Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are loving their lives in America.

A source close to the couple tells ET that after their shocking royal exit in March and subsequent move to Montecito, California, the two have "no regrets" about their big decision.

"[They] feel very rewarded from their work," the source says.

The source also says that they have no concrete plans on a return to the U.K. amid the coronavirus pandemic, though there are occasions they are monitoring.

"Decisions will be made on a case by case basis and see where the medical protocols are around the time they decide to return," the source says. "Certainly, the Duke and Duchess have their eye on the Invictus Games, Trooping The Colour and Prince Phillip's birthday in June, and the unveiling of the Princess of Wales statue."

Back in October, a source told ET that 36-year-old Harry had no plans to return to his home country "anytime soon."

"Things can obviously change, if there's a concern about family health, but they are not hopping over the pond anytime imminently," the source said at the time, adding that the royals are adhering to "social isolation guidelines" amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile, on New Year's Eve, the couple posted a heartfelt message for 2021 on their Archewell website. The post included two photos -- one of Harry as a child on his late mom, Princess Diana's, shoulders and another of 39-year-old Meghan as a kid posing with her mother, Doria Ragland.

"I am my mother’s son. And I am our son’s mother. Together we bring you Archewell," the message reads. "We believe in the best of humanity. Because we have seen the best of humanity. We have experienced compassion and kindness, From our mothers and strangers alike."

"In the face of fear, struggle and pain, It can be easy to lose sight of this," the message continues. "Together, we can choose courage, healing, and connection. Together, we can choose to put compassion in action. We invite you to join us. As we work to build a better world, One act of compassion at a time."

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
