Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's children could enjoy "glittering media careers" due to the influence of Hollywood, an author has said.

Tom Quinn claims that Archie and Lillibet will be "American through and through" and Hollywood will be a "massive influence" on them.

Tom, author of Scandals of the Royal Palaces: An Intimate Memoir of Royals Behaving Badly also believes it is "extremely unlikely" we will see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's children taking part in the same activities as other young royals.

The family is settling into life in Montecito, California, where they moved to just a few months after stepping back from the Royal Family.

The Sussexes live in a nine-bedroom home located in a gated community in Santa Barbara.

The property boasts nine bedrooms and 16 bathrooms, a tennis court, tea house, two-bedroom guest house and a chicken coop.

It also includes a pool and a pool house, and two palm trees joined together at the bottom of the garden.

The couple's neighbours and friends include US TV royalty, such as Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres. Meghan has said that the new home makes her 'feel free' and is 'calm and healing' to live in the luxury mansion.

Tom also said people shouldn't hold out hope that Archie and Lilibet will return to the UK.

It appears the family is here to stay in California.
