Prince Harry apparently spends time on his own at a luxury hotel near his home in California, it has been reported.
The Duke of Sussex has a room kept on hold at a chain in Montecito, close to the £12 million mansion he shares with Meghan Markle, according to The Sun.
Sources have told the newspaper that Harry occasionally stays at the room without his wife.
Reports that the royal couple spend some nights apart have emerged after they failed to post any photos commemorating their fifth wedding anniversary on Friday.
Harry is also thought to have a second hideaway pad at San Vicente Bungalows, a private members club in Los Angeles, near where he attends a gym class called Barry’s Bootcamp.
Guests are prohibited from discussing anything that takes place on the premises, with stickers placed over their phone cameras upon arrival, as well as from approaching other members indoors.
Annual membership fees reportedly run in excess of £3,200. Applicants are apparently vetted by a panel that’s thought to include American actress Julia Roberts.
Harry and Meghan have repeatedly insisted on their right to privacy after breaking ties with the royal family and moving to the US.
Recently, the royal couple made headlines after they were subjected to a ‘near catastrophic’ car chase at the hands of local paparazzi in New York, which they claimed involved two ‘near misses’.
Many have commented the episode bears a reminder to the events preceding the death of Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, who was killed in a car crash in Paris while being pursued by the paparazzi in 1997.
However, the taxi driver who gave the royal couple a ride has since claimed they weren’t in fact being chased by photographers.
Asked about the incident, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, apparently under the impression that the alleged chase had taken place in the UK, said: ‘My job as prime minister is to ensure everyone feels safe in our country.’
Being informed that the incident had actually occurred across the Atlantic, he added: ‘Cars in New York are not really my priority or my responsibility.’
