from coast to coast is not why Sally making $40K can’t buy a home. If that’s the case, why not roast the Sussexes for buying a home in the first place? Why didn’t they just buy a tri-level somewhere instead of that Montecito estate with 16 bathrooms?

    • Emmitt says:

      Actually the Sussexes COULD move to New York City and be perfectly private. Plenty of celebrities live in NYC and people see them out and about living their lives and nobody gives one single solitary ****.

      Montecito is perfect for them because it’s Meghan’s home state, she’s close to her mom and they have a beautiful home with space for the children and the dogs to run around and play and not be bothered.

      Remember, Meghan was in NYC for a couple of days for her baby shower and no one knew until the royal roaches were tipped off about it.

    • Deering24 says:

      Even if you have goo-gobs of money, living in NYC full-time is tough going. Laid-back place it will never be, though it is a lot of fun if you visit—or have the right personality to live there. One suspects the Sussexes are perfectly happy chillin West Coast style…🙂🙂😎😎 As well, they probably had more than enough of city living when they were in London.

  3. JT says:

    I want them to just buy a place in New York just for the meltdowns alone because I’m petty like that.

    • Tom says:

      Yes! And a pap stroll in front of Zabar’s, eating a bagel.

    • L84Tea says:

      I’m sure the BM would love for them to take up permanent residence in NYC because it would be easier to spot them and stalk them. They have way more privacy where they are now. But it wouldn’t surprise me if they did get a place there to have a base when they are working. But I can’t imagine that ever being a permanent spot. The BM wishes.

    • goofpuff says:

      Agreed. The whole “micro-celebrities” thing. DANG someone in KP is super is JEALOUS! If M&H are micro-celebrities, it kind of makes W&K non-existent celebrities….

    • NiqGee says:

      I want them to buy an estate in the UK. That would really make the heads explode. Something that is entirely theirs. No ‘Grace and Favour’. Nothing TOBB can control or manipulate. Something that Archie and Lili can inherit because the UK is part of their legacy.

      Imagine if they bought their own ‘Sandringham’ or ‘Balmoral’. The collective explosion would be felt for miles.

      Petty me wants that for them.

      • Bethany Grey says:

        I have dreams of them buying the Wentworth estate from the National Trust, making it the home of the Dukes of Sussex!

  4. Nicole says:

    This is the first time I’ve ever heard the term “Micro Celebrity”. There is no way they would get the space and privacy in NYC. Now a decent flat for business trips and the like make sense, but odds are good that Santa Barbara will always be their home base if for no other reason than to be close to her mother. At her core she’s a California kid. And if you were born and raised here, it’s pretty hard to leave.

    And as a Californian, we’ve adopted Harry too.

    • Mac says:

      Micro-celebrity is a marketing term that refers to a person on You Tube, TikTok, etc. who has a decent sized and well defined audience and can be hired to plug products. Kody Antle is a micro-celebrity. H+M are superstars.

      • Keri says:

        So they’re really talking about the micro Keens & their YouTube channel but without the sizable audience. 😂 But instead of promoting products, the Keens are promoting themselves. How guache! And how typical of these rota rats to ascribe the Keens’ tacky ways to the Sussexes. They can always be counted on to flip the narrative.

    • Crowned Huntress says:

      Celebrities who live in NYC tend to go about unbothered, we walk past them all the time and maybe give them a headnod or a wink in acknowledgement but little else.

      Harry & Meghan could get an apartment here but the main issue would likely be the UK press or murdoch stooges trying to whip up chaos around them.

      I think New Yorkers would love to have them part time.

      • Liz says:

        This. I live in a Manhattan neighborhood with plenty of celebrities. We see them in Central Park walking their dogs, at the local deli getting coffee, on the playground with their kids and barely acknowledge that we recognize them.

        Decades ago, I lived in the same building as JFK, jr., shortly before he met/married Carolyn. Yes, there were photographers staking out the building all the time. But you still saw him going running, riding his bike, etc.

        I can see H&M doing the something similar. Having an apartment in NYC that they use when they are in town – knowing the paps are around and living their lives as they choose.

