Hollywood tycoon Tyler Perry personally sent his massive $150 million private jet to whisk Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Los Angeles in a top secret to move into his $18million (£15m) Beverly Hills mega-mansion.
The hush-hush operation allowed the secrecy-obsessed royals to leave their temporary home on Canada’s Vancouver Island and to avoid any wait at customs once they arrived in California.
‘It was a well-planned operation that appears to have worked perfectly,’ one insider said.
Harry and Meghan are living in Perry’s $18 million mansion in ultra-tony Beverly Ridge Estates just outside Beverly Hills.

According to DailyMail , Perry’s $150 million jet left its base outside Atlanta at 1:35am on Saturday, March 14 on its way to pick up Harry, Meghan and one-year-old baby Archie.
The plane landed at a corporate airport in Portland, Oregon, five hours later at 3:39am West Coast time, staying for a little over an hour before flying on to Victoria International Airport, just minutes from the waterfront home in North Saanich where they had been living since fleeing England.

It is not known whether the Madea star was himself on the Embraer-E190, a ‘stretch’ version of a plane mainly flown by JetBlue Airlines in the United States. Pictured: A concept photo of the interior of Perry’s Embraer Lineage 1000
Perry bought the Embraer in 2017 (pictured) and houses it at McCollum Field, a municipally owned airport in Cobb County just outside Atlanta. The Hollywood star was given a $1.8 million tax break to keep it there under a top-secret plan known as ‘Project Meatloaf
Rather than being registered directly to Perry, it is owned by a holding company known as ETPC Aviation.
The plane, with a top speed of 541 mph, is large enough to carry up to 124 people in coach class.
The couple have never been seen in public with Perry but are believed to have met him through their mutual close friend Oprah Winfrey
Both the Sussexes and Perry consider Oprah their Hollywood mentor. Oprah is even godson to Perry’s five-year-old son Aman, and was seen at the house Meghan and Harry are now staying at for his Christening party back in 2015 (pictured)

It is not known whether Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, are renting Tyler’s property or staying there as guests, but there is no record of the mansion having been sold
As per sources report ‘Meghan and Harry have been extremely cautious to keep their base in LA under wraps. They have been at this property for a month without anyone finding out’
‘Beverly Ridge is an excellent place to keep out of view
It goes without saying that the location is stunning — just one of the most beautiful and desirable areas in LA.’
