Nowadays, British monarchists are eagerly awaiting one major event: The birth of the first child of Duchess Meghan (37) and Prince Harry (34).
However, in the midst of the preparations comes news, courtesy of the infamous British press, that Harry and Meghan want to emigrate.
According to a report in the Sunday Times, there are plans afoot in the palace for the young couple to move abroad.
It’s reported – should this happen – that at the top of the list would be South Africa, Botswana or Australia. Media is already feverishly speculating there about whether Harry could even become the new governor-general of Australia.
According to the information in the Sunday Times, a move to Africa is more probable, where the couple could have “an important international job”.
As it stands, the royal couple is already involved in numerous charities that operate in Africa. A life on the continent could reinforce this commitment, observers say.
Most recently, Meghan and Harry moved out of Kensington Palace, where they had lived with Prince William and Princess Kate. The pair now resides in their own estate in Windsor.
The palace meanwhile is holding back with statements, but has not denied the speculation. “No decisions have been made about the future roles of the prince and duchess,” a spokesman said.
