‘It Was A Difficult Time For Them’ • Hollywood Unlocked

Tyler Perry recently opened up about supporting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle amid their move to the United States in 2020, the filmmaker lended one of his California homes to the couple. While speaking with Today’s Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager on Sept. 21, he pointed out, “It was a very difficult time for them.”

“What I know about the two of them, and I wish the World knew, how much these two people love each other,” Perry said “They found each other out of all these odds against them finding each other.”

He added, “And the love they have is really, really moving and I wanted to do anything I could to support them.”

The former Suits actress recently talked about Perry befriending her soon after she married Harry in 2018. While they hadn’t met, he communicated to her that he was praying for her “and that he understood what this meant,” she told The Cut in August. “He could only imagine what it was like” for a biracial American to marry a British royal. The billionaire media mogul urged her to reach out if she ever needed support.

In 2020, she did — after she and Harry abruptly left Britain and royal life. They had set up a temporary home, with son Archie (they now also have Lilibet), in Canada, but their whereabouts had been discovered by the media and they had no security, having relinquished their royal roles.

“Sometimes, you can tell your life story to a stranger on a plane as opposed to some of the people that are closest to you,” Markle said of reaching out to Perry — whom she still hadn’t met in person — for advice on their next move. The man behind the Madea franchise offered them his Beverly Hills mansion, and security detail, while they plotted their next move. They lived there for several months before buying their $14.7 million Montecito, Calif., compound.