    • Anne Call says:

      As a California native, I lived on the east coast for 8 years. We left DC in a blinding snow storm and pulled into our rental home in Palo Alto with blooming plum tree and sunshine and I practically kissed the ground. Pretty sure H and M will stay in Montecito and travel to NYC and DC and probably Europe as covid disappears. This is just click bait.

      Also where does this writer think streaming services and the shows on them are developed? LA is still where it’s at for tv and movie deals.

  5. Nick G says:

    Kaiser, I love that you are considered “a very good source” by the BM. Let’s get some headlines going since these fools are clearly hanging around this site!

    • Snuffles says:

      They are. They TOTALLY are.

    • Surly Gale says:

      Exactly my take too, they heard it here first!! @Kaiser, you need to claim copyright and sue them for not giving you the credit… or something.

    • goofpuff says:

      It really is obvious they get all their good ideas from here. Too bad they don’t take our advice either.

      If they really did a REAL expose on William and Kate, it would make them so much more $$$ than they could ever make off the Sussexes. And even better, then they could do real investigative journalism on the entire British monarchy. Now THAT is something worth reading and Pulitzer prize winning.

    • Sid says:

      I am cackling because this is exactly what I thought. They saw Kaiser’s comment on how a NYC pied-a-terre would be useful in that other article and ran with it.

  6. Matthew says:

    These people really have no idea about America or how it works. “Golden days of Hollywood have peetered out” is very LOL. I think he must have been talking about Gloria Swanson.

    Having said that, I actually do think they should get a place in NY. They’re going to be here all the time.

  7. fluffybunny says:

    The BM are idiots. H&M are not “micro celebrities”. They’re full blown super stars.

    • Debbie says:

      Well, I think that’s where the BM betrays itself every time. If they REALLY believed that M & H were, in fact, “micro-celebrities,” then why would the BM spend so much time writing about them? This article for instance is about something which has NOT happened, so the BM thinks about M & H so much that they’re writing speculative articles about something which could conceivably happen – and the subject of the article is supposedly a “micro-celebrity?” Yeah, you’ve got to be really starving for content to write about people no one knows anything about, much less to be speculating about things that haven’t happened yet. So, what does that say about the columnist above or his newspaper? Pathetic. The BM wants M & H to be minor so badly it’s twisting them inside out.

  8. Lili says:

    Jeez give them a chance to get their feet under the table, its only been 18 months, which has been mostly pandemic riddled.

    • L4frimaire says:

      Right?! They’re still building Archewell, and have barely settled in. Also, they have ongoing productions in LA, ties to Silicon Valley, and the cushion of that 8 hour time difference. It really doesn’t matter where they live because so many of us have been working remotely this past year. It seems the UK press are so anxious to see what the Sussexes next move is, they’re writing stories based on Twitter posts, gossip, and posts like Celebitchy,lol. Of course, if they start doing more events on the East Coast, it may make sense to have a base there. Also having a real estate portfolio is pretty standard these days. However, 3 great days in NY does not mean they are moving there. If they ever have to go to D.C., watch the speculation about Meghan running for office pop up again. I guess it’s not just the Sussexes fans who are already missing them.

  9. Mandy says:

    “He also added that recent reports suggested that the couple were considering a “small place” in the city, to use as their base when conducting engagements in New York”

    This last line tells me everything I need to know. He and the rest of the royal commentators know nothing so they list 2 or more scenarios just to see which one sticks and honestly I see the likelihood of them finding a place in NY for their visits and vacations and then Montecito being their base.

    Many celebrities have multiple homes and I see them having a small penthouse in The West Village or a house in The Hamptons for when they’re in town. New York is a great place for business. It’s not as celebrity congested as California. Harry and Meghan can meet up with big investors in NY and I see them having an Archewell branch there as well.

    The only downside to living in NY permanently is that NY is a haven for paparazzi, even more so than California in most cases so I don’t see them moving there. The Sussexes said Montecito was gonna be their forever family home. And Harry doesn’t strike me as a city guy but more of a countryside man and Meghan is a California girl so I don’t see a NY permanent move at all

    • Becks1 says:

      “recent reports” – Celebitchy. LOL.

