Will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Move to Africa?

After the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcome their first child, is a big relocation on the horizon?

According to The Sunday Times, the royal pair could be gearing up for a major move to Africa.

The Times reports that former British Ambassador to the US, and Harry and William’s Special Advisor on Constitutional Affairs, is planning for the couple to take on a more in international and “bespoke” position “that will combine some work on behalf of the Commonwealth with charity work and a role promoting Britain.”

The move would reportedly be for the duration of two to three years, but the decision will not be made until 2020. Buckingham Palace did respond to the reports.

"Any future plans for The Duke & Duchess are speculative at his stage. No decisions have been taken about future roles," a spokesperson told CNN.

"The Duke will continue to fulfill his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador,” the palace also stated.

Harry has spent significant time in Africa doing charity work. Harry and Meghan made several visits to the continent over the last few years, including a getaway to Botswana when they began dating, and a trip for Meghan’s 36th birthday.

“I’ve been lucky enough to visit Botswana for more than 20 years, and am incredibly fortunate to be able to call it my second home,” Harry said last year while doing work with a rhino conservation charity in 2018.

While the Duke and Duchess’ potential location change has not been confirmed, it would be quite the departure if they moved out of the UK for even a short period. Time will tell if they actually end up making the move!
