Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Reportedly Moving to Africa

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly moving to Africa.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not only preparing for the birth of their first child, but it looks like the duo could be contemplating a major move.

As per the reporters of The Sunday times, Tim Shipman and Roya Nikkhah, "Courtiers have drawn up plans to hand the Duke and Duchess of Sussex a major international job that could see them moving abroad after the birth of their child."

The Sunday Times reports the destination would likely be Africa. A source shared, "Discussions are at an early stage, but the plan is to find a new way of using their soft power abilities, most likely in Africa."

The paper further explained Sir David Manning is spearheading the plan. Manning is the former British ambassador to the U.S., as well as a special adviser on constitutional and international affairs to both Prince Harry and Prince William. The move is expected to take place sometime in 2020.

The move, though, wouldn't take them away from the kingdom forever. The Sunday Times explained, the pair would work on their charitable missions and promote the United Kingdom during their stay there for a two or three-year term.

A move to Africa isn't new for Meghan and Harry. As a matter of fact, the pair spent their honeymoon in East Africa after falling in love during a trip to Botswana in 2016.