    • Tanya says:

      I don’t think the paparazzi are as big an issue here, honestly. They can’t just sit in their cars and stalk people. Hanging out on the corner in the dead of winter isn’t all that appealing.

      My kids go to school with the children of celebrities, and the only time I see paparazzi about is when the celebs want them there. It’s easy to tell when someone has a new album/movie coming out.

      • Gah says:

        I think it depends on neighborhood and celebrity.

        I live on a super chill but fancy block in NYC (it wasn’t that when we bought it) with tons of celebs and around the corner from the Bowery hotel and same block as poor Gigi Hadids second floor apt.

        It’s nonstop paparazzi day and night- lol even before Gigi moved in. I recognize the paps now bc they are so familiar. Some use groups of kids on scooters and skateboards as stringers which is weird. But it’s intense and pretty constant. That said the celebs and locals are chill. We truly DGAF.
        But for Harry and Megs they’d need a condo in NYC w drive in parking and room for security team so effectively two apartments.

        Beyoncé apparently has several floors of the Bloomberg tower and an Olsen is there too but it’s not a great neighborhood to live in I would think- tribeca has some of what they would need and is still chill and hip.

  10. Neners says:

    Man….that was the dumbest commentary I’ve seen on the Sussexes in America so far. The rota really knows next to nothing about the US 😂

  11. Kiera says:

    Honestly you would think these reporters would think more long term. You want them to stay in CA because how else are you going to be able to write stories about how they aren’t bring their kids up right by sending them to a holistic day school where they eat avocados and make voodoo dolls out of organic hemp.

  12. Seraphina says:

    No matter where in the US they could move to, these to will be movers and shakers.

  13. Snuffles says:

    Most celebrities who can afford it have places on both coasts. Some have even more places in major cities all over the world. So them buying a place in NY is the logical next step. I don’t see them buying a place in DC though. It’s an easy day trip between NY and DC and politicians and journalists commute back and forth all the time.

  14. Nicki says:

    H and M haven’t done a public event yet in LA. When they do, the scope of their celebrity will be immediately clear. There is enormous good will for them, especially with the non-stop bullying they get from the British tabs.

  15. Miranda says:

    A huge loft apartment in our building in the Village IS newly vacant. Just saying!

    Damn, now I’m sad because the story is probably bullshit and I won’t be chilling on the roof terrace and sipping sangria with Meghan. We’d totally be BFFs!

  16. Cessily says:

    Typical of Royal commentators they are always trying to make them “less than” it is so disturbing and glaringly obvious.

  17. Becks1 says:

    I do think they’ll get a place in NYC, probably sooner rather than later. But we might not know about it for a long time after it happens. It seems pretty reasonable to me. It’s not uncommon for the rich to have homes on both coasts, depending on the line of work they are in, and its definitely not uncommon for Hollywood celebrities (wtf is a micro celebrity?)

    But I don’t think they will ever move to NYC full time. They are in their “forever house” so to speak. And if that were my house, I would be too, lol. Climate, privacy, land, plenty of space for guests, and plenty of bathrooms, lets not forget.

    • Snuffles says:

      A micro celebrity is RR speak for trying to minimize them.

      • Lurker25 says:

        This!! @snuffles nailed it. They can’t talk about H&M without minimizing them, making them seem avaricious (“make money”), desperate, etc. They know what they’re doing – the word choice deliberately meant to convey a negative impression while ostensibly seeming like “straight” detached reporting (to general UK public not close readers of this sh*tshow).

        Also just want to echo those who say most of the RR don’t have a clue about the US. Truly embarrassing. I’ve lived here for 30 years – coasts, Midwest, South – it’s HUGE. England is like a Hobbit village by comparison.

      • Debbie says:

        Sort of like a “micro-country” by comparison, Lurker?

  18. Rapunzel says:

    Harry has that job with Better Up, ‘memba that, royal reporters? He’s not permanently relocating to NYC. Apartment, maybe, but it’s possible they’ll save money and just use hotels.

