Royal spouse Meghan and Prince Harry are searching for a spot out right here in Malibu to feather their royal nest.

LA cafe proprietor Edmund Fry, 79, first met Meghan when he taught her royal etiquette at his English tea room. 

And his interview with the Daily Mail is the single source for the rumor sweeping the British tabs … 

“Meghan is a Los Angeles woman, born and raised right here with many hyperlinks to Hollywood and associates right here.”  [Stupid royalist newspaper thinks a hyperlink is something other than this: ]

Malibu is residence to many Hollywood and superstar stars together with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kim Kardashian.  [Stupid royalist newspaper thinks Kim Kardashian lives elsewhere than Calabasas. ]

Says the Daily Mail:  Pals star Jennifer Aniston lives within the California metropolis of Malibu which is residence to many star-studded neighbourhoods   [Stupid royalist newspaper thinks Malibu is a metropolis. ]

The proprietor of Rose Tree Cottage cafe mentioned: “It’s doable to reside stress-free and out of the glare of publicity right here.” [Stupid royalist newspaper thinks Malibu is free from the glare of publicity. 

The “news”paper also reports that “Mr Fry mentioned Meghan’s LA enterprise associates have been scouting the Pacific Coast Freeway and Pasadena for potential locations for the royal couple.”  Breathtakingly stupid reporting.
