Meghan Markle’s high school sweetheart Luis Segura is spotted in LA

Meghan Markle’s high school sweetheart has been spotted in Los Angeles, as Meghan and Prince Harry are said to be looking for a home on her old crush’s home turf, exclusive DailyMail.com photos show.

Pictured for the first time ever, father-of-two Luis Segura was seen having lunch with a female friend and shopping for groceries before the city went into lockdown. 

The top real estate agent, 41, sells luxury homes in Pasadena, the suburb east of LA where Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, were reportedly eyeing up properties. 

The royal couple are thought to have been looking at homes in the Los Angeles area for months before flying from their hideaway in Vancouver Island, Canada, to California towards the end of March before borders were closed.

It has been claimed they are currently staying at a friend’s home in Malibu and have scouted properties there and in other celebrity enclaves, such as Beverly Hills and Bel Air.

But according to a report published in Vanity Fair last September, the couple also looked at possible future homes in Pasadena.

The upmarket suburban city is known for its Rose Bowl stadium and is home to many cultural and scientific institutions and high quality private schools.

It is not known whether they have consulted Luis and he remained tight-lipped when approached at his office in the city.

Asked about his relationship with Meghan, he replied: ‘I have no comment to make.’

However, he is described on his company’s website as a ‘constant award winner, top producer and an active member of multiple charitable organizations’.

A source told DailyMail.com: ‘Luis is exactly the kind of person you would want in your corner if you were looking to buy property in Pasadena.

‘He knows that market inside out and still has that sense of loyalty to Meghan not to speak about her to the press.’

The source added: ‘The fact that he is active on the charity scene would also be a big plus for Harry and Meghan, who have just announced the launch their new non-profit.

‘In addition to that, Luis and Meghan have that personal history and were very close when they were growing up. He ticks all the boxes.’

Despite the fevered coverage of Meghan’s life and her romantic history, Luis has surprisingly remained under the radar.

He currently lives a comfortable existence with Meghan-lookalike wife Christina – who runs her own beauty business – and their two sons.

Last year, pictures surfaced of Meghan and Luis at joint Christmas balls for two Catholic schools in 1996 and 1997.

Meghan was attending girls school Immaculate Heart in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles at the time while Luis was at all-boys St. Francis in La Cañada Flintridge.

The future Duchess of Sussex can be seen beaming and wearing a long black dress as she cuddles up to Luis at the first ball held at the legendary Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Downtown LA.

In the second photo she is wearing a low-cut spaghetti strap sequined slit dress, a choker and her hair in a stylish up-do as she poses with Luis in front of a Christmas tree.

The following year Meghan took Luis’ younger brother Danny to his high school prom after she was named homecoming queen.

She also got Danny – who now works in theater – to audition for his first high school musical when he was 15.

Our source said: ‘Luis and Meghan were very into each during their time as high school sweethearts. It’s fair to say Luis was madly in love with her.

‘And she was very sweet to him, fun to be around and loved his family too, so the memories are good.’

Last week Harry and Meghan announced their plans to launch a new non-profit named Archewell after the Greek word for ‘source of action’.

It comes after the couple were ordered to stop using the Sussex Royal brand after stepping down as senior royals.