  19. Powermoonchrystal says:

    Kaiser, are you the source? Haha, I am sure some of these royal commentators just read Celebitchy :)

  20. Sofia says:

    I agree that they’ll probably get a place/flat in NYC but they won’t move their permanently. And if they do, it’s certainly not because they’re “micro celebrities”

  21. Tanya says:

    As a New Yorker, I’m so gratified that the British Media has seen fit to bestow my humble city with such honors. Maybe with such international attention, NYC will be able to support the type of cultural attractions that make a city truly world class.

    • Angelica Schuyler says:

      @Tanya, as a fellow NYer, I must commend your comment for making me chuckle on such a stressful morning! Maybe we’ll get some tall buildings…and a few shows…I hear they have some room down on Broadway for a theater or two! :)

      • Debbie says:

        Well, anything is possible. After all I hear that New York is soon to be an up and coming city, so fingers crossed you guys finally get some small attractions in the future.

        And who knows, if that happens then maybe some songs can be written about this poor anonymous city, and maybe we can all go back in time and movie studios can retroactively film some movies in NYC – perhaps even Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly cuz anything is possible if we go back in time.

    • bettyrose says:

      @Tanya – I heard you guys are the next big thing. Could be a boon for those little museums and play houses y’all have around there.

      • Becks1 says:

        Good luck NYers!! We’re all rooting for you and your little city that could! You could be something big someday!

        LMAO. Up and coming. Wtf. Lol.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      LOL. With the help of the British Media it just might be possible for NYC to have an area with a financial district, high end shopping venues, $$$ restaurants, major corporations with offices, news outlets, a big park, a globally known New Year’s Eve celebration…the possibilities are endless for this “up and coming city”.

      As mentioned by others, this was discussed by posters here early last week already. Hey rotas! Spend some time looking into how Kate’s patronages are doing…write about the impact of the ones that closed and how that effected the people they were helping.

    • SarahCS says:

      Earlier I saw a roundup of how we’re being featured in news cartoons around the world (the New Yorker, etc.) and they’re all 1. true and 2. hilarious but also 3. harsh. Clearly the BM is trying to build themselves/the tories/brexiteers back up by just repeatedly telling themselves that Rule Britannia and everyone else is less than us. Delusional but consistent.

    • Deering24 says:

      Hee, Tanya. As a New Jerseyan, I hope that some far-off glorious day my state can share in yours’ possible success. You know, you guys might want to consider making more seasonal use of some of those beaches out there. 🤣🤣🤣😎😎

  22. Amy Bee says:

    This guy is spouting nonsense. Who are these sources that are talking to him? And Meghan said on James Corden’s show that they’re not moving anymore.

  23. Liz version 700 says:

    This is so be strange? Why do they Cate where these “unimportant” non-working royals live? Why are they giving them real estate advice?

  24. Normades says:

    “Micro-celebrity” lol. Harry is a rock star and Megan is an icon.

  25. Shari says:

    They are not celebrities. Just like David and Victoria when they came to the USA. All the hype. Then when it settled people saw that they weren’t doing anything. Same with the Sussexes. Walking around and taking pictures. Telling people what issues they should be a part of is not going to get it. They signed big deals and now they need to produce something. Being Royal in the USA is not going to generate a long-lasting interest.

    • Becks1 says:

      I think you should check your sources.

    • TigerMcQueen says:

      Is this snark?

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        It’s something alright. Talking points that sound familiar by people who like to minimize what Prince Harry & Madame Duchess are actually doing.

    • swirlmamad says:

      I think you might be talking about the other two twiddling their thumbs back in the UK (minus the “signing big deals” part).

    • Over it says:

      Angela, Camilla, Carole, Dan, piss Morgan, Emily,, Becca, Victoria. Katie.?…

      w

      Which one are you?

    • Jaded says:

      Oh CarolE, we see right through you.

    • HeatherC says:

      How convenient for the Sussexes that they’re doing more than just being “royal” in the US. They just participated in a couple of events in NYC recently. Maybe you missed that? Then there’s Archewell, and “Pearl” and Invictus Games coming up. It’s so much easier to be a royal anywhere when you actually DO something with your platform.

