Prince Harry is beginning to find his feet in Los Angeles after being taken under the wing of Liza Minnelli, according to reports.
The 35-year-old British royal, his 38-year-old wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and their one-year-old son Archie moved to California earlier this year.
But settling in has reportedly been a little bumpy for the the British Prince – and not helped by the outbreak of coronavirus sending citizens into lockdown weeks after the family set up home in LA.
However, Harry is said to be growing close to 74-year-old Liza who was friends with his mother, the late Princess Diana.
A source told The Sun: “Harry has found the transition from the UK to LA very challenging at times, and lockdown hasn’t helped him establish himself yet.
“Liza reached out because she was close to Diana and offered her support. She’s been dealing with paparazzi for years, and knows the fame game.
“Obviously, Meghan comes from a theatrical background too, so it’s been great for the three of them.”
Princess Diana and Liza were believed to have a friendship in the 1990s, with the pair meeting following one of the American star’s UK shows.
The ladies were snapped enjoying drinks together at London’s Langham hotel in 1991
Liza previously discussed her friendship with Diana in Hello! magazine, revealing: “”I was lucky enough to count Princess Di as a friend.
“I was first introduced to her when she came backstage after a concert I did in London. Then we’d bump into each other at premieres or events where she’d be the guest of honour.
“We’d fall into conversation then we’d meet for tea . . . My instinct was to protect her. We talked about everything under the sun. She loved music.”
Harry, Meghan and Archie moved to Los Angeles in March just as the coronavirus outbreak sparked lockdowns across the globe.
The young family had been living in Canada, but flew to California to set up their new home shortly after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his intention to close the US-Canada border to help stop the spread of the virus.
