Tyler Perry visits Harry and Meghan
LOS ANGELES - Billionaire filmmaker Tyler Perry was spotted paying a visit to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s US$14.7 million Montecito home over the weekend. The Hollywood titan, who has famously offered several major assists to the royal couple as they settled into their American lives, was spotted hopping out of his US$200 000 Lamborghini Urus and into his US$125 million private jet in Los Angeles.
He then flew for 20 minutes to Santa Barbara, where he and the Sussexes met for about two hours before he headed back to his jet, which then made its way to his empire in Atlanta, Georgia.
The luxury private jet is the same one that Perry allowed Meghan and Harry to use for their so-called freedom flight in 2020, when they left their old life in the UK behind to set up a new existence in California.
Perry, who reportedly changed into a suit to see Harry and Meghan, travelled with a bodyguard. The filmmaker is godfather to Lilibet Diana - and Meghan and Harry both lodged at his Los Angeles mansion for multiple months in 2020.
He was pictured in a casual outfit comprised of black On Cloud sneakers, a collared shirt, a black zip up hoodie and black jeans. He appeared to be carrying a large water bottle filled with a dark liquid.
It was recently reported that Harry and Meghan were granted invitations to King Charles’ coronation later this year, but have not yet made it clear whether or not they would attend. A Sussex spokesperson told The Times: ‘‘I can confirm The Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty’s office regarding the coronation.
‘‘An immediate decision on whether The Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time.’’ One concern of the couple’s, according to royal experts, is ‘appearing an irrelevance’ if they do not attend King Charles’ coronation later this year.