      Are you of the school where there is so much more to being a duchess than using your platform and raising awareness with speeches and appearances, like showing up to a movie premiere in an expensive flashy gown to promote nothing but herself? That’s how REAL duchesses do it, right?

  26. Feeshalori says:

    Listen, royal rats, a little education for you. New York is known as The Big Apple for a reason. That phrase was coined about our city back in the 1920’s when it became known for its racetracks and nightclubs. This phrase took off meaning achieving the biggest and the best and we adopted it as our nickname. Also check out the lyrics to “New York, New, York” sung by Frank Sinatra where there’s the line “If l can make it there, l can make it anywhere.” That’s the anthem for our world renowned town. In fact, google the entire lyrics. Up and coming city, my a$$.

  27. Harper says:

    Hey, Neil Sean, newest Royal Commentator in town, I have a scoop for you. I heard that Meghan filmed an episode of Million Dollar Listing NYC. Ryan Serhant tried to sell her this very fabulous pocket listing in SoHo–5,00 square feet on two levels with granite countertops, all stainless appliances, gas burning fireplaces, all dark wood floors, sunken marble tubs in all twelve bathrooms and gorgeous views of Central Park but Meghan threw a fit because it wasn’t the penthouse.

    Then he took her to a gorgeous townhome on the Upper East Side with a basement swimming pool, paneled living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen with a ten foot long island, private garden with pizza oven and built in bar, heated four car garage with a marble floor that was only four houses down from Central Park but she wouldn’t even leave the limo because there was no yoga studio included.

    She is so hard to please. Don’t tell anyone though, okay?

    No friend,dog, cat or chicken of Harry and Meghan are talking to this hack. So he can keep on hacking away .
    And I really do want them to be bicoastal. I would love that for them , America loves prince Harry and Madame Duchess, these B——-Ches better recognize

    These British “micro royal reporters” clearly have no journalistic skills on subject matters that exceed their “micro brains”.

    If they are considering a move to NYC, the more likely reason is that it’s closer to the UK. A 6-7 hour flight and a five hour time difference are a lot easier to manage than a 12-14 hour flight and 8 hour time difference. These RR need to travel around a bit, get to know the world beyond the UK if they are to make up realistic lies about H and M.

    • Debbie says:

      M & H would consider moving to NYC because “it’s closer to the UK?”

      That’s it. No more wine this table!

  31. Robin Samuels says:

    The British tabloid journalists think CA is all about movie stars. Meghan is a native of CA; her mother resides in CA. After living in a royal prison for more than two years, separated from her mother, she should move to NYC, where once again, she has no family. NYC is not the ideal location for young children. Emily Andrews is the journalist that wrote about Meghan’s baby shower, the attendees, and gifts before it happened. So her credibility is below sea level.

    • Izzy says:

      NOW it makes more sense. Those rats would just love it if the Sussexes decamped to NY because in their feeble minds, it means Meghan would be more isolated and vulnerable once again. As noted above by many, these people don’t have a clue about NY. Or the US in general.

    New York is the best city in the US!

  33. Well Wisher says:

    Labels are so limiting, but useful since it is similar to fill in the blanks.

  34. The Recluse says:

    Being bi-coastal makes sense for them and their work and it would make a nice change of pace from California’s drought and smoky skies, although this year the smoke made it all the way to the east. But those pathetic British journos just don’t get it. H and M are A LIST all the way.

  35. HeatherC says:

    I can actually see a nice apartment or townhouse being purchased through Archewell for Harry and Meghan to use while in New York. Along with Archewell executives, maybe even Invictus or Sentebale executives etc when business needs to be done in New York.

    It is quite the up and coming city after all.

  36. LesRob says:

    Isn’t this Neil person the new royal commentator who has been showing up on NBC/The Today Show? He has annoyed me several times already with a UK gossip bent to his H&M stories. He needs to step off.

    Micro celebrities? Five words: Time magazine 100 most influential.
