How Tyler Perry came to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry rescue. Following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s interview with Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry is trending on Twitter.
After the royal family cut them off financially, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex explained how billionaire filmmaker Tyler Perry stepped in to support them.
When Harry and Markle learned that they would no longer receive protective cover from the British royal family, they panicked over where they could go and where they would be safer. They were in Canada at the time.
Tyler Perry not only gave one of his southern California properties, but also a maximum security detail. They worked for three months there.
“When we were in Canada, in someone else’s home,” Prince Harry recounted, “I then got told, on short notice, that protection was going to be cut.”
He also said that his and his wife’s precise position was identified due to tabloids.
“Suddenly it occurred to me: ‘Hang on, the borders could be closed, we’re putting our survival at risk, who knows how long the lockout will last, the world knows where we are, it’s not secure, it’s not healthy, we definitely need to get out of here,'” he continued.
Meghan then told Winfrey that they didn’t have a proposal and “needed a home,” prompting Tyler Perry to intervene.
“We didn’t have a roadmap and we needed a home, and he also provided insurance, so it gave us breathing space to find out what we were going to do,” Meghan said of the couple’s first months in California to Winfrey.
Tyler Perry was praised on social media for his generosity to the couple during their time of need.
